    Thumbs up

    I had a 16" Silver Arowana which jumped and knocked itself out on the canopy one day. BUT, predatory fish? i had em all.

    Pirannahs, Fresh water barracudas, 12 inch Pacu's (They're actually known as vegatarian pirannah's), Needle Nose Gars, Stingrays, Sturgeons, fiddler Crabs, Crayfish...etc

    However, it was a pain to go out and buy feeder fish all the time so now I only have one 50 gallon tank with a couple fancy guppies, a couple tetra's and a ghost shrip. lolz

    freindly correction:
    actually, they're not pirannahs, or vegatarian pirannah's, but they are relitaves of the pirannah... (I'll have to check the latin name to be sure...)

    ehehe...yep, that's what i meant [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] but i've heard alot of ppl refer to them as vegatarian pirannah's *shrugz* eheh

    well, they're pretty dirty fish, but they look cool! I dunno what it is, either they piss alot or what. I used to feed them flakes when they were small....then when they got bigger, i fed them chicled pellets and just upgraded in size as they grew. Small pellets, medium pellets then large. Eventually, they grew too big for my tank (i had 3 pacu's) so i went out to the local canadian tire store and bought a childrens swimming pool (6foot diameter) to put in my basement!! lolz, so yeah, i had them in there for awhile, pretty cool but then just ended up trading them in for other fish.

    I have a red Oscar. I've had him for about 4 years. He's 10" long not counting his tail. I've had him since he was smaller than what size just his tail is now. He is quite determined to keep his 30 gal tank arranged the way <i>he</i> wants it. Even when he was real little I thought I could get away with having a beautiful Amazon sword plant in there. Nothing doin'. Woke up the next morning and he'd completely destroyed it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] Next I tried plastic with the same results as the live one. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] He has one of those air curtains too. He loves it. It started out being nicely arranged along the back of his tank. Note that I said, <i>"It started out"</i>. He promptly moved it out away from the glas and off to one end so he could swim through it. Only stands to reason I guess that since he lives in water he'd like to bathe in air.
    The large rock he used to hide behind when he was little he now pushes around when he's mad. He's fun to watch, but also a messy eater.
    I have koi and comets outdoors in a 2,000 gal pond/bog too.
    Bye for now,
