What?? I asked about caring about multiple bettas?? Leave it to me. I totally don't remember. A little too many pain pills I think. Another before bed, I'm zonked but it's better than the heavy burden of foot, heel, arch, calf,knee and lower back pain. Time to see a podiatrist..

About the fish dreams, all I got out of it was that something in your life is amiss., Not necessarily bad, but different (fish swimming in air is considered 'out of place')..

Laki! xD

Hah, with the arrowana, there's your excuse to get a bigger tank!

You could look into datnoids. If I wasn't doing an African tank I'd want one.
Datnioides polota (Silver Tiger Fish) — Seriously Fish
Datnioides microlepis (Indonesian Tiger Fish) — Seriously Fish

They're all pretty much the same looking, just different sizes. There's like, 6ish species I think.
Of course, looking into the "diet" section of them, you'll end up like me with feeding. xD

WOAH nevermind just looked up the prices of those fish on aquabid. Not worth hundreds for a fish Sparky could zap.

I will find SOMETHING for you Sakura!

Edit: Nvm one baby is only like $30. I was looking at a 5 pack. But they are very slow growers so it'd be forever before a 2" fish would be big enough for Sparky.

My LFS has a tankful of datnioides. I never bothered to check the cost though. I wonder . . . the pair of full-grown mated Jaguar cichlids was $65 . . .

I don't think mated cichlids would be very nice to Sparky. :(

All the awesome fish are bottom dwellers.. what is going on here?

Hey check this one out-

Lives with a bichir.. if you read down the description and the comments.. LATEX gloves. What a great idea. Unless you have an allergy to it.

Eee! I saw a black ghost knifefish in there too! I wonder how big that tank is. I may be moving by early next year and I plan to upgrade the tank to at least a 180. Then I can have a knifefish with Sparky. :D

EDIT: 75gal. Hmmmm . . . I'd have to totally redo the 55gal first to add more hiding spots.
