I brought the bichir for him as a gift. He seen it up at Petco, the only one they had there. He thought it was rather cool and seeing how he brought me the tank setup (20gal) I felt like I should get him the fish he wanted. We gathered the fishes here and there as we saw ones we like. The angelfish and bristlenose were the first ones. I take care of all the fishies without minding it, rather enjoy doing so.
