This is will be the official start of Sakura's oddball fish collection. She will scour pet stores far and wide, in search of the oddest, most amazing fish!

...wait what?

Maybe on the tube(the website) he will be a STAR! Just an idea....

I currently own a male betta fish, a female betta fish, two eastern painted turtles, one western painted turtle, one Chinese dwarf hamster, and a whole load of guppies.

I told my dad that I wanted my next big fish to be a motoro ray. He said, "Can't those like . . . kill you?"

Sparky! The fish version of Hypno-Toad!!

I think this is the start of an oddball fish collection, too! Soon you'll be spending as much time as as on MonsterFishKeepers! What are motoro rays?

Up to 39" across and in constant movement because they lack swimbladders. I want an indoor swimming pool for this fellow.

Someone stop me before I get a redtail catfish. O.o

Almost on a par with wanting ones of these in your tank:

African Tiger Fish

That picture is of a baby..

Here is an adult

Tiger Fish - Hydrocyus forskahlii

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

Those are beautiful! Have you ever seen teacup stingrays? Those guys are adorable!!! ^-^

I kinda want an indoor pond, too. There is a type of double-tail goldfish with a body like a comet called the wakin that I would love to keep, but they are best done as pond fish. Just a simply 1000 gallon pond should hold a school of them.

If I ever got stupid rich I would have like three ponds.

I read the stats on the liveaquaria and was like, "Wait, did that just say they get 3 feet? COOOOOL!"

EDIT: Izzy, no, googling them now. Oooh. That's a little more manageable than a motoro.

Get a kiddy pool for a teacup ray. I don't think regular tanks are good for rays, not enough floor.
What I really want is an eel. Sparky is pretty much looking like an eel. Or, like a 1000 gallon giant gourami biotope.
(someday)

I think we had a red tail cat at our fish store. We also have a bunch of tiger shovel nose, another huge problem. (but AWESOME).

And sparky has sent me into a daze, so snap out of it...its those eyes though!
