So, I have personal notes on fish and plants I want, tank layout and organization, plans, etc, and it thought that now would be an appropriate time to share the things I want to do outside of the domesticated splendens world. These are the fish that I would eventually (and by that, I really mean eventually) like to own. First I'll need an ro/di system and space and time and money. I'm a patient person though, and recognize that rushing things only ever leads to failure and/or burnout in the fish world.
Notice that many are CARES listed (if you know what that is- if not, research it- it's a nice organization) or endangered/critically endangered/extinct in the wild. I would like to be part of preserving these, fish are something I'm passionate about and there aren't exactly tons of people working on fish species preservation. Seeing species go, whatever they may be, is one of the saddest things that can happen IMO.
The list is in no particular order, though there are some I definitely want before others. Oh and, uh, some of these are from LittleBettaFish cuz to be honest they're way nicer then anything on the web, I'll credit her and hope she doesn't mind haha. Names of the species are underneath the picture.
So, let's start!
Betta sp. "apiapi"
(Celestial pearl danio, CPD, Galaxy raspbora)
(Licourice gourami species)
Neocaridina cf. zhangjiajiensis var. white
Neocaridina heteropoda var. Orange
Neocaridina cf. zhangjiajiensis var. blue
(Blue pearl shrimp)
(Red cherry shrimp, RCS)
Tylomelania var. orange
(Orange rabbit snail)
And, uh, my favorite aquatic creature picture, cuz I'm uploading pics right now. It's a nudibranch sea slug species of some type. A big part of me wants it as my avatar, so don't use it lol.
...How beautiful was that post. I think part of why I did that was because I wanted all my dream species in one place, ha!
