It was hard for me to pick one of the catfish because they are all just so unbearably cute!

Okay guys. Number 4 is easy to find, just a feather fin, and will reach a good 12". I'm hoping to get two species, so I'll bring the whole list down to the fish store. Some of them are probably rare.

With fiddlers.. hmm well I'd do probably Celebes rainbow fish or Indian glass fish. Small and won't get in their way.

Just found these and they can live in a 10 gallon and I love them <3

Would these work together? The tank will be a planted 20g, and we have soft, neutral water. If I get the 75g for Comet, it'll free up the 20g; and I've been wanting my first community for a while now.
Edit: The substrate will most likely be sand.

There are few species that can be acclimated to the low end water density of the fiddler crab (1.005). Oddly most mollies and guppies, along with American flag fish. And given the crab's ability to live in fresh water temporarily, I could keep them together initially in fresh water and over time add salt water with each water change until the density is brought up.

There is just so much info to take in and so many options. X3

Not odd at all. All these fish live in coastal areas and can move back and forth between fresh and brackish freely. Guppies have even been acclimated to full sea water strength in the past with no negative effects.

Hi Kinetic! You're overdue for a pic of at least Magilla. I wanna see!

Many gobies and figure 8 puffers are brackish. How big would it be? Monos and scats work but they get big.

Sakura, ropefish don't get very wide do they? Everywhere says it'll eat what fits in it's mouth but I have no clue what sort of girth they have. :s

Anyways I think I'm heading to bed now!

They don't get wide at all. They're probably some of the narrowest fish around. They stay even thinner than bichirs. However, remember that snakes can fit things in their mouths that are wider than they are soooo . . . anyway, just don't put the farlowella with it.

Aw, this was sweet. This is my email from earlier, I'd just like to share it. Edit: The persistence part refers to us getting lost in Asheville for at least an hour when we bought the little guys. xD

Hello,

Today I was thinking that you may wonder how the toads were doing, so I figured I'd let you know they are happy and as fat as ever. (:

Reply: I'm so glad they got a great home. I'm also proud of your persistence in their pick up. It was then that I knew that they were going to the right family. Thank you very much for the update.

Oh god no. Just worried about the female krib, she'll be the smallest thing in there. I'll have an awesome cave going so hopefully she'll defend herself. And the baby synos too.

Snakes can only open their mouths that wide because the bottom of their jaw disconnects.. Like if you have no bone in the middle of your chin. Hope ropefish don't have that. I read that they're thought to be closely related to amphibians.


Also, check out this JD. Pretty. But why is it with African cichlids. o-o
