If you're a serious betta breeder, Mo, I completely understand wanting to focus on bettas. Why would someone not understand that? I know a goldfish breeder who has nothing but tons of goldfish... some of which are rare breeds imported from Japan. It just makes sense. But then again, common sense isn't.
I've got too short of an attention span to focus on one fish. Plus I like too many fish to have just a few tanks.
I know I've shared these shots with my friends over on the TFK side, but I thought I'd share them with you guys, too. I finally got pictures of my loaches!!
This is how I usually see them. Attractive, no? If you can even see the little thing. It's just his tail sticking out.
And then I finally got this shot!! ^-^ And then adjusted a few things to make it better.
While I was drudging through my volumes of photography, I found some neat shots of fish from when I worked for the US Forestry Service.
Creek chub underwater. Really common little guys. You can also go fly fishing for them.
Redfin darter. We caught him with a backpack electro-shocker. They're hardy enough to keep in aquariums.
Pumpkinseed sunfish. Beautiful little things.
These are some fish shots from my recent trip to South Carolina. The island we were on had a small nature center. In it they have a salt marsh tank with critters taken from the marshes around the island. Neat little fish in there.
Mummichog. They are a type of killifish native to the eastern coast of the US.
Some crab. I'm calling him "king crab" because he looks more adorned than this next guy.
Regular crab :P
