I used to have a clown knife. I miss that species, they're so awesome and graceful!

I also miss my redbelly piranhas, those were some beauties.

Good good! Glad to see all is going well for you (I would assume things are going well considering the amount of expensive fish you have! )
How fast do they grow? I'm guessing pretty slow.

They are quite cute as babies! But you have to make sure you share pictures of them as adults one day. They are just gorgeous as adults!!

What about ironic names like Tiny or Mouse or Shrimp. Nothing like calling a fish bigger than you, Mouse.

I'm jealous! I wish I could have an arapaima so bad. But I know that isn't realistic at all seeing as I live in ohio, and I don't have enough land to build a good sized pond for one.

On another note, I am planning to buy whatever the next standard size of tank after 125 is next year and will be getting my dream fish, a black ghost knife!

That's awesome! An arowana is my dream fish (after I get my own place + more fish keeping experience anyway...)

I'd never seen a baby arapaima before either. Or any being sold, for that matter. It's really cute!

Funny how they're babies but they still need a tank bigger than me...heh...I'd love to see them all grown up and in their permanent enclosures. (If I had a lake with an arapaima I'd find it really heard to resist jumping in and swimming)
