:P Nothing around here but sunfish. Wanna trade?

Native tanks are a lot of fun. Sunfish need a pretty big one, tho. I'd probably go with some of smaller minnows and dace as well as a few darters. Trout are beautiful, but they require a highly specialized setup.

The darters are gorgeous. I've heard though that natives, especially pygmy sunfish from Florida, tend to eat or at least thrive only on livefoods.

I'm actually trying to figure out why I'd want to keep a trout when I could keep a pretty sunfish instead. :)

Your grandparents have a HUGE natural pond though, right? Lucky them.

That's awesome they have a pond that big D: Did they get rainbow trout?


Here's two of my guppies

This guy is from a store that imports their guppies from Japan D: Super pretty guppies with a average tail size(I think the huge tails are too funky lol). He's been alone for a while so this week I bought 3 guppy buddies for him and they swim around being bros. I also have a few in a breeder that I adopted from work who I had hoped would be males but they're all girls XD Still too tiny to go in the aquarium.



I love this boys color, he's from petsmart

Some aquabid guppys are crazy looking but also cool. At dolphin pet village they often have huge tailed guppies but they cost between $6-$10 and I can bring myself to spend more then a dollar or two on a guppy.

Only if I was planning on breeding them for show. Otherwise, that's a lot of money. Dang, I'm about to send you my guppy. He harasses everyone because he's all alone and I don't want to get any more.

Bekah, your grandparents must live in a rather cool area. Around here trout stocked in ponds don't last the summer. It gets too hot for them. They stock rainbows in the streams, tho. Well some of them.

Sakura, a lot of the darters and pygmy sunfish do need live. But there are some hardy and pretty darters. The one I pictured is one of them. Unfortunately they aren't found this far north. But there are a lot of pretty minnows, and those are easy.

Beautiful guppies, copper! I like livebearers, but I've never been a fan of guppies. Most of them seem too gaudy especially with huge tails, but yours are beautiful. I'd like to have a tank of endlers one day. Preferably N class.

Feeding live foods wouldn't be a problem if only I had mosquitoes.
