A paludarium with archer fishes, scats, and monos... Mudskippers too if possible.

Is this an unattainable dream or a realistic dream? I've got planned setups in the future, and then I've got crazy dreams that I would need to win the lottery to accomplish.

My realistic dream is a 150 gal discus biotope with schools of cardinal tetra, rummynose tetra, and black neon tetra. It will probably cost a few thousand dollars to set up. A 125 gal SE Asian river biotope with denison's barb and some other cyprinids would also be amazing. But again, another couple of thousands of dollars.

My completely unrealistic dream is a 50,000 gal sturgeon pond with side-viewing panes. :P Not gonna happen unless I hit it big.

A white-tipped reef shark that's purple with lime green tiger stripes. It would be in a glass aquarium that is 40ft long x 25ft high x 15 ft wide

My other dream fish/tank is an orange Dalmatian veiltail betta in a 5.5 gallon :3

As a most likely unrealistic dream, I would like to have a very long, shallow tank divided up. Each section would be set-up to mimic exactly the habitat of the three following killifish species.

Aphyosemion cyanostictum
Aphyosemion abacinum
Aphyosemion georgiae

Otherwise I own all of my previous 'dream' fish. They just don't have dream tanks to accompany them haha.

  • 20 gallon tank with dwarf puffers
  • 50 gallon sorority
  • Large community tank (100+) with glass catfish and black neon tetras and...not really sure what else yet, haha. I've always wanted to keep Angels too, although idk if they'd be compatible. Kuhli loches too...
  • Large tank for rope fish (they're SO cute!) or a tank for any type of snake-looking fish (eels, bichirs, etc.)
  • A large custom made tank for an arowana (no colour preference)

See: my own personal Marineland

And for saltwater, I've always wanted to own seahorses...

I'm a simple mind--a 10 gallon tank with a chocolate male halfmoon and three or four african dwarf frogs, crushed puka shell substrate, all live plants, and a laughing buddha.

A tank full of piranhas in my secret lair... under a volcano...

I MEAN JUST A NORMAL TANK OF GOLD FISH. Nothing suspicious or evil about that!

No but seriously, if I could have anything fish in the world, I'd want to have a koi pond. I've heard koi are like dogs once they get used to you. In that they learn their names and come when they're called and let you pet them.

But if we're talking about aquatic life in general then I have to say what I really want is a mimic octopus.
