I want that giant 600 gal tank on craigslist. I wonder if I could talk my folks into it . . . "But dad, I don't have a car so surely we could spend the $2500 on that!" Except, it's not even the cost, it's where to put it.
My dad just called and didn't even recognize my voice. Really, dad? Goofball.
Diablo, well, in theory Sparky could reach up to 49" but in practice, all captive electric catfish seem to max out at about 16" or so. *crosses fingers* They're super accomodating regarding water chemistry. Sparky's currently in a 55gal and is about 7.5" long.
o.o It was just a joke. I didn't mean offence to anybody! Ah, I better be careful with my words. :( Sorry. Really.
It's ok, lucky for everyone I have a will of steel forged in hell and tempered every day since. My heart is not so far gone as it cannot return yet, but every year it becomes harder. But that's what I have pets for, they give me something care for in the mean time.
But on to another subject my dad once worked with a guy who faced off with a rabid raccoon, he walked up and smacked it with a crowbar. Trust me when wild animals attack you gotta do what you gotta do!

I used this tool to look for catfish^ It's not the best though, if you type in pH range from 7-8, it'll give you fish that have that exact range, not like a fish that says pH 7.5-8. So I just leave them all blank minus size. :p
They're doing well. They finally started eating but mostly only the spirulina brine shrimp I feed at night. They do nibble at pellets as they go by. I've seen one male chase another male but so far, not even nipped fins. I'm a bit worried about them come winter. I may have to move them indoors and leave the coldwater fishies to finally enjoy the cooler water. I feel bad that it's in the 80's for the dojos. I hate having to keep the tanks in the garage.
Hey.....catfish gotta eat too! XD I just realized.....in the 29, I have 2 Platies, a single BN Pleco, and 6 girls. And the Krib. I have room for like 2-3 more girls 0-0 hey....can the Krib count as my sorority alpha?
Edit: Congo Tetra? Are they in with Sparky? Anyone want to tell me how much fish Sakura has now? :D
