    Colorful fish of all varieties! But I love horses too. Worked with and raised/trained lions, tigers and bears, oh my!!! as well as bottled raised many other exotic animals such as raccoons, badgers, cougars, skunks, lemurs, wolves and wild boars. Never a dull moment at my house!

  5. There is a misconception out there that among male America's only the male gets the nuchual hump. Here are photos of my large pair. The female is the orange one, the male mostly white. Both are over a foot long. The male is easily a foot deep.

    How many you want. I have fry of one inch. $20 each.
  9. Are they harmful? The cat fish is very messy and eats a lot. So what you said makes sense.
  10. I have a 180 gallon with sand substrate run by an FX5. When I do water changes and stir up the sand there are thousands of 1cm long worms about half the width of sewing thread floating EVERYWHERE. fish are large waking cat, big front, oscar, true parrot and a parachromis sp. all seen fine. Should I be worried?

  14. Wow, every single response here was awsome and responsibly written. I too don't want to see LFS go extinct. As consumers we can use our buying power to influence what I consider a road to win, win for everyone. What I'm going to suggest will not only keep fish stores in business but help local breeders as well, and in doing this will inevitably offer healthier fish to consumers. When you go to your LFS ask for locally raised fish. They will probably look at you like your head is made of cheese. But if enough of us do this, stores will catch on. There is a demand for locally raised fish. Fish that haven't travelled thousands of miles, cramped in overcrowded bags where the survivors, though healthy, are weekened by stress and prone to disease. As mentioned by many posts above, local breeders have fewer tanks and more time to care for their fish. Their fish are raised in local water conditions and are subjected only to a short trip to the fish store. Resulting in stronger fish, less susceptible to paracites and disease that circulate through display tanks. The truth be known, 80% of the fish exported from Asia to North America are Asia's culls. Truth be known, WE GET THE JUNK. i've heard this from many importers and wholesalers. Europe gets the second best but the best they just don't export. Asia breeds lots of fish because they love fish. But only a small percentage of fry will be quality, so the culls are sent to us. If you want quality fish, buy from local breeders who search far and wide, even bring in or smuggle fish in their suit cases to get good breeding stock and then raise healthy, quality fry.
