Phil's got two tanks right now. He used to have like 18 of them and 6 or so were 50gal or above.

Over Christmas our power went out and ALL of our fish died b/c the heaters went off so we are starting over.

This is what we've got now:

In a 30 gallon


In the baby tank, a few of these



My favorites are Firemouth Meekis and Discus Fish:

I have 12 fish...Jasper, Jerry, Elliott, Conor, Steve, Skippy, Jack, Meg, Napoleon, Oliver, Reggie, & Kramer. I've had my tank going since January of last year. I haven't taken many pics lately though...and the ones I have haven't been resized, cropped, and uploaded yet. I've got some older pics though.

These are my angels, Jerry is the black one, Jerry is the white one. Jerry's one ventral fin is funky, it is always stuck up like that.



Steve, Conor, & Skippy:

Reggie is my newest fish, I got him last fall:



My pleco Kramer, with Elliott peeking from behind the ship:

Joey Ramone died over New Year's.

Oh well, he had a good run. He lived longer than I thought he would have.

The angels are my babies, I admit it. Not that I don't love my other fish, don't get me wrong...but my angels are more interactive. They watch me. They will follow my fingertip as I move it along the glass. If I'm at one end of the tank, and they are at the other, they come zooming towards me...and then sometimes they swim up to the top, hoping I'll drop in some treats. They are huge beggers! I usually can't say no though, so they have reason to beg...

I think I was feeding them too many treats for awhile though, Jasper stopped eating the regular flake food in the morning. Once it was all gone, he'd come up to the top, looking at me like, give me the good stuff!!! I stopped feeding anything but morning flakes for two days, and he took the hint and started eating regularly again.

That's cool. My bettas follow me around too and always come right up to me when I stick my face in front of the tank. When its time to eat they know it and do a little dance or some tricks

Overnight I think, we weren't there. We keep our tanks near 90 degrees though, and the temp. fluctuation is what killed the fish. Since the heat wasn't working in the house either it was very cold.

I do too!


Back in the day when the tank actually contained fish, we had convict cichlids:



There were two large male/female pairs who were dominant. They set up separate "homes" at each end of the tank, and bred like crazy. The tank would get too full, and we'd sell some of the young fish to a fish and aquarium store.

We also have a now empty 35 gallon that we used for communal fish. There were all kinds of varieties in there.

Anyone want to buy two tanks with a stand and supplies?

your fish is STILL alive Sicy??? I remember you showing me a pic of it a year ago or so!!!

I miss my fishies... my aquarium started leaking and since I had a guitar next to it had to get rid of it asap, and my friend now has them... they're still alive so that's a good thing, but I miss it tho, I've had an aquarium for like, 10 years or so!

Perhaps one day I'll fix up the aquarium and get fish again, or I'll get a lizzard... I'm still not sure, but as for now I don't have the time to do it!

I don't have the pic of them anymore either...

but I love seeing these pics tho!

Fish can live a long time if they're taken care of properly!

I had African Cichlids as my first fish but at the time I knew nothing about fish. I had like 3 of them in a 5 gallon Anyway they lived for like a year and then one day I came home and the heater was all the way up and all the fish were dead I was heartbroken. I dont know if I did it by accident or if the cats knocked the heater.
