here is a picture of my blue ram. he is about 6 months old. he lives in a 45 gallon community planted tank with another blue ram (also 6 months old) dwarf gouramis, plattys, glo fish, mollys and 2 south american cat fish. rams need a lot of care but are well worth it in my opinion. the most important thing? water changes. i do one (about 7-8 gallons) every third day using ro water with added trace elements.

Crowntail Betta (Betta Splendens)

I picked this one up not too long ago. I couldnt resist because of the way his fins look with large portions actually clear and other parts light blue. My wife suggested naming him. Being the jokester I am I told her I thought he looked Irish so I was naming him Gill-bert Fin-negan. The name stuck.

He resides in a 1.5 gallon tank with a rock decoration and some live anacharis. Sometimes he likes to sit on one of the loops formed by the strands of the plant, like sitting on a swing.

He eats dried blood worms and betta flakes (only 1 type per day) with one day each week as a fasting day.

Why do I love fish? Because every time I stare into the little world I have created for them, every problem I have just floats away....

This is Apache, my African Featherfin Catfish (synodontis eupterus). This species has the nickname Featherfin Squeaker, in honor both of the incredible feather-like high fin and also the noise they make to communicate. Eupterus is Greek for "beautiful wings". He also has spooky blue eyes.

Apache resides in a planted 75 gallon tropical tank with blood parrot cichlids and emperor tetras. There is a sand substrate which accommodates his gorgeous feathery barbels.

Temp: 79
Food: frozen mysis shrimp and plankton, cichlid flakes, bloodworms, shrimp pellets, algae wafers
75: blood parrots, featherfin cat, emperor tetras, turquoise rainbowfish, BN plecos, japanese trapdoor; 46: WCMM, gold inca snails, ghost, bamboo & amano shrimp, kuhli loaches, rummynose & ember tetras, endlers, platies, flame gourami, guppies; 16: pygmy, peppered, loxozonus corys, otos, assassins, RCS ... ~ Research PRIOR to purchase.... ~
