I was with my mom today at a greenhouse, she was lookin at flowers and i was along for the ride. The little old lady that owns it heard me talking about fish. She said " i have a really big shark i am giving away"
Mom- is it a saltwater
Lady- no its a 125g flat back hex, with freshwater fish and the shark is this big ( measures with her hands) ( about 16-18")
ME- is it an iridescent shark?
Lady- yes it is in with a bunch of other fish.
So we go in and i nearly had a heart attack. In this 5' tank and prob 20" at the widdest point is a 17-20" irr shark, x2 6" red fin tin foils, x1 6" bala, x1 7" catfish of some sort, and about 15 yellow labs from 1"-5" .
She asked me if i wanted the irr. I said no prob not because it will grow to the size of the tank. Then i tell her that i will be breeding (or attempting to) extremelly aggressive fish (festae). She says to me that the irr will not bother them or eat the fry, so i told her that im not worried that it would eat the fry, im worried the festae will kill it. She then says that if i get the festae small and geow them up with the irr they will get along. I decided to keep my mouth shut and not tell her how unpredictable festae are. Plus the tank was covered with brown algae and was filterd by one marineland hob
I dont know what im trying to say. I just needed to tell you guys lol.
