If you had unlimited resources to pay for fishkeeping, is there anything you'd like to try to accomplish?
I know certain members have fish they would like to breed eventually - like Etunes with caecilian worms. This is a great example.
I would like to try new things as well! For instance, fishy - experiments. For example, water temperature is dropped 2* F in a short time before each feeding. Feedings always take place on one side of the tank. Will the fish react like Pavlov's dog and return to the feeding place with only a drop in temperature?
Or, other large-scale projects - like krap101 (Danny) wanted to have a huge school of neons be a renewable food source for a smaller school of Angels.
I would also like to keep exotic fish. One I find extremely interesting is the baby whale - pic of Pollimyrus Isidori
- I've found a lot of conflicting information about its size, aggression, and tank requirements! That makes me want to keep it and help figure it out.
Another cool accomplishment would be innovating on the affordability, size, ease of installation, and appearance of aquariums. Same goes for indoor/outdoor ponds, or something entirely new!
And then there's the DIY end - I've seen excellent DIY Canisters, and it makes me think that even more can be accomplished.
Of course I have my "dream tanks" with fish, inverts, and plants I want to have, but those are easily accomplished with time, and reasonable, easily acquirable amounts of money. Within the next year I intend to start a riparium, and a 75 gallon semi-aggressive (with small cichlids) tank. This thread is on a different scale :p
You can never get bored in this hobby
That's why I love fish keeping - always so much to learn and experience!
