Diggin seeing you chime in on fish health threads also.
Funny how the long term fishroom keepers are more 'verse' on fish health issues!
Cheers J!
Well done for reading the whole thing, and thanks for saying so!
I do it for me but CHEERS, IM GLAD YOU LIKE MY SHOW. Welcome aboard!
It's all getting a bit crazy but it seems, this is what I do.

11 , it's true. . . (I keep looking at the little babies for sale, I keep thinking 3 more, I keep saying no! Maybe when I build the next fish house, I'll build a new bigger BIG tank and then maybe get some more, rescue ones maybe?)

Fish health,
It falls on those with experience to help those without. I had to learn as I was fed conflicting info from fish stores. It's like this, the more tanks you have, the more issues you deal with, however minor, it all counts!
Actually this is the reason I joined AA, I had the answer to a problem.
Now I've helped a bunch of people, a bunch of people have helped me, I've met some great people, and apart from one or two incidents it has been a good experience, I've learned even more about Fishkeeping.

Fishkeeping is too vast for anyone to know everything!
Together we make a great team.

Cheers, it's almost ready to go in the big tank! See how fast these things grow.
(I will update with pics)

On the "show me your plecs" thread, there is a real nice royal plec. L191.
I'm hoping to acquire one of those but it may be pushing it. . .
(I found some for sale, the end)

Good luck your end. . . (Im waiting for an update on the big Bees fish room!)

Christmas Update!

What a year of fish keeping!
Loads learned, loads to learn. Some fish losses, some still unexplained.
In the diary for the year, on the first page I wrote, 2015 year of the reef!
Ummm, I got snakes instead!
The his and hers collection (that is we decided to get snakes, it's the only non fish pet that we could agree on).
So for the girls, a beautiful corn snake, named nakoma. (Something about Pocahontas) er it was named by a girl, and for the boys, Monty the python!






These are being kept in the fish house. So I'm losing some tanks but gaining these guys! They are pretty cool, and each, unique.
The python is laid back, still hasn't eaten but he's ok I think? Just a phase.
Doesn't mind being handled!
She is quick! Although she settles down after a minute or so after you first pick her up. Very inquisitive! They both love watching the fish!
Somehow I'm gonna video that!

Happy christmas! Happy holidays!

Yeah man!
Like Monty Python! An homage to a great comedy. . . Thing!
Monty is a cool name! Granted it could have a more sinister snakey name but, well, this type of snake is so docile that anything less than a nice name just wouldn't cut it! Really it's placid!


Python regius


Going, going, gone!

I'll tell you something, the corn snake is VERY interested in the fish! She watches them Buenos aires tetra like, whoa! Tongue out! Even the clowns, she watches with no fear! Reminds me of the puffer. . .(the figure 8!)

The python is interested but not in the same way!
I guess they are dinner?
