Bucket list for fish keeping

Are there any fish that you just have to have before you end your hobby?

I will not rest peacefully in my grave unless I keep some pipefish... Doryichthys Martensii in particular, clouded archers (freshwater) and a North Thailand Datnoid (NTT).

I've kept microphis decota. It's a freshwater pipefish and the males are beautiful.

How hard was the upkeep? I almost bought some last summer, but I worried I was too busy to keep the live food up so regretfully held back.

Live food is a must. I advise daphnia or moina. Sponge filter would be best.

Hope you've got an extremely large aquarium for those black tips. Like the National Aquarium in Baltimore.

Like 25,000 gallons . The blacktip reef in Baltimore is amazing, and shows this is an animal best left in the wild or to public aquaria.

Hmmm. Mine would be either arowana or piranha. Since piranha weren't legal in my home state, but they are here because they wouldn't survive in our waters during a winter, they sell them at my LFS. I drool every time I go.

Of course that would mean getting that 400g plexiglass tank I was offered for $200.00 (yes, still in water-holding shape, hardly any scratches) *looks at the hubby*

The Last Fish You'll Want to Keep

Hello All...

Corydoras, no doubt. The hardest working, longest living and best allround fish available for the freshwater water keeper.
