    I used to have 4 tanks, 30g, 50, 55 and 125. Mostly South American fish mainly cats. THe coolest fish I had where the Motoro Stingrays a male/female pair, about a 9-10" disc.

    I have one beta....one empty tank.... do you have your beta's all in the same tank...I thought they have to be in seperate tanks....otherwise they'de kill eachother...It will cost you $300.00 to get a few more fish and stuff they need? Here it'd cost about $10.00.... IF you allready had the tanks.
    I love fish!

    Nice tank and beautifull Frisbees. Discus tanks especially the bigs ones look cool.

    Have you tried to breed them?

    No Miko lives in a 1 gallon, Rainbow lives in a one gallon, and Risteek lives in a 10 gallon all to himself. All of my betTas lives seperate. BetTas is spelt with 2 T's btw. "Beta" is the second letter of the greek alphabet.

    Well I would need a 30 gallon tank. That will cost alot but I already have one ;D the filter, areater, dechlorinater, fish, gravel, plants, decore, it all turns out to be ALOT of money. And I would only beable to have 2 goldfish. They would have to be "fancy goldfish". Goldfish need ALOT od room

    Nice tank, kazkirk!

    I have a 20 gallon tank filled with fish, aswell as 3 male bettas. I'm hoping to get a 4th betta soon, but I want a turquoise or emerald one and they're extremely hard to find...

    Ooh Kaz I want Discus. Nice tank!

    I am fishless at the moment :( For years I bred African Cichlids (not sure if I want to do that again - they were neat fish but so aggressive!) Last count before we sold all the tanks:

    55. gal (pseudotropheus kenyii)
    55 gal (tropheus duboisi)
    75 gal (labeotropheus fuelleborni and trewavase)
    80 gal (tropheus moorii, wild-caught fish)
    125 gal (duboisi and kenyii - easily my favorite tank, those fish looked so cool)
    250 gal (our "display" tank. we had several species coexisting in this one)

    I also had about 5 10-20 gallon tanks set up for the growing fry (cichlids are cannibalistic little monsters, especially my kenyii. If they fry would fit in the dominant male's mouth, they'd get eaten.

    Oh, and I had a 30 gal for my corys and plecos, since I found out that the cichlids (all but the duboisi who were pretty peaceful) would eat them.

    I've been wanting another medium-sized tank, maybe later this year I'll set one up.

    I am CRAZY... INSANE... WACKO about fish. LOL.
    I participate on multiple forums and my room looks like an aquarium.
    If anyone ever wants a fishy question answered or wants to know some good information and sites, PM me anytime.
    Blue Dog, I have kept several betta's and would like some more. I am leaning more towards Crowntails.

    I have a 20 gallon fresh water tank of my own that is planted. In it I have 2 Blue Flame tetras, 1 fish who's species name I just forgot (durrrr), a male red and turquoise long fin betta, 1 Butterfly Loach, a couple of snails (they hitch hiked in on our last planting), and 3 shrimp. I'm thinking about getting a green puffer, and maybe a frog...

    My boyfriend is the true fanatic though... he's planning a salt water tank in the near future once he moves into his new apartment in the fall. He has the tanks a 40gallon tank with a 35gallon refugium (i believe that's what it's called). He wants to have mostly soft corals, and only a few fish. He'd love to have a species tank that supports either sea horses or star fishes, but that's further on down the road. His favorite forum is Saltwaterfish.com

    My favorite forum of ALL TIME is www.fishtanksandponds.com.
    They are so knowledgable there and there is a huge amount of information.
    Mojozen, I would love to get a puffer as well, but can't spare another tank. They just get so aggressive and the fact that they demand the right pH is kind of annoying. Maybe in the future for me. You know that you would have to get them a species (the puffers) tank right?

    Blue Dog, I used to trust the LFS, but then learned better, LOL. Actually, it amazes me when I go in and am just browsing and I hear the employees telling people the wrong information!

    Have I ever heard of Pet Fish? Err... I have them. LOL. No, I am kidding. What do you mean by 'Pet Fish'?

    Possibly. It's not a crown tail (the ragged tailed ones) ... I just know it as a long finned? *shrugs* To be honest, I love my betta (MooShoo) and my butterfly Loach (Monarch) but I am not the fish person -- that's my boyfriend. He's the one who does the live plant upkeep... :)
