you are so right about kids being expensive....little rascals better not send me to the nursing home when I'm old...
You'd still have your kids to take pictures of though. I would've went with the camera any day.

Love your kids. Just hope that one day, they'll return the favor and let you live with them and their family.

BTW I got 8 roselines the other day

They're still babies so I've still got time to get a decent sized tank set up for 'em.

I've also gotta get a prosumer cam myself so I can do decent macros of my critters. Big tank first, then the camera. If I had little kids like you do, then I'd get the camera. I regret I didn't take very many pictures of them as they grew up. Especially videos. I've got none of them

Never argue with a fool. Onlookers often can't tell the difference.
Growing older is mandatory, growing up is optional.
My advice is free and worth every penny.

Roselines are def some fun fish to keep. They will thank you for a bigger tank. If only mine stayed small, I would've kept them.

I take a ton of kids video using my iPhone since it's so convenient. I cant even imagine having kids when folks use to carry around VHS cam corders... nobody would want to take videos of their kids. I wouldn't blame them lol.

Angels should be called pig fish. Everytime I come near the tank they swarm to the front and start gulping at the top for food. Makes it hard to take pics too, always shoving their mugs in the lens.

I'm hoping a 6' long tank will do it for 'em.
Problem with prosumer DSLR cams is they are a drag to have hanging around your neck all day. A decent P&S will make it easier to carry it around all day for any kid photo opps, but suck for macro shots of critters and things.

Angels are surprisingly hard to get to pose. You just have to take a bazzillion shots and get a few good ones. Mine is a pig too, but my 3 SAEs will push him out of the way every time until they've had the first several gulps of food LOL. He still ends up getting more than his share eventually. It doesn't matter how fast I am. I get splashed almost every time I drop in some food.

haha Good eye indeed. It was given to me by a fellow SFBAAPS member. Hopefully I'll be able to get a nice little grouping soon to form a bush back there.

I fed them NLS pellets, freeze dried bloodworms, and frozen blackworms.
