What is his crime? Did he eat your shrimp? Bully other fish?

My roommate says I'll die by giant turtle.

Ahaha. I love it. Pretty little tank, too

"Aquariums are like science, art, and hypno-therapy, all rolled into one," I insisted.
"You're not putting a hundred gallon tank in the living room," my roommate replied.


10g "Community" of nothing but Danios - 2g (barely) planted Betta - 2.5g Betta - 1g Pond Snail Repository

My aquascape style tends towards 'tall in the back, short in the front, lots and lots of green and stuff. And maybe a rock somewhere...'

I find that works real well with cichlids. They seem to have a pretty good memory after being penned in a net for an hour or so. Not sure how much long term memory a barb has, though.
