Some of my fish just would not cooperate for this, my oscar in particular.
I take great care in sourcing my fish, and hand pick them - i'm curious as to anyone's opinions on the quality of the fish themselves, see if i'm doing it right or not.
Also, some would find it strange but I have a very, very aggressive angel that I had to rehome with the oscar.. and they are best friends. Been in together about a month and the angel actually bites the oscar every now and again over food, it's hilarious and a totally unlikely pair.
Anyway, without further delay;
Gold spotted female bristlenose
My very, very peaceful EBJD. Praying he(she?) survives. Lost one already.
Super aggressive nasty blue acara .. I might actually have to rehome him. All my other SA cichlids are very peaceful including the other blue acara I have. This one is a freak. Beautiful though
These guys certainly live up to their name, couldn't get them to sit still for the shot. I've trained them to come to the top for food, which is a blast to watch.
This severum will literally follow my hand in the tank, poke around anything that I move, brush against me etc. Not afraid in the least, and doesn't get spooked when the rest of the tank does. Really growing on me.
My all bark no bite firemouth. He loves squaring off against the other fish and then taking off , fighting the glass, and goes absolutely ballistic at feeding time. Couldn't get a good pic.. he has fantastic colors.
A very hard to get (and crappy) shot of my l202 tiger pleco. She only comes out in pitch black, and instantly takes off with any motion or light.
My absolute all time favorite fish - bettas. They were biting my hand and camera while I was taking this. Huge jumpers. Cute, but i've lost some that way =(
A general shot of my clowns and desison barbs (roseline sharks)
And last but not least, everyone's favorite. Fred the Oscar, who would absolutely not cooperate for the photoshoot. Best personality of any fish i've ever owned. Last one is him sleeping, swear to god. Every night he sleeps like that and I think he's dead.
