A Largemouth Bass with anything, except a Gar.

Everything else is food.

Neon dwarf blue gourami. Freakishly aggressive and mean. Cleared a community tank in 5 minutes! No joke!

Never ever put a Midas Cichlid and Oscar in a 20 gallon tank together! The Midas picked on my Oscar so bad until the Oscar jumped out of the tank and landed on the floor. I quickly scooped him up and put him in the tank but all he did was swim perfectly upside down in circles until he died.

Early on in my aquaria hobby I learned that it's not wise to allow an African Dwarf frog to hang out in my fry tank. It QUICKLY became a species only tank and it wasn't platy fry.

Native crayfish (mine was 5 inches) and plants. I love the little guy......but they waste no time in grasping a stem and ripping it up for the hell of it.

In college....so no aquariums for a while.....

When I was a kid I tried to breed betas in a 1 gal gold fish bowl. The pair mated and the fry hatched. Then I didn't know what to do next (Al Gore had not invented the Internet yet), so I just bought some fry food in a tube. Well I kept the bowl in my bathroom which got too cold in the winter and after about 2-3 days all the fry were dead
