I wish I didn't kill all the fishes. I'd love to have a tank.

I got some Tanganyikan cichlids today, N. Tretocephalus. They look really nice in the tank, hopefully I can get some pics soon!

One of the Tretocephaluses!


My tank..it's a work in progress! There are just the cichlids, a few white clouds, and one molly in there.

I have a large cold water bog standard tank set up. I don't know size, I think maybe 150 litre (40 gallons?) but I honestly don't know, we bought the tank second hand and I've never measured it!!

We only have 4 fish in it - 2 oranda, one black moor and one ranchu called Quasimodo!!

You may notice one oranda is huuuuuge. We did have 2 that size, but one died awhile ago. That when I added him 2 friends. I bought the ranchu before Xmas... He was alone and I could not walk away. He was skinny and miserable!! He's actually really feisty and brave!



All four



Fat *******!







White fish.



Black moor.





Quasimodo! My only named fish. I love him. And his orange dot!

Gosh, I was cleaning my basement yesterday and found a few old tanks... I want to set another up SO BADLY. I may today and grab some substrate or media from my SO's tank to start cycling it. I miss fish really bad... in highschool my boyfriend and I had 13 tanks... we were doing a lot of breeding and selling and I loved it! Moved to college, a few tanks broke, and I didn't have the time or energy to continue it any longer. I'm going to need to buy another python though! I don't have anything to clean a tank any longer.

He was about as big as Quasimodo when I bought him. Tiny, in a tiny tank. This is his third tank..... I am quite attached to my fish... I don't do much with them, they're very low maintenence. We feed them good food, keep the tank clean and don't keep too many fish at once. Seems to work I'd like the others to get that big.

But then we might need another, bigger tank

Eta - I've had him about 4.5 years

I got...five axolotls. Whoops. I love them.

I've also been mulling over a teensy tiny (4 gallon?) nano-reef orrrr, nano-with-live-rock-and-crabs-and-things, but my electrical outlets may not appreciate. I may also need to save space/electrical outlets for axolotls.
