    Fish keepers?

    I have four aquariums, although I'm actually not as serious about them as I once was. Do any of you keep fish tanks?

    Here are two of mine. Forgive me I'm not much of a photographer and I'm also on dial up so that makes picture loading/sizes difficult (unless I load them from work...hehe).

    The second picture you can see one of them at the very bottom right, just barely.

    The top tank doesn't have any fish -- it's a freshwater shrimp tank...and the shrimp are very small (about a 1/2 inch).

    Pretty fish, Pinki. You need some pink ones.

    I haven't had fish or any other pets since I was a child. Wish I could, but I travel too much to take care of them.

    Thanks 2 Blue! It is a lot of work...especially since I use the bucket water change method still and the 55 gallon especially, and I change a lot of water every week (about 30 to 50 percent every week plus 2 gallons a night for the 55 gallon). I have a 95 wide that I need to set up for the occupants in the 55 gallon soon, but I just keep putting it off...

    Nice tanks Pinki! We have four currently up and running...a 95 gallon tank, a 65 gallon tank, a 29 gallon tank, and 20 gallon tank. We're fish crazy out here.

    Those are some good-looking fish! Your home must look like the set for The Little Mermaid!


    Some of them look big enough to serve as an emergency food supply as well!

    Thanks! And some of them are!! I'll have to get pictures of the goldfish. He was a 12 cent feeder fish that has taken over my giant tank. And the oscar (the black and red one) is about 12 inches long.

    Eventually we will try a tank again. The first two times we managed to kill exactly all the fish we had. Rather quickly I might add.

    I suppose that's better than killing more than just the fish you had...

    When I saw the title "Fish Keepers"', being a cop, I immediately thought this would be about something that stopped your fish from sliding around on your belt!
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.
