Too many to list. I just bought a dozen gold fish this evening. I think I'm down to four.

I have a breeding pair of snook/trimac hybrids (yeah, I know) that seem to be shooting blanks (no surprise). I also have a breeding pair of midas cichlids. I have the offspring from two spawns in a 35g, and they are dancing like there is another batch on the way. I have a tank full of convicts from a breeding project (trying to get marbled cons). That project is on hold at the moment, but I'm half way there.

I have some flower horns, green terrors, honduran red points, red devils, clown knives, bullhead cats, a raphael cat, myans, jags, a 22" pleco, and several whose names shall not be spoken. And then I have a long list of natives. They live out in the swimming pool.

Thanks. There was a mention in the pet section on Craigslist. Btw, I forgot to call a guy back about a 75g. He wants $50 for it. How do ya say no to that. Hopefully it isn't gone by tomorrow.

Several posts up there is a fish list (I think). I'll go make sure it got posted. It might just be hiding.

Tank wise, I can never keep up with what I have. It is always changing. In my bedroom, I have five tanks: a three stack system called "Tha Bait Shack", a 75g on my dresser, and a turtle tank.

My study room/junk room has a 15g grow out tank for a 4" large mouth bass.

My bathroom has two tanks. A 20g tall hospital tank (breaking down/change of plans), and a 10g grow out for a golden clown knife.

By the front door, I have a 35g cube reef tank. And there is another reef/fish tank by the back door. But that one is a concept tank (an on going experiment). The concept tank is a way to evaluate a silent plumbing technique and an algae turf scrubber.

My current flagship is in the dining room. It is a 250g tank that pretty much takes care of itself. I only have to feed my fish (the way it should be) and clean the filter once a month (or month and a half). (Tha Bait Shack is also maintenance free. It's filter needs changing once every 9 months or so.)

My fry tank is a 30g long that is sitting on the floor in front of my 250g. I don't have a place for it yet. I also have a 25g tall that might go into service as a fry tank. Outside I have a bunch of tanks that are currently unused. I have a breeder system with eight 15g breeder tanks and six ten gallon tanks. There is also a 120g, a 75g, a 55g, and another 30g turtle tank.

In the garage is an empty 360g tank that may get sold. It started life as a freshwater tank, but my brother wanted it to be a native saltwater tank. So I changed out the sump, but now things have changed. We converted the room it is going in to a theater and put in tons of wood work (Victorian era style). The floor is mahogany and we don't want any floods. My 250g has flooded about four times already. I've been working on flood proofing but there is always that chance.

Very nice list! I'm only a few hours away in Lee county! If you want to get a few more Mayans I know where to catch them along with crested gobys in the same spot.

I'll probably be taking you up on that offer soon. A friend wants to go down there to add to his tank. He's actually looking for some larger p-bass, but I'm interested in any of the odd balls (I hear Lake Ida has a population of clown knives). My friend is the person with the 15,000g tank near Ocala.


edit: I'm thinking east coast. I was suppose to go down there to Naples several years ago to go fishing with an old friend. I'll have to look him up and have a fishing party.

I like the color on him. The pictures I have seen of them are always shades of gray.

My friends tank was trucked in and then the house was built around the tank.

His color changes depending on his surroundings, that's his color on white sand with light rocks.
Here he is in a planted tank with white sand and semi light rocks.
Here he is in a planted tank with brown gravel, this was his acclimation tank with a bunch of molly fry to help him acclimate to processed foods.

He was black when I caught him, in brackish water with dark rocks.
That's one of the coolest things about them is how the match their environment!

I would love to have a house built around a tank or 3!

I'm gonna have to get some of those goby's. They are cool.

I added a picture of the tank to my last post while you were writing (two posts up). That was when we were plumbing it in. It's full and running now, but we haven't posted recent pictures due to the well water (avoiding flamers).

LOL, you beat me to the post again.

I'll go look for more pics of the fish. I was out there about two months ago. I took him some oscars and my TSN.
