    So I'm thinking while I'm laid up all broken I will spend my time in other ways then getting drunk and falling off my bike and breaking bones. So I got to thinking about getting a fish tank for the house and hooking it up with some crazy tropical fish and what now. Thing is I know nothing so I come here.

    Who has a fish tank, I'm not talking anything crazy huge just somthing standard size, with some wild fish to put in it, what's the price range on the tanks and accsesories for it, stuff like that.

    Make sure you don't get fish that will kill each other.

    i dont no if u have a wallmart in your town but u can get a 55 gal. for about $170.00. which is good for fish that will get an alright size.

    if you can get yourself an octapus ..some are meant to be as smart as dogs
     
  14. ^Yeah... if I had the money and patience to run a saltwater aquarium I'd get a sickass octopus with a quickness.

    But saltwater is a HUGE pain in the ass to take care of, and the margins of error are very slim.

    If you want to have some fun times with freshwater, get an Oscar or a Black Convict and a few smaller inexpensive fish. Watch him ruin the shit out of everything else in a few weeks.

    maintaining a saltwater aquarium is not that hard it just comes down to your laziness

    the money part is def a pain but it all matters on what type of setup you want. the problem when you start browsing the saltwater section only to realize how much more you want everything in the fucking ocean.

    once you get a saltwater aquarium up its a prolonged enjoyment because shit grows like creatures you didn't realize existed in the tank, while in freshwater its just some new algae you hate seeing.
