You mean a pleco? Those are terrible. Get a large african Cat. I have been breeding a red belly parahna school, african cichlids, and have a south american show tank. I have the good prices and varities if anyone would like to try some non homo fish. I am willing to separate with them if you have the right homes.

Wise1 get on craigslist and check for tanks. Theres crazy deals in there, also see if you have underground auctions from aquaruim society clubs. Go big..............go natural as possible. Its a great thing to get into. I have been maintaining tanks for about ten years. I have worked at the Steinheart aquaruim, nippons, and the marine science institute. If you need any advise just let me know. I have never posted pics on here but, maybe this weekend? :o

ok update time, thanks for the comments

 

i bought the following today

 

SEMI AGGRESIVE TANK:

-6 tiger barbs

-2 dwar puffers ( they kick ass)

 

COMMUNITY TANK:

-2 guarmis

-2 platy's (male and female = baby's)

-2 guppies (male and female= babys)

 

ok here are some updated pics...

 

here is tobey just chillin on the driftwood

Picture811762482.jpg

here is speedy, lucky to get a pick while he was searching for flakes

Picture811762497.jpg

good ol' small tiger barbs, wanna raise em' up to be champs, they are already kinda fighting eachother though, chasing and headbutting, plus nibling, but there is six of them, so hopefully that is enough to keep them occupied from the two puffers...

Picture811762523.jpg

here are my guarmi's... they are pretty nice colored

Picture811762537.jpg

Picture811762541.jpg

 

and my two favorite additions are my puffers, they are sooo kick ass, love em alot, although i have a male and a female, the male is just chilling on the bottom, doing nothing most of the time looking dead, i read that your tank should be completely cycled before adding these fellows or else it can kill them...... so hopefully they will be ok.

heheh as i type my little female puffer is trying to take on tobey, tobey is a huge snail and will only get bigger, he is probably 4X-6X the size of the puffer fish.... but i dont know i heard the puffers can do some mean stuff and take down fish 5X their size ;)

 

i plan on buying a 10 gal. tank tomorow and setting it up for a cycle with biospira, which automaticaly does the cycle as soon as it is mixed with the water, and i plan on having a tank full of DP's dwarf puffers, and i want to have them breed, and make fry, whom which i will by another tank for..... since they are eazy to take care of it should be a blast, tomorow i plan on spending another few hundred dollars on some more stuff including a breeding snail tank to feed my puffers....

yeah i was really lookin into them, i was about to buy two of em', the green spotted, and the figure 8, yeah i almost bought them, but they are expensive online, like about 8 bucks a piece, but 30 bucks to ship.... so its 50$ just for two of em', so i will get them in the future, but not now, becuase they are brackish, which means they can grow up in freshwater, but they will need slightly salted water when their older, did you have yours in tropical water??

nice set up. nice pictures.

what camera are you using?

 

i have the nikon 4600 coolpix, it kicks ass has 4.0 mega pixels, 3X optical zoom, and a huge freakind digital zoom, and its small, really small, best camera ever, trust me i looked into it, and its the best...

Open Question: what would it for a beginners setup do you think, fresh not salt.

 

yeah go with freshwater, saltwater is 20$ a gallon... so a 80 tank would cost you 1600$ atleast, plus more for matenence each day......

 

freshwater is much cheaper and easier to take care of... if you really want to get into it and want help, which you will need check out... http://www.fishforums.net we will all hook you up there, and just check out your local petsmart for some great help...

 

I'm getting jellous

Man no offense but, your tanks are very artifical lookin first of all. Second your fish are not agressive. Check cichlidforum.com. It's kool if you a just starting and are in to the hole guppy and barb things. The real show tanks are about the natural aquascapeing. Which means everything from the gravel/sand, rocks, driftwood, boulders, food diet, background, lighting, to the species in the comunity of the tank. I hope I did not shit on your parade but those castles, fake plants, and colored gravel just ...................are generic and gay.

 

I really am not trying to call you out. I think you should read up on the lakes, rivers, and oceans that are available for export. There is a so much kool shit out there that most " pet shops" sleep on.

Good luck on the tanks and education that comes with it. ;)
