Other types of puffers....freshwater and brackish, not sure what kinds though because I am afraid that if I start to research, figure out what I want, learn all I can about said puffer I will come home with a tank, accessories and puffer and have to spend the evening setting up, and cloning another tank! :)

More loaches....right now looking for striata's or kubotai....still dreaming of being able to keep clowns alive too! Hubby and I are tossing around the idea of starting our 20 gal for clown loaches and the kuhli's only until the clowns outgrow it...then they will step up into my 64, until they are ready for 100+, because we found some really healthy specimens that came from a different supplier (not a local store) and he has grown several out from his supplier without problems for his show tanks.

I am anxious to get rainbows. Can't wait. I also want panda corey's, more danio's, and pearl and honey gouriami's. The rainbows are tops on my list, tho.

Yes, but instead of coming out of my wazoo, I want them in my tanks. :)
I think these fish are unestimated. No one seems to think they are as great as I do, must be, as no one in the states even mentions them.

i rekon there a gorgeous fish, they re are rather peaceful in the aquarium to ive seen people keep them with guppies up to cichlid

I think your list was rather good Full3r but i would remove some species I allready had and would add snakeheads, arapaima and freshwater rays.

Currently i have a certain dislike for rays as a result in Steve Irwins death, but arapaima and snakeheads id like to have

Any info anyone can give me would be apprecaiated!

10-08-2006, 08:01 PM
LOL congrats i want one soooooooooooooooooooooooooo bad to go with my barra, they usually only eat live food such as crikets, small fish, moths ETC but they will usually only eat also from the surface, another idea is to take the tank water down about 6 inches away from the top of the tank or more to have several branches sticking out of the water and put your crickets moths and other insects of the brackes then the archerfish will shoot a jet of water at the insect and u can see it hunt

how much did it cost? how big? and what else do you keep it with?

10-08-2006, 11:05 PM
Ok well right now its about 1-2 inch and its in the 10 gall with everyone else. Hes being a good boy so far and hasnt gone belly up on me lol. He cost around 7 dollors at Pet Co. OOO and I have a branch acoss the top just for him and put a grasshopper on it but he hasnt eaten........

Hopefully Ill have the 29 running up by christmas
