Here is my male veiltail betta fish, Heatwave. He lives with 1 oto cat and 2 ghost shrimp. I got him 4 months ago, but I don’t know his exact age, but somewhere between 12-16 months . He lives in a 2.6 gallon fluval tank TEMPORARILY. He is getting upgraded to a 29 gallon tank in about a month.

This is my Tetraodon schoutedeni/spotted congo puffer, hanging around in the water sprite roots in his temporary 10 gallon tank, until he is upgraded to my (soon to be finished) West African 155, maybe with others of his species one day.

One of my favorite kinds of puffer fish, and like most puffers, one of the best personality fish I've ever owned. He enjoys cruising on the substrate, mostly until he sees me or knows it's feeding time, then he's all over the place (he actually spins around the tweezers and things during tank maintenance).

He found himself in my care when I saw him at my LFS for a cheaper price than most other places, and since I was already considering keeping one at the time, I decided to bring him home.
(thank you LFS for only having one in stock otherwise I would be out of money 🤣)

Anyway, I hope you find him to be as stunning and beautiful as I do

This is my red tail giant gourami... The gourami.

Screenshot_20211204-172558~2.png


I bought him in 2016, about the size of a betta. He had been kept in a 10 gallon for almost a year and was stunted and unhealthy. I started him in a 30 gallon, them moved from that to a 90, then 140, and now 210. He eats peas, various fruits, assorted vegetables likes cilantro, worms, and pellets. He's currently around 18" long and 3" wide (will adjust when I get home). He lives with Central American cichlids as they're the only group of fish he's tolerated long-term. He's the boss of the tank.

If I walk past my bedroom he starts swimming into the front of the tank excitedly and is always on the lookout for me. Interestingly enough, he's also scared of me since I moved him to the 210. If I'm not feeding the tank while working on/around it, he ducks away and hides. Sometimes he riles up the other fish doing this and suddenly everyone is flying around panicked.

I'll be adding the piece of paper picture once I get home!

Here's my "MOO" My Only One brackish water fish. A gift from a friend of mine 1 year ago.

This is my brackish water fish I don’t know what species it belongs to. This fish was a birthday gift to me from a friend of mine last December 25, 2020. As you can see in the picture, I placed it on a small tank so that I can take a picture. I added this fish to my community tank which is also found in the picture. I feed it with commercial floating pellets. Last year, the size of it is almost 1 centimeter in length, now, it is 5 centimeters.

I just got one of my bucket list fish today, a hoplias malabaricus aka the common wolf fish. It’s still a little guy, probably around 4” but it’s already eating like a champ. These guy get around 17-20”mostly eat other characins and smaller cichlids in the wild. He’s in a 55g temporarily, a tank that I was using to hold my feeder Molly’s, so he’s gonna have a supply of food for a few weeks but I’ll get him trained on shrimp, tilapia and silversides and maybe pellets down the road and get him either a 4x2x2 or a 6x2x2 depending on his activity level

:fish:Hi, I am Desiree, and this is my Rummy Nose Tetra named Stripe, he lives in a 5-gallon tank with two neon tetras and two dwarf frogs🐸.

I got my first dwarf frog on Oct 30, 2021, then on Oct 32, 2021 I got my second dwarf frog and my three tetras, two neon and one Rummy Nose, Stripe was the only Rummy Nose tetra in the neon tetra tank.

Stripe is very kind and never causes a fight, he is also the most scared one of them all, but no matter his personality I will💕love him, always.

He eats Vitality & color flakes bc that's what the guy at big Al's said to buy, he will also have a bit of dried blood worms every day, since my dwarf frogs eat that too.

Buying him and his friends has been my best purchase this year!!! :fish:
