just a bit of fun to get the fishy peeps going....i used to keep fish in a pretty big way! i had a main 6ft tank and had 3 4ft tanks and 2 3ft tanks and one 2 ft tank, i mostly kept and bred malawis and tanganyikans (tropheus duboisi) but my ALL time favourite was my tilapia butterkofferi! awesome fish who in the end had to be kept alone in the 6ft set up...but soooo much character! would literally attack me through the glass, and lets just say that any in tank maintinance was fun!! :lol2::lol2: when i have the room for another 5-6ft tank i will DEFFINATELY get another one :mf_dribble:

I used to keep Oscars... They were my fave, I got three lil white tigers they had them listed as from the pet store for 10 dollars for all 3... They were barely 4 inches when I got them and 2 years later they were closer to 16 inches... Unfortunately when I moved, I decided to sell them, I got 40 dollars for each one though, so 110 dollars profit, lol... A few years later though I got a couple of black tigers instead, but they never got anywhere near as impressive as the whites...

I have two severums one a golden and is fully grown, roughly 12 years old we call him Boris. He plays peekaboo and is happy to watch TV but loves sitting next to someone. We got a green severum a little while ago which we named pixel and he was very cautious and shy but now full of character also.
I have never owned any other large fish except plecs so i guess i am a bit biased.

Apistogramma are really nice, i had borelli for a while...
I think you always tend to go for your first 'proper' fish, so i'll go for Firemouth Cichlids. t. meeki

I don't keep fish anymore, but I had a couple of large tanks once.
I loved oscars from the first day I saw them. Never could get them to breed though. Wrong kind of water.
Then got a pair of synspilums. I couldn't get them to stop breeding!

I also had an abino clarius catfish, who was a bit of a character, and a osphrenemus gourami. I wanted an electric catfish, but wasn't allowed.
