Some new pictures from the tanks

Fish pictures to the right: I was finally able to get a good picture of the newer little guppies only one of which is visible in the picture. They're very fast and were completely translucent for the first week and a half.

Next is a good shot of the puffers together, Julio & Miu. Both of which are very smart and interesting fish who seem to have a lot of personality but are also very reserved and seem to stay on the opposite side of the tank a lot of the time. It should be interesting to follow these two and see what develops with them, I have to admit I was never sure about getting them but now that we have them they've already proven to be some of our most distinct and fascinating fish.

Below the puffers is a good shot of the high fin tetra's which are incredibly camera shy and seem to make it a point to be skittish and hide whenever anyone approaches the tank. Thus I can never seem to get a good picture of them as my camera is rather slow on the draw.

Momo is on the left with the two loaches, which is rather funny considering we’re fairly certain she ate the other two!

Below is the silver tipped sharks just a really good picture of them that I didn’t know I got with the camera.

Below the sharks is a funny shot of Sid staring at this new creature that was just dropped into the tank debating if he should eat him or not or even how to handle this situation. We went and added ghost shrimp to the tanks, Sid obviously had no idea what to do with him so he watched him and followed the shrimp for over 2 hours.

Some better pictures of my fish

These are some pictures of the other fish in the 35 gallon.

The first one is one of the Loaches we have 4. Without a doubt they’re some of my favorite fish to watch. Its really neat watching them come out at night and swim in a group of four in the currents.

The second is my favorite goldfish, Pav who’s actually a dwarf Blackmoore and has remained the same size since I bought him almost 8 months ago.

The next one is Maria who only continues to get bigger and bigger. And is probably the single biggest cause of my frequent water changes to keep the Ammonia level down. Her and Zoie (the other goldfish) are by far the most veracious eaters of all the fish in the tank.

And the last one is Momo my boyfriend’s favorite catfish by far. She’s also quite the personality and will come out during the day or at night and look for food, wait for her mate, or have fun swimming in circles amongst the current. She loves her head that you can see in some of the pictures and often won’t budge even when you trying to remove her. She always a lot of fun to watch and also acts as my first indicator telling me when its time to do a water change as her colors will turn more pale.
