Whats in your tanks?

Post by rich1988oxford » Fri Mar 02, 2007 12:10 am

Just thought i would post something a bit different and ask everyone what type of fish they are currently keeping, purely to see what fish are popular amongst you guys. Are you purely catfish? Do you like your preditors? Community all the way? Are tank busters your kind of fish? Or are you zebra through and through?.......

Heres mine to get things started

6 zebra plecos
1 scobiancistrus L14
1 royal panaque
2 tiger oscars
1 ornate birchir
1 pike cichlid
1 red dog characin
1 ghost knife
2 humphead geophegus
1 banded leprionis
2 checkerboard discus
1 purivian wolf fish
2 hoplo catfish
5 flag fish
10 black neons
