:pinch:

I guess it'd help to know that they were a type of catfish, i think, but i forget now.

As long as its not 40 Oscars,how can there be a problem? Give us something nice... how's little Thor doing?


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

Yeah, probably just 40 common plecos or red tailed cats. 60 gallons will hold them just fine, nothing to worry about at all . . . . . :whistle:

I was looking at the fish at one of the big pet stores when I overheard a person asking an employee, "I have a 10 gallon tank. How many fish can I put in it?" The employee answered, "You can have 1 inch of fish for every gallon." :dry:

In another store there's a sign that states aquariums should have 20% of the water changed every three weeks. :ohmy:

Oh the things I hear from "Oscar owners" who come in makes me sick :sick:

But my little Thor is doing great! I've changed up his food and feeding schedule/amount and he is eating a lot better. I was over feeding apparntly :whistle: oopsies. I'm still on the hunt for some slate to add to his tank. He keeps clearing a spot and then hiding the spot with fake plants so Id love to get some slate for him to 'play' with.

Yeah that whole one inch of fish per gallon, :pinch: . People ask me if that's true, I say "Sure! With neons or guppies MAYBE but that's it!."

Or! When someone says "I have a 5 gallon, how many alage eaters do I need!? 5 right!?"
