Hi there mylotters, I am wondering how many of you have fish tanks and what you have in them. We recently set ours back up again. Its got all the goodies decorated in it, and air bubbles. But this time just to start it up we decided on gold fish. They are so funny. They actually swim all around like they are in a park and the air bubbles are a ride for them. They dart into them and it takes them up, then they dart out. Watching them is so soothing and fun. What kind of fish do you have and what do you like most about your tank and fish?

Hi ladygator, my son enjoyed watching fish swimming in the tank during his childhood. We then purchased a rectangular tank to keep some peacock fish in it. The little fish with different colors looked really funny and attractive. They moved agile and fast in and out of the aquatic plants as well as the rare stones. My boy was keen to feed the adorable fish once he was back from school. He could stay for an hour or more just watching at the lovely small creatures to have fun swimming freely in the crystal clear water Peacock is fish that breeds very fast.Each time it gave birth to young fish in great quantity. We had to separate the young ones by putting them into a smaller tank to avoid the adult fish from eating them. Placing A tank of fish in the corner of the sitting room would make the environment rather lively and decent Happy posting

This sounds like a childhood experience. He will remember this when he is older as comforts of his childhood. My grandfather always had a fish tank with silver dollar fish and angelfish. I still love the sound of the bubbles in tank and the soothing color of lights when it turns night.

Yeah, my son had learned a lot about the habit as well as the way of living of different spices of fish by watching them every now and then during his childhood. And this will be a sweet remembrance for him when getting older for sure. Sometimes we do chat about this cheerfully whenever we come across any fish tank outside. Yeah, your words here do make me to recall the familiar situation of bubbles popping up continuously and the elegant movement of the greenish aquatic in the tank. We miss the lovely sound made by the bubbles in the tank as well. Thanks very much for the BR Wishing you a happy and prosperous brand new year of 2010

I would LOVE a fish pond in my front yard. I think that would be so great!! I have wanted one, but our yard is not really set up for that. They say that gold fish are the best for that, but if its not warm all year you will need someplace for them to stay when its cold.

I have one in the living room. Its quite big and only have one fish in it. Aruwana that is. Its big now and with us for almost 6 years already. It already grows to about two feet in length and eat a lot of roaches. It doesn't like clean water so I don't put any decorations it it aside from few rocks and the air pump.

wow, I am going to have to look this fish up. I have not heard of a roach eating fish. Where do you get the roaches that you feed him from?

well i too have a fish tank and its a 20 gallon tank. its not as big as i would like but its better then nothing. i first started out with a small tank like one of those starter tanks, then i upgraded to a 10 gallon. it took me a while to learn how to take care of the fish and what things to do and not to do. it was bad when i kill 5 of my fish just by putting then in a different fish tank while i was cleaning the other one. now i got the whole tank cleaning down to a science. in my 20 gallon fish tank i have about 5 fish in it. 2 Common Goldfish, 1 Three spot gourami, 2 Plecostomus, Pleco. then in my 10 gallon i have 2 catfish not sure what kind, and then 1 gold fish. i think its fun and cool to have a fish tank.
