No inside fish, but I do have a backyard fish pond. Its about 40'x15'x3'. It has largemouth bass, redear sunfish, gambusia, and brown bullheads. I'm in California so they do alright in the winter. The pond usually only freezes over for a few days in the winter, and not at all this winter.

Plenty of bulletin boards available for fish fans.

I am also into fish. I only have one tank now
a 135 gallon community tank. I am not into all that wet/dry filter crap*, I use an undergravel filter with two powerheads. I use a python to change water once a month, and have not had any sick fish for several years. Normally I have scats and mono's (brackish water fish)

I have a couple of tanks, a 10 and 55 gallon with an Oscar for each one. My big fish is a couple of years old and she is about 12 inches long. My little fish is about a year old and he is a runt compared to the other one. I like the Oscars because they have personality. My big one likes to play "Free Willey" and jump out of the water to take food from your fingers. It is great to trick unsuspecting children into feeding her.

I've been keeping/breeding Discus for the last couple of years. I have about 15 tanks at present, most of which are breeding and grow out tanks. Yeah, I used to keep Oscars to,they have to be one of the most entertaining critters there are for a fish.We've also got two ponds in the back yard with Koi,goldfish,and a 30" albino catfish named "BUBBA".

Standard her is a pic of a red oscar, they come in many different colors. They are normally about the size of a quater when you buy them in the store. they are beautiful when small but they grow very very fast. As they get lareger they obtain their own personality. Most large fish can not be kept with other fish, especially smaller ones. (lunch). They can be easily trained to do tricks. They can even reconize their owner, (feeder).

Thanks Ross! I've always thought about getting an aquarium but fish just seem to boring to me.. I like catching them better.. If I ever get an aquarium it won't be fish that'll go in there, more likely a boa constricter.. hehehe.

Her name is Rusty, named after my mother in laws weiner dog. She is about 2 years old, so pretty close to full grown. She is a tiger striped Oscar. A friend has a red Oscar and it is a lot thicker from bottom to top (Taller????) and MEAN!!!!! She bit him on the finger hard enough to make it bleed. I was afraid that my wife's cat would bother the fish. but he is afraid of it.

I have had aquariums for 12 years now, I just broke down my 55 gal reef tank because I moved and didnt have time to keep up on it. I did reset up another 55 gal but it's freshwater (less time needed). I bought a 55 gal reef ready tank so I could still use my wet dry and the metal halids. If any of you have a salt water set up I have a custom built (professonal built, not home made) proten skimmer that is a 48x6" reaction chamber with a 10x6 collection cup that I want to get rid of, If your interested let me know.

I had a little 20 gallon (long) tank for years (fresh water tropical fish), but got sick of cleaning it all the time, so I eventually sold it. However, I still like Pink Floyd, one of my all time favorite fish... er... I mean... bands.

For those of us into fish, I found a fish forum that is really really good. The forum looks just like Cliff's. In fact I think they copied it.
