What kind of fish do you keep? & would love to keep

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

Just wondering what type of fish people are keeping/breeding and what would you love to keep if you had the time/tank space and of course...money :P

i'll get the ball rolling...........

I'm breeding trilineatus corydoras, mystery snails, long fin bristlenose, cherry shrimp, paradise fish (real pretty) and trying to get successful batches out of my hoplos. I've also got a huge black commet called Jazz that likes to feed out of my hand :)

I would love to keep Green and Orange laser corydoras and crystal red shrimp, and i would love to get another octopus :D

I keep my foundation pair of ebjd (see avatar) and a pair of betta macrostoma (now breeding). I have essentially kept 90% of my dream fish, cutting back now and focussing on planted tanks.

I would love/am aiming to keep a huge school of cardinal tetras, gold tetras, praecox rainbows and thats about it for the moment.

Actually now to think about it a new range of dream fish have arisen since I have taken an interest in marines. I love conspicious angelfish, emperor angelfish, magestic angelfish, fumanchu lionfish, picasso clowns, regal angels, picasso triggers and gosh so many corals. What am I thinking? the list NEVER ends.. :P

I have a few mature L002 (not breeding yet but signs) cherry shrimp, some young L333s and some nice ikola frontosa (still young but going to keep and breed)

Would like to keep some nice shrimp (crs, cbs ect) my next L numbers I purchase will

Be some L134s and of course like most people on here would love to own some L046 ;-)

That's about it for now but things change every day do never know what I'll have next.

Can't think of too much else that I want....maybe a flowerhorn or if they ever were allowed in, The True Green Terror!

A now breeding colony of Ikola Front's Frontosa Ikola Colony - YouTube

A now breeding colony of FIIK's Electric yellow line! :egrin:

A young group of Burundi Front's (for a future colony maybe?) Oct tank update. Fronnies, Ventralis & Yellows - YouTube

A breeding colony of A Dewinti. Stripped my first female today, 35 eggs... Yay!!

O. Ventralis "Chituta" 4M 6F growing out.

C. Foai "Katoto" 3M 2F growing out Cyathopharynx foai "Katoto" - YouTube

B. Tricoti Juvies growing out. :egrin:Benthochromis tricoti juvies - YouTube

Wsh Lst:

L046

L241

L204

L142

C. Foai "Kabogo"

C. Foai "karalani"

O. Boops "Kipilli"

This was a great idea for a thread IMO. I'm always having a "stickybeak" through old threads to see who's who and what they are keeping. Good way to network with others as well, It's through a thread like this I expect to find someone with excess or un-neede A. Dewinti Females they might want to sell me!:egrin:

Again, great idea!
