    Hi guys
    So 34 years after getting my first fish bowl and 2 goldfish, my fish keeping dreams finally came true. I bough Sunshine a 24k gold Asian arowana from @MariaS. 2E81AE4A-FA85-4745-B911-02293E13B90B.jpeg019FD51C-7D99-4436-BABF-C9737B262557.jpeg968582B6-FB26-49E4-A1B7-73D94C862BC5.jpeg
    This has been a dream of mine since 1993.
    Thank you for looking snd thanks again @MariaS for making it possible

    Hahahhaaa.. have you actually been to bed?

    No one can imagine how Mark was like a little kid that has never had a Christmas present..
    I was sad to see her go but my heart went out to him as i knew it was a dream coming true for Mark and for me... the peace of mind of the excellent home she wa going to
    Enjoy her Mark... if anyone deserved this.. you certainly did..

    I was so excited seeing your arowana I failed to notice your frontosa. Absolutely stunning he looks. That's a fish I always wanted to keep
