Here are some pic's
And the Garra's
You have some nice fishes there. You said that you had planned for small but ended up going big and I can clearly see that, but you big fishes look nice and healthy, so well done. However, I cannot make out on the pic what those Garra's are. They look like they really love you!
Thank you for the compliment, they are part of the family
The Garra's are the Garra Rufa what they call the doctor fish or other name Redish log sucker I use them on my skin for
the skin condition called Psoriasis
I have seen the tanks and I find it hard to believe that @Willem ever planned to go small - lol!
I tend to agree with you on your statement - lol
I had two massive oscars, never again! Barbarians they are, I had to feed each oscar seperatly otherwise one of them would get all of the food, my poor fingers. How they will recover I dont know, the floor was always wet under the tank after feeding time. How big is yours?
Ag no man Vissie,
You guys just can't take the punch of big fishes. I mean Oscars are actually tiny. You should rather go to the Amazon and get yourself a true gaint, Arapaima gigas (belongs to the gourami family, believe it or not).
Ja - saw Arapaima gigas while visiting Singapore Aquarium .. wow - huge.
Hi Willem, How is the pangasius doing ?
Prof, comes from a man whos favorite fish is a discus! Totally opposites of the oscar haha
What a tiny fish! That one doesn't look like family of the gourami at all! What about two pirannas, I see one guy is selling them on gumtree, whats the chance of getting a piranna in bloemfontein! If anyone is interested I could go and have a look for you to confirm they are indeed pirannas.
Sorry to answer on your behalf @Willem but @Vissie, the Oscars are a good 28cm or so and look really good. It is nice to see large Oscars in a more than large enough tank. @gdt78 Your old pangasius looks really well with no marks on it whatsoever - usually large pangasius have a few battle wounds from bumping themselves.
@DarylA thanks for your reply(answers) @Vissie yes mine are used to feed together they each go to there own places when I feed them and so use to me I can stroke them when I feed them. @Dirk Bellstedt yes prof nice fish that but my plan is to get the pangasius to round about that size aswell,................ but about the wooden tank I let you in on it next year.....!!!!!!
Here are some more of my smaller one's
And this is why I have to build the wood tank.
This is one of the tanks that will be up for grabs (1408L)
will post more pics and prices during the week
