    Amazing Matt! No second bedroom, it’s TINY! I have 6 tanks taking most of the apt. I’m lucky to have an understanding wife! We are also contemplating a big move so I’m holding off new tanks for now. Maybe just one

    Just moved them from a 46 gallon bow front to a 125 with some new tank mates. The first tank is beautiful but was getting too small for five growing discus. I am hoping to get a pair from the group.

    Thanks for the links and the additional information. I think the tank I am planning is just about right for these guys. We will see if the dealer gets them in some time in the next couple of weeks.

    There was a chap by the name of “Aspects” on the Practical Fishkeeping forum (currently offline) who kept a large shoal of these successfully, again it was down to excellent over-filtration and over-crowding but, he stated that he had few problems doing it that way.

    They are a beautiful looking fish, one of my lfs’s had some in recently but, they weren’t kept properly and now there’s a only a few stragglers being kept in sump tanks.

    There’s a Google cached page offering some information available but, it may well change in the near future:

    There’s some video footage of Aspects’ shoal here:

    Behavior: If you do decide to keep these guys, get a large bunch. They fare fine in schools or as single specimens. Don’t be tempted to mix them with other mean fishes. We seen these guys back larger piranhas (which can be sissies) into a corner. Your exodon will take center stage and wreak havoc on most other tank mates.

    Apparently they also eat each other if not well fed and don’t breed. They sound like fun

    I hope you all enjoy the season in whatever way you enjoy your life. Mostly I hope you are happy and at peace within your own being. Have a great time being with family and enjoy all that life has to offer you.

    Finally enjoy your fishy friends. I hope 2010 is a great year for everyone in their hobby and personal pursuits.

    I use a linear pump to run about 20 tanks with sponge filters. I plumb the air through pvc pipe that has valves installed in it to adjust the air output to each tank. So for a central air pump you have several choices. You could drill the tanks and plumb the to a central filter and use a water pump to run and filter the tanks too. Many options.

    Lots to consider but a fun project either way.

    Great pics.

    Just a quick question how do you run and filter all your tanks??

    I want to add more tanks but cost is scaring me

    I run sponge filters in smaller tanks powered by a central pump. the largest tanks have sump filters and the rest have powerfilters of one kind or another and sponge filters too.

    With 25 to 30 tanks it does take so time to maintain it all but i love it.

    I actually don’t think they’re suitable for aquaria given the ridiculous adult size…

    they are ridiculously big but I hope to keep up with the growth with a 3 or 4 foot wide tank eventually after the 240 gets too small for the big guys I have. I will do my best to keep them happy.

    I’d like to see some more of those Crenicichla. *licks lips*

    How is this?

    I actually have 4 of the venezuelan pikes in this partucular tank. I think only one might be female they are in the foot or so range and over a year in my possession. I got them at about 3 or 4 inches.

    I have about 25 going right now. Most are fairly large but I have kind of a variety of tanks and fish.

    Hey Jack

    Lovely photographs.

    How many tanks/aquaria do you care for?

    Regards David

    I keep several freshwater turtles and enjoy them very much. I have some albino red ear sliders, yellow bellied slider and pink bellied side necks and I guess a couple map turtles too. Very nice compliment for the fish hobby.

    This is my first experience with Turtles. I am very impressed by what Mother Nature has done with the intricate designs and colours. It is still very nervous but it will soon have some friends to play with.
    The shot from above I caught while it was sunbathing under the heat lamp.

    I think I might have a baby in one of my tanks. Saw this strange cat with a big mouth in the local fish store and bought it. Was maybe 3 inches a month and a half ago and now is close to 10 inches.

    Jack

    Have a more common baby giraffe cat I just got too:

    Best regards,
