Multi tank syndrome?


Yes. My current fish would not be friends with an angler.

You can't have just one tank. I have 4 plus a guppy breeding setup and copepod cultures and it's not enough. One tank would be so boring...I vote you set up an angler tank

You're the type of man who passes by sports illustrated and grabs encyclopedia brittanica when you take a dump, huh?

Did someone mention Alto ???
Im GAGA for Alto !!

I'd give you a hug but you might stab me

OMG no goldfish! That's like eating donuts for every meal every day

It isnt too bad, most of the time you feed an angler once every few days. Also just to clarify im not talking bout the big goldfish, just the baby ones at petco next to the minnows.

That was my first impression, mostly because of that huge second dorsal, but the lure looks like a fuzzy ball (although that could very be be attributable to the picture quality) and it appears to have the tail spots indicative of a painted. Idk it's so hard to tell with those pics

I would feed 2 times a week like Mon. & Thurs. or whatever days work for you this fish don't eat that often in the wild hense the reason they got a fishing pole so you have to control yourself from over feeding
Iam not gonna tell ya what you should be feeding yours except don't use goldfish, i dont think the mollies are worth much either, I fed mine peppermint shrimp, damsels, and frozen silversides my next frog if I do, will be on a diet of frozen damsels & live peppermint shrimp

Actually, what I mean is that goldfish contain the enzyme Thiaminase which breaks down Thiamin, aka Vitamin B1. :P
