Our beautiful prince Sailfin Pleco!! He's very shy / skittish when it comes to people! You can sit across the room and if he notices you talking about or staring at him he'll run for cover. ( One time I was sitting across the room watching him and all I whispered was "Beautiful babyyy.. Sucky fish~" he glanced over and RAN! haha ) We're trying to get him more comfortable to us in hopes to one day hand feed him. ( HE LOVES CUCUMBERS but he'll only eat the centers? )
This big dummy is so entertaining to watch. He loves the moss ball in the tank! He'll push it around like he's playing soccer and uses it for cover to hide.
LOOK AT HOW TINY HE USE TO BE!!!! Seems crazy.. and he's grown since the compared picture too...
BEAUTIFUL BIG MOMMA BICHIR ( we got her the same time as the pleco ) I absolutely adore her! She's so tough and isn't scared of anyone or anything!! She'll swim right up to the glass and stare you down then zoom off and thrash around to show just how tough she is!
I think she's grown to like me quite a lot ( I think she came to realize I feed her haha ) I even find her waiting for me when I get home from work and she'll follow my fingers / movements.
*x-files music plays in the distance*
LOOK AT THIS PREOSTORIC STRIPED MONSTER I mean.. Catfish..
We got him later on. He's fearless ( I would be too if I was as sharp as he is! ) He normally tucks himself into a crook and snoozes but man.. when he's up he zooms around the tank like a little ufo or jet fighter. Strangely he's a complete cuddle bug with the other fish and very vocal! ( I swear yesterday he cried when the pleco stopped sleepy cuddling with him haha ) He's known to gorge on snails ( suck 'em right out of the shells ) until his belly is bloated. Thankfully his belly goes down within a day or two.
And not pictured we also have a Pictus Catfish.
He's such a shiny silver with beautiful markings, but he's the ultimate baby.. Scared of his own shadow so I can never get a decent picture if him. ( we got him at the same time as the striped )
LOOK AT HOW JEALOUS SHE IS THAT I'M PAYING MORE ATTENTION TO HIM
( she just loves being the center of attention )
SOME VIDS :
I'm sorry for the spam I just really love my fish!!!! They're all so different and wonderful I just wanna share them with everyone!
