Hi there! So it's been almost 20 years since I was last in the hobby. Back then the responsibilities involved were annoying, but now they are a pleasure. Funny how that happens Another thing I have noticed are the incredible personalities of my fish that I had never seen before. Specifically my Juvenile Angelfish, and Cory Cats. It began with the Corydoras. I bought one Sterbai unaware of their fondness to have other Corys around. He was purchased for utilitarian reasons. He was going to be my beautiful custodial engineer. I introduced him to his new home, and didn't give it much thought. Though it was quickly apparent that Andi was the life of the party! She was playful, active, and every tankmate got along... eh hem... swimmingly with her. This lead me to further research about Corys, and I found what most of y'all know, which is they like to be in groups of 3 or more. Sterbai were out of season, and difficult to find, so I substituted Julli Cats. After their QT I transfered them to Andi's tank. They bonded IMMEDIATELY! It was as if they were long lost family! We couldn't stop watching them carry on. Just so beautiful. A couple months later I started building my 55 gallon. I bought 2 Brazillian Wild Blue Glitter Angelfish from Angelmania.net. I received them less than a week ago, and I can't be happier with them! When I'm aquascaping, or cleaning the tank they come right up to my arm and swim around unafraid. As if they're just amused by this huge pink animal. I turn on the light when I wake up, and see them sleeping at the bottom with their eyes closed. I didn't even know they could close their eyes! I have 2 cats (As in feline, not catfish), which is how I came back to the hobby. I gave them a 5 gallon tank with 3 fish to watch for Christmas. That was nice, but the 55 gallon? They will sit for 2 hours straight just gazing at the bubbles and fish doing their things. They're good cats that mostly just watch. They sometimes sit up with their feet on the glass, but the fish are never scared. My Angels, however, actually interact with my cats! They swim up to the glass where they sit gazing. My male cat has put his paw up to touch the glass next to them, and the Angels get even closer to inspect his paw! These little guys enjoy watching my Cherry Barbs chase each other around, and seem to cheer on my Corys as they play in the wall of bubbles in the back corner. Now I know I'm projecting human traits on my fish, but regardless this is the first time I have opened my eyes to this world of Pisces personality. It's a really cool thing to see. So I'm wondering what you all have experienced. What fish have given you as much as you have given them? Was there a particular fish that will always swim within your heart? Please tell me! I'm pretty stoked to have found this side of our hobby!
