    Now I know this isn't quite the same as user name but just a question. Why did you pic that avatar you have?
    *not sure if I should ask for a picture of your avatar attached since it's possible to change it*

    I picked mine because if I used my real photo everyone would know I drink martinis! lol.....

    Actually, I use my avatar pic because it is funny! It is my 4 year old Granddaughter photoshopped...I used to have it on my desk at work and EVERYONE who came in laughed their booty off ..

    Mine is a sexy shrimp that I used to have when I kept a Biocube 8 nano reef. They basically walk around in the tank and wiggle their back end (very funny to watch) so I got the idea for the caption.

    I picked mine because its a beautiful fish. A friend who imports discus brought this fish in a few months ago with his other stock. Its quite possibly one of the nicest i've seen and a monster show grade fish.

    Mine is a picture of my first convict and her mate. It's been fun to watch her grow up and she's special to me.

    I'm not Red, but I picked mine because I just LOVE this picture! I took it at an LFS and I call it "Cabbage Patch Puffer". Anyone who has seen a Cabbage Patch Doll knows what I mean!

    ((long time no see, FL!))

    I made my avatar on photoshop, using the blue bar above forum posts for the color. That way, my avatar matches the forum.

    I picked the design to match my username-- it's not exactly a minnow, but I like it.

    Mine kind of speaks for it's self. I was trying to set up a 10g but my cat had other ideas. lol

    He was a stray we took in. The most beautiful fluffy white cat with one slightly crossed eye. He was a lovable momma's boy and would answer when called. Unfortunatly, he passed at the young age of 5 a few years ago from lung and heart problems.
    I still miss him and can't bear to change my avatar.
    Now I have a lump in my throat. :-\
    Sorry, didn't mean to bring down the thread.

    Next!!

    <hugs> Lucy.
    I know the feeling. I had Coolie for an avatar for awhile in memory of him. He's now on my profile instead.

    My avatar is the carcinoid cancer awareness ribbon.

    Any cancer awareness organizations or charities have a soft spot in my heart, but I chose carcinoid cancer specifically because I was diagnosed with it last July.

    Hugs to Lucy and mathas...
    Mines is my first betta Mars (who now lives at my boyfriend's house). I quite like the pic. I've got better ones since, but my computer's a bit rubbish and it would take too long to change!

    Mine is Oswald the Octopus. I love cephalopodes and feel a big blue friendly octopus with a tiny little hat fits me well. Or something like that.

    And my sig picture is a drawing done by Pink of my puffer, Captain Clack. :)
