    I've been thinking lately of fish that I want to have someday... and I figured, what better way to not forget than make a thread about it! Obviously none of them are super rare or highly sought-after, but I haven't been in the hobby for too terribly long, so I don't know about that many fish yet. Some are really pretty common, but I think they look neat. So there! :;smack


    Tiger barbs
    Long fin rosy barbs
    Long fin serpae tetras
    Congo tetras
    Clown loaches
    Pangio kuhli loaches
    Panda cories
    Gold nugget pleco
    German blue rams
    Betta sorority tank (hey, I can dream.. )
    Discus


    Maybe not all in one tank. Feel free to add suggestions!

    I like Angelfish, Discus, BPs, Kerri Tetras and once again not all in the same tank. That is my wish list.

    How could I forget discus!! Thanks AP I'm getting two blue angels for my 55, so that's why they're not on the list.

    Jwebbe, he is definitely being informed of my thoughts Fortunately he likes the tanks too, and isn't just humoring me.

    Nice choice of fish Alot of those will work together in one tank if its big enough.

    I almost bought some panda corys today actually.

    My wish list contains many tetra and cory varities Though I'd really love to add a pair of Apisto Trifisciata to many tank .

    A. trifasciata are pretty, I may be purchasing one from ZeeZ in the future. (Assuming I ever get done using the tank as a quarantine tank...)

    I know some could be kept together, like tiger barbs and congo tetras.

    I've owned them once before but killed them accidently I love the comparision between the male and female.

    Just make sure you do your research on each fish I didn't and then I suffered the consequences unfortunately.. but now i've learned

    Good fish selection there

    I have a blog on a personal site that I write down fish I want and aquascaping ideas for tanks

    I've had blogs in the past, but I never keep up with them. I think this is the longest I've been a member of a community forum-type website... Y'all should be flattered (Just kidding.)

    I never think too much about aquascaping...I don't really do themed tanks. I like mine to look natural, like the fish's habitat. Live plants, rocks, etc. One of my lava rocks has a thick, fuzzy layer of algae, and I like the look. One theme I would do though is a Japanese garden/temple look.. I've always been interested in Japanese culture (taken classes for quite a few years; my apartment is entirely decorated with Japanese knick-knacks and artwork) and I've seen a few pictures of people's tanks that I think look nice.
