Do they look like the want frozen food or gel food today?
they had pellets yesterday, so I’m trying to figure out what they want today. Perhaps some blanched veggies or something?

I wish they could just tell me what they want...

I never said they should have both, I said they wanted both.

Yep, and no one let me know that work was canceled until I got there. Tha funny thing is that I tried to text my boss and let him know that I was not coming in do to my truck not starting. For some reason I could not text or make a call
So I took my wife's car and was going to have her drop me off. That is when I got the text.

Sounds right! Work doesn't cancel for me. If the rest get cancelled, then i become even more of a necessity. Nice for things like pandemics, not so nice in bad driving conditions.

For some reason they gave me a bunch of pink starburst hardly any reds...

Well that's disappointing, everyone knows red are the best kind. Also you made me want starbursts but we don't have any.

I think calling them silver arowanas is stupid because lots of other species of arowanas can be silver. jardini are silver, blue-black arowanas will lose the black bodies and become silver as they mature, keeping the blue in their fins, an african arowana(which is actually more related to arapaimas, but still called an arowana) can sometimes be silver (although sometimes it's more grey or black), and an asian arowana that just hasn't colored up yet can be silver. really I'd call the silver arowana "orange finned arowana", because while yes, asian arowanas do come in pretty much every color ever, the orange fins are still much more unique towards the species than being silver.

Is this the place for random thoughts?

Here’s mine:
Corydoras catfish look like little dragons.
No, seriously!
“How to Train Your dragon/ Dragons: riders of Berk/ Race to the Edge” episodes are my go-to passive distraction right now when I can’t sleep/ don’t feel well.
After watching several, I put my phone down to try and actually sleep, and for whatever reason started thinking about fish.
For the life of me, I can’t remember what Corys’ faces look like. (I don’t have any yet, still dreaming and saving up.) I can see their bodies, fins, eyes even, but when I try to see their little barbels, visualize the whole fish, I can’t. Instead I see them with the face of either a zippleback or a deadly nadder combined. But squashed onto a Cory cat body.
I haven’t looked up pics yet, so I can still see little dragon-fish.
They're really cute.
Swimming is kinda like flying...

I watched that show too, but I still don't think corydoras look like dragons in any way shape or form.

People say "sa cichlids can only hybridize with their own genus" or "sa cichlids can't hybridize at all". But while yes, they're much less likely to hybridize, dome can, and no, I'm not just talking about that one cichlid that is basically a central american cichlid living in south america(I can't seem to remember the species name). For example an electric blue acara is a hybrid of a regular blue acara, and an electric blue ram. That's why they're smaller, more peaceful, and better in community tanks than a regular blue acara, it's because one they have blue ram in their blood, which is a small, peaceful fish great for community tanks. While they mostly just look like an acara, they also do show some ram in their physical appearance too. Most noticeably the red eye, which from what I've seen online, doesn't happen in regular blue acaras. Their shape is a little different from a regular blue acara too. And there's an example of SA+CA cichlid hybridization too. Convict+Green Terror.

That being said, convict cichlids are VERY good at breeding, I've said it before and I'll say it again, Convict cichlids could probably produce fry with a chair if they wanted to. So I'm not sure if GT can hybridize with other cichlids, or if this is just due to Convict cichlids' ability to breed with anything and everything. So it's now been proven that Green Terrors can make hybrids, Blue acara can make hybrids, and that blue rams can make hybrids (electric blue ram is just a color morph of the regular GBR).

After refreshing my memory with pictures of actual cories, you’re right. They really don’t.
It was just the mental picture my brain came up with, marrying the two images in my mind.

Btw, your reference to Covid after the quarantine question in your bio is hysterical!
It took me an embarrassingly long time after finding this forum to realize that’s not what quarantine refers to- it’s the fish.
When you start learning about aquaria during a pandemic....lol!

I had this random thought yesterday it was what weird food can fish eat. Can they eat natural maybe organic peanut butter, what about cheese or maybe bread
Disclaimer: I would not feed these to my fish even if they were somewhat safe

I spend all day making and receiving calls without a care while at work but then I get home and I can't bring myself to call a store back regarding something important. Anyone else ever feel this way or just me??

Paycheck makes a BIG difference. I am sometimes around thousands at work(up to about 100,000 people)but when i'm not at work, good luck getting me in the same building with 5 people.

Oh Lordie. I used to have two hamsters - one died from cancer, the other died when we were on vacation and our caretaker forgot to put the lid back on, so he escaped, fell into a trash can, and died there. It wasn't the most pleasant smell when we came home. Now I have fish

We have had hamsters. One got too fat for the climbing tubes and got stuck and died while we were gone. The other died somehow. Cats probably had a part to play in that. The leopard gecko still ticking. I just don't want a ferret because i can't deal with the smell. They are fun, though.

I’m wanted a hamster at 7.
my mom told my I could have one when I was ten, if I read up on how to take care of it myself.
Her prayers were answered, and by the time I was ten, I no longer wanted a rodent.
Plan B was that at least I have would have been able to handle most of the care...

Hmmph. I have an inspiration, and my cello is in the bedroom, but my sister is rapping Christmas presents in there so I don’t know what to do. Also, my sister is insane... she is doing her Christmas shopping and it’s not even thanksgiving yet.

Your sister is smart. 2nd year in a row where 95% of my Christmas shopping is already finished. So while y'all are complaining about crowds in stores...or your order is taking forever to ship....these are problems of the mere mortals!! Lol

Saw a car sitting across the highway this morning. Couldn't tell if it was the back end of a deer or a cow that was on the ground in front of it.

Been reading through random posts for the last few weeks... the amount of knowledge and the willingness of members to help each other always leaves me amazed.

I know it's mentioned now and again, but a big thank you to all the members who take the time to share their knowledge and experience with all of us who are new to the wonderful world of being an aquarist.
