hi - i am REALLY not sure what catagory to put this under but ... has any one ever heard of a squirrelfish? its a caribeaan fish .. i have never heard of one until at a school picture for a fish project - can they be kept as pets? Miley
Yes i've heard of and seen them in my lfs.My book says they are shy shoaling fish that hang around under caves and are mainly nocturnal feeders. They have large eyes to aid with night vision and they are predatory. They feed on crustaceans and small fish and are part of the holocentrid family...
This is taken from The Interper Q and A manual of the marine aquarium.
thanks. thats my goal for when i am older - i want to get a huge 1000 gallon tank in my house and have like a ton of fish!!! especially bala sharks!!! and i would like to have sqiurrelfish too! its a long shot but, why not? Miley
oh i know i want 2 huge tanks one saltwater and one freskwater! i really love fish! its my goal to have huge tanks - would a betta be able to like live happily with bala sharks and other fish in a 1,000 gallon or is that way too big for a betta? Miley
haha they have such a playful nature! Marmaduke swims up and down just desperate for attention - my mum calls him a tart cos he knows how handsome he is and he uses his looks to get all the attention he wants ;D
that is too cute! my sisters betta isn't all that funny cause she doesn't do anything with him but Oscar goes wild and i am trying to train him to jump out of the water - if the possible - i think it would be cute! Miley
oh that is just too cute!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oscar like hides in his little cave and i will go to the top of the tank and say Oscie! and he will come out of his cave up to the top of the water!! its cute!! . Miley
Thanks! I am down to only 3 fish now - i had to get rid of one damsel because he was just SO extremely vicious but he went to a friend who has a HUGE tank and he's in the process of getting a custom made bow front - he's a lawyer so he can afford it hehe.
And I lost a clown - it jumped into the box that holds the powerhead attached to the protein skimmer so he was mushed :'( poor little guy!
So i've got the damsel, the valentini puffer and the clown. I'm hoping on tuesday to go buy some green chromis from the new lfs and another clown to keep mine company. This clown uses the marine cualpera as an anenome - its very cute!
