Hi! I'm Prism. (or sam. hehe)


I live in Texas! Along with Fanatic, I don't plan to have a big break for christmas.
I get random breaks anytime of the year, (i'm homeschooled hehe).

My favorite thing about aquariums, and mostly any animals you keep in a tank is aquascaping/landscaping.
I am really quiet good at it! I asked for an aquascaping kit for christmas, haha.

I love gaming, and keeping animals.
Soon going to be adopting some guinea pigs!

A big step in my hobby.


for more information
(I am also @fanatics brother) lol

Hi Mary! My name is Grace but you can call me Sera, my nickname.

I’m also 16, I live in California in West USA and am a high school student!
I keep mostly oranda goldfish, but I also have rarer types of goldfish such as Tosakins, along with the occasional Dwarf cichlid. I currently have a 10 g, 5 g, 80 g, and 2 30 gallons, but the number of tanks I have changes based on whether I am breeding my fish or not.

Thank you! I get my pictures through lots and lots of practice, studying s, and observing animal behavior.

But getting back to fish, what kind of guppies do you keep?

I'm only keeping the common "wild" type right know while I educate myself on all their characteristics and care first hand. Hoping to eventually start breeding characteristics though, or keep some more specialised species at least!!

I have a friend who I just discovered is looking to get rid of some of their fry, and it just so happens so am I, so we are planning on doing a fry trade to get some new colours and genes into our bloodlines. My fry are orange bodied with (male only) red stripes and a red tail. His guppies are ice white bodied with black tails. I think we could get some interesting crosses out of the two and seeing as both of our species are bred true, it will be easier to create and select the best fry for breeding!

That sounds cool! I’ve never had a real interest in livebearers, but I do love colorful guppies. Have you seen dumbo guppies? Really love those guys.

Is there a “grooming” process for guppies? For goldfish, things like food, amount of protein, and the size of their tank can have a great effect on their shape, size, and color. Just wondering if there is something like that for other fish as well.

Of course I have!! They are gorgeous <3 but my favourite types are the ones which look almost marbled, and are kinda a mix of a lot of different colours perfectly blended together. Like these guys! I aspire to breed guppies to that level one day!!!



I wouldn't say grooming per say, but a bigger tank and vetter food means healthier and more vibrant guppies (but these effect will change if the tank or good changes, and can get worse again)

I went to Tenerife! The most perfect weather I have ever experienced, an awesome species of lizard too (and plenty of beautiful birds!!)

I stayed in the Hotel Botanico and visited Loro Parke (so many cute birds!) And Siam park (So much fun!!)

If you could help me somehow, that would be great!!







Sounds like you are both busy and having lots of fun!

My dad absolutely LOVES geckos and I don't blame him, they are just the cutest little guys...
Oh yeah hahaha I live in Tenerife!
I know, there are lizards everywhere hahaha. Is siam park that fun? I have never been there. But I think I'll be going this summer! When you come here again, bring some guppies hahahaa just kidding
