Our Flowerhorn Pablo

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
This is a pic of when we first got Pablo Spring of 04. He's in a 70 Gallon tank.

This is Pablo today. He's nearly doubled in size. We had to take the plants out, b/c he would dig them up, and drag them across the tank. He doesn't like anything in his tank except is bridge (his bedroom). He broke a heater today b/c he knocked against the tank so many times, and drags that around the tank too! That goldfish is the last of his dinner he hasn't finished.

Any other fish folks out there in cat world?

Unfortunately he will. We'll be on a "new tank" hunt before next year.

30?? Wow, hats off to you! I had 3 at once, and their were a lot to keep up with. Way more than any of our other tanks. I think it's b/c the bettas don't have water filters, so tank (or rather vase) changes were frequent. I bet they are beautiful!

Both of you have a large fish collection as well!

In addition to our Flower Horn, we also have a 90 gallon community tank that holds
1 albino pleco (HUGH)
2 regular pleco (one HUGE, one med)
1 rope fish
1 danya (sp?)
3 knives (2 regular, one clown)
1 peacock eel
1 HUGE Sanyou goldfish

We also have a 20 gal with 3 yellow african cichlids.

Our Albino pleco was originally in Pablo's tank. We thought it was big enough to handle Pablo, but we were wrong. We was injured within minutes, so we moved him to the community tank. We then tried a small pleco thinking he could hide from Pablo, but he disappeared within that day.
I'll see if I can get any pics up. They're most active during feeding time (100 guppies every couple days)
