Fishies!

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Ok... they're not exactly furry but I guess scaly pictures are allowed here too, right?

Anyone else have any fishy friends?

I love fishies. But they're so hard to take pictures of. Here are my current fishies:

There's Wiggles: (Wiggy for short)


And Kibbles (Kibby for short)


Wiggles got his name from the cute wiggling-style of swimming he has and Kibbles I figured was probably what the cats would like to name the fish.
(plus it rhymes with Wiggles)

Here's the two of them together:


By the way if anyone can spare some tips on how to take pictures of fish that'd be great. I want to avoid using a flash but since they more so much the pictures are almost always blurry.

Now let's see some other fishy friends...

Oh, and here's Wiggles and Kibbles' home:



It approximately 30 gallons and they have a powerful filter and a air pump and bubble wall. They seem pretty happy there. The tank is big for two little goldfish, but they'll grow into it

Here are some more fishies I've had a few years ago. They died about two years ago. I got them from a breeder. Weren't they pretty?

I never gave them names.

Whoa, they were pretty!!!.....So it seems like you are the only fishy owner? Maybe it's because this is a cat site and everybody is afraid their cats would just eat fish...

We have a blue fishy, not sure what kind it is, its John's (or should I say its Harley's friend! ) You can see the fishy a little bit, I can NEVER get a good picture of the fish without Harley getting right up in here
Nosey little devil!

Sometimes he's greenish blue, most of the time he's bright blue!

He's a Chiclid or something like that?! No idea, Harley loves him tho! LOL

I would! Harley spends hours watching them (we have 3 goldfish as well) and he is just mezmorized by them! Keeps him out of my Christmas tree!!

I bet Leo and Gracie would love watching them! I usually get the cute little goldfish at WalMart for like .28 cents! They are cheap entertainment for the kitties and I love them!

Well thank you very much!

Nope, Harley is not a bengal! He's a Tabby, he's just got lots of stripes and spots!

Yeah, I had a really elaborate fish tank at home that my brother inherited when I moved out...it'd be nice to have a couple of fish again. I don't really have anywhere to put as big of an aquairium as I used to have, but there's a nice little open space on my desk for a small one...sadly, no Wal-Mart in Chicago...I'll have to go to PetSmart and get gouged on a 50 cent goldfish instead!

Wonderful pictures of the fish everyone!
I wish I could take pictures that turned out that well of my little finned pets.


this is my gourami
Gumbo



I have several other fish also, but he is the only one who will hold still for a photo.

youre not the only fish owner!

I have this tank:
Unfortunately one of these fishies died, the fat one.



here is teufel guarding the tank


And here is my supposedly algea eater


I have a bigger tank now 64 litres, and 9 white tetras with the one lonely fish I am going to get neons when my tank is set up.
I will take pictures of it then and show you

Awesome fishies!

I love these fishies!
Bradley bought me a saltwater aquarium for our 2-year anniversary in August. Our ultimate goal is to have seahorses, but it takes a while to get everything just right. We were going to add the seahorses when we got back from vacation in Nov., but we got home and everything was dead . We're still not sure what happened. We bought anothef scooter blenny (his name was Campeezi), but he died yesterday . We cannot figure out what is wrong with the water so we're taking it to get tested.
Anyway, here's my aquarium thread: http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/sho...light=seahorse Hopefully I'll have some good stuff to add to it then!

OH no amy! that is so sad!
Do you think that maybe your fishies are actually the sick ones??? not the water??
post #21 of 25
I was wondering if you'd ever got those seahorses, Amy. lShame about the mystery illness.
Wow! I love those fish with the big show off tails!
post #22 of 25

Lioness
Please only get a single male guppy unless you get at least a gallon bowl with a filter

I *had* four angelfish, one algae eater, a two pictus catfish. Then one night I get a frantic call from my nieghobr. Her tank was leaking. So now I have way too many fish in my tank. At least they all get along. It is only a 20 gallon tank, so some of the fish need to move out soon. I have another tank to put my neighbor's fish in, but all of her tank stuff was ruined & I don't have a heater/filter, etc. for the fishies(who all require heated water). I also have Bob(black moor) & Frederica(orange & yellow goldfish). They are in a 2 gallon fishtank I bought in Wal Mart. My neighbor ordered one of those $100 Bio Orb tanks that are really cool! I want one. Her fish should be gone soon, but it is taking longer than anticipated to get her tank due to Christmas rush.

These are my two favorite "fish". lol They are as much fun as the fish in the tank, only they are on the floor & do not require any effort to see! You can see the bottom of Bob & fredrica's tank in the top of the picture!

I have a fish tank too but no ability to take pictures of my fish. I have tried but they never come out right. Right now I have a gold fish name Jeordie and an aglea eater named Fred living in a 10 gallon aquarium. Once I move back home, I'm gonna get Jeordie a friend as I will have access to a 42 gallon tank.

I'd take pictures of the tank except it looks pretty messy. Fred doesn't like the way I place things and will dig out any plant or decoration I place in the tank. I got tired of fighting with him over it and I figures it's his home if he wants the plants to float and the decorations on their side they I 'll let him decorate any way he wants...it doesn't seem to bother Jeordie any.
