    Jeff, I know they're surface feeders but, I reckon you'll wake up one morning and that little fishy down the bottom will be gone.

    Re: Show Us Your Aquarium Fish....Past & Present

    Hi,

    We have a few marine fish which has been going good for 18 months now. we do / did have Nemo, Marlin and Dory - there's a few however's;

    1) Dory grew too large too quick so we swapped her for an Dwarf Angel who's stayed smallish and settled in..

    2) Nemo and Marlin had kids, or keep having kids (none have survived) although to ensure my Son grows up normal, as Nemo and Marlin are depicted as father and son we actually have Nemo and his Wife....

    3) Nemo and Marlin have become protective of their environment so bite me when I clean the tank. I just wish their friends in the bay would bite my bl--dy lines....

    Gidday Thanks for the kind words, The tank isnt as grubby as it looks, I'll have too give it a clean and have a sit down with the camera one night,

    I'm not sure how old the jack is, Ive had him for about a year now, And he was 6-8 months old when we got him, Same with sara the saratoga,

    They were brought up together when they were under 2" long and in a 12foot tank, Aparently thats why they dont fight, I originaly just wanted the jack, But the chap i got them off wouldnt sell one with out the other because it was a 'first' for him too see them both together in the tank, I had a 6" mary river cod, But he didnt last the night,

    They dont fight _much_ but sara is definatly the boss!! Untill live food is in the tank! If you dump 10 gold fish, Jack gets 9, 8 if he's slow!, EVIL! fish, Expencive 40 secounds! I've just started feeding them potty mullet and hardy heads! They love them!!!

    very interesting, so teh guy you got them off already had them in together from a juvinile stage?

    Saratoga Jardini's are the meanest fish out of the Saratoga's and Arowana, they are always the bada$$ of the tank doesnt matter which tank mates you have, and having a Jar in with the jack just confirms my point.

    very interesting mix, what tank do you have planned for the future?

    Yeah its bad when t hey 'fight' is when the jack try's too stand his ground, He's much quicker then the toga!,
    Yeah, The guy i got them off had them together since day dot, in a huge 12ft tank! Was impressive

    Aparently they killed everything else in the tank bar the gibbi pleco's,

    Im not sure about future tanks, Ive had american cichlids, a big barra, Then *HEAPS* of africans in a very nice setup, These are easy and fun, I'm not sick of them yet, The jack is like a dog, He comes upto the glass when you talk too him!, I'm not sure what i'll do if they out grow the 6x2.5x2,

    Kinda,
    They are bada$$ in the respect that the toga picks on the jack, But add feeder fish and the jack is the one that makes the water boil,

    If the house was on fire an i could only take 1 fish with me i'd take the jack!

    Someone gave them the barra because it outgrew there tank, They didnt want it, was about 20cm long, Not big enough too put into the 'big barra' pond! Have you seen the size of them badboys!!

    Ive got a long term family friend that has worked there for the last 13? years,

    Re: Show Us Your Aquarium Fish....Past & Present

    oh ok, i was getting worryed cause i put my barras there and i was like arggg there gonna sell em!, but its all good now ive calmed down lol. They should be able to hold there own i think, they were a bit bigger than the ones in the little billabong.

    And yer theres some big brutes in there aye, i swear they have a 6ft one or bigger in there , but she always hides up the back!

    would that family friend be Clint?

    Yeah Kev I know

    The tank looked too bare when sara was small, so put in creek natives to crowd it up a bit. I expect them to get eaten

    One of the highlights of my day is when I get up in the morning and count the small fish!
    I get excited when there's one missing!!!!!
