37 Gallon Update #3: Sterbii Cory Cats Added!

I have been looking for SOMETHING to put in with the tiger barbs. Something that could survive their onslaught basically. So, mostly some sort of bottom feeder they would leave alone. I saw some cool ass looking, bulking Sterbii Cory Cats and added 5 of those dudes in.

So far so good. They are active and cool looking. Here is a pic (not my fish) off the web of them…

Keeping my fingers crossed that the barbs leave them alone…


February 2015 Fish Picture of the Month



This is a Pike Cichlid of some sort. I can’t keep the different pike cichlids straight.

I have always wanted one, but they get kind of aggressive and decent sized so I just never have.

90 Gallon Update #16: Where Did My Albino Sen Go???

Short and sweet update today…

I have no idea where my Albino Sen went? I figured it was hiding.. but fish don’t hide for a week. Then I assumed it must have jumped but I can’t find a corpse. It is too big to be swallowed by any of the fish so….

Da fuck?

My only guess now is that it jumped and my dog ate it? Other than that, I have nothing?

Poop. 20+ bucks down the drain and I don’t know why. Not to mention I can’t find these guys that easy. Damnit Damnit Damnit.

2014 Shadow Awards!

Welcome to the 4th annual Shadow Awards!

This is where I rate the best of the best and the worst of the worst on various topics, mostly about movies of course. Once again, I can only rate what I have seen… so you won’t see some sappy ass shitty movie on here, but you will see Captain America.

The only movies mentioned that are not out of DVD yet are The Hobbit 3. There are some Hobbit spoilers and they are in RED so you can avoid them if you want.

And here… we… go!

90 Gallon Update #11: Electric Blue Acara Added!


I almost got an Electric Blue Acara before. But was disuaded by the staff at the store because they said they were essentially, “mini green terrors.” My brother had one back in the day and while it held its own, I didn’t recall it being some bezerker killer.

So, after watching the Firemouth constantly harrass everyone, I just thought, “fuck it this fish looks awesome” and pulled the trigger. I put the fish in, expecting the worse (blood bath of some sort).

Instead… the exact opposite happened. It is like I hit the “aggression perfect balance.” My tank instantly turned into paradise. It really makes no sense. The acara didn’t go in and beat the living shit out of everyone to calm them down. There was no battle for territory. As soon as the fish released… everyone just chilled.

We will see if this keeps up but… if so… AWESOME! I am really liking my tank right now and really, I am done with cichlids for the tank. There are plenty. I just need to find my bichirs and maybe add some school fish.
