Oh and crazyklown I already did Siamese fighting fish (from Siam/Thiland) there is not a japanise version as far as I know, umm I could do Koi, but B Scott is really the guy for that - he just wrote a book on them  :laugh:

I'll give it a try though :brow:

which you should get depends on tank size, personal preferance and tankmates, SOTW = FOTW as sharks are fish :huh: ummm with a start like that lmao

ummm yes loads of plecos, armoured catfish and other cats will most likely be suitable, but that is not for this thread, please keep to FOTW suggestions in here, and make up new posts for these compatability Q's :bowdown:

we already have an angelfish one

I will however do the others :thumbup:


to write a FOTW it takes me between 1-2 hours usually as I like to double check my info, and if I'm not that hot on the species I have to undertake some research, sometimes this makes it take longer, but generally I like to release a FOTW each week, hence Fish Of The Week :yaya:

do a pre-teleost evolution series. start with polypterus then paddlefish and sturgeons then gars then amia calva. or do a vertebrate evolution series starting with lampreys and hagfish and move up from there. make everyone smarter! or do these fish that are often found in the aquarium hobby and shouldn't be for various reasons:
Banggai/Kaudern's Cardinal (threatened in nature due to over collection)
Mandarinfish goby (only eat plankton)
Cleaner wrasse (Labroides spp.)
Catalina gobies (cold water species, kept in warm tanks)
Brackish puffers that shouldn't be kept in FW (Tetraodon fluvatilis, T. nigroviridus, etc)
Other brackish fish in general (Scats, mono's, etc)
Hillstream loach, white cloud minnow (coldwater spp that die in tropical temps)

thats all i can think of now.

lol how much info do you think I have :thumbup:

I think I'm going to leave that down to our science guys (my name is not on that forum for a reason)

the idea behind FOTW is to provide profiles of fish people are likely to buy, or keep, it is also to bring these species into the spotlight for a short time and so if you didn't know about them, you now can - lol I am not trying to write up the history of fish, although I would be very interested in it, perhaps I can get acestro or Poly or Frank or even B Scott to do something like this - I know they are way more suited than the amature job I would do.


also I'm a little confused, white cloud minows like fine at tropical temps, hillstream loaches are not brackish, and they can also live in tropical temps :yaya:

i didn't mean to imply that hillstream loaches are brackish, sorry for the confusion, but i previously did some research on white clouds and hillstreams and found that they were cold water, which i figured was the reason that i had 8 white clouds and the loach die in my 80 degree (F) tank. i dont remember where i got that info, but i do remember seeing it.

well some hillstream loaches are tropical, I have kept one myself in a tropical tank, I have also kept white cloud minows in a tropical tank - both with great sucsess  :nod:
