Aquarium update

These are the guys in my aquarium. This month I lost a couple of fish, a Catfish (also called a shark in most pet stores) and a dwarf Gaurami. I'm not sure what happened coz I'm very careful in taking care of things in my aquarium. One morning I noticed the catfish had some kind of growth on its side and then died the next day. The Gaurami's death was kind of unexpected, I came home from work and found it lying dead on the floor of the aquarium. Both of them were flushed down the toilet after I payed my er... respects :D

Forgive me for my ignorance about the scientific names of these fish.

Gold fish


Silver shark



Suckermouth catfish

Oh yes....can understand the feel, Mat. Infact, I stopped with the 'fish-keeping'.....(cudn't find another word for it)....when 2 of our fav cute goldfishes...'kuku' and 'akku'....(tats wat my dau named them)....died.

I still remem the tears in her eyes, when they were flushed down the drain....(of course, after the ....errr.....last rites).

In this line of hobby, u will hav to deal with such issues n also shud hav a heart of stone, to do the 'flushing'.

Good luck.

Btw....I like the interior deco of ur aquarium. Nice.

What happens when you go on leave? Who feeds the fish?

Jonyboy: thanks
Mario: Usually I get a cousin or neighbor to feed them while I'm on vacation.
