I am anxious to see them. Embarrassing for the past president of the Worcester, MA Aquarium Society to say, but what is a Rotkeil severum? Severums are just about my favorite SA Cichlid.

We could do that, but I would need a few replacements!

Everyone has a 'pond' or two. Just depends on how they use it!

we have several of these tanks, all picked up in various states of (dis)repair at auction sales---no slate bottoms unfortunately. Had one as a kid, bound in brass, with cute little feet. As I recall it was about 15 gal., but that was a long time ago.

I keep him well fed on tilapia fillets,raw jumbo shrimp and he even eats pellets. He tried to take my finger the other when I was moving some driftwood.

I have a 300 gallon pond in the back yard, Just got it filled and has been cycling a couple of weeks.

 

The season up here is short so I winter my goldfish inside.

 

I had 25 cent feeders that had grown to 10" over the space of 3 years. got so big I had to give them away.

 

I'll be picking up a half dozen or so feeders in the next week or so.
