The Lounge>Any fishkeepers here? Saltwater or freshwater
Silock 04:02 AM 11-16-2011
I'm looking at starting up a saltwater tank. Is there a good fish store in the KC area without driving out to Lawrence?

I blame you asshole. When they die I'm going to have 2 crying little girls call you.

I don't even know what I have. I think 2 angelfish, 1 that looks like a small bluegill(1") and a pink thing I think they said is a glow fish, and then the big fat plattydaddypus.

The kids love it so far. I hope it's not too big of a pain in the ass.

Also, it came with a big ass plattydaddypus or some goofy looking black algae sucker that hangs on the side like a hobo with a sign. It's too big and needs a new home so I can put some shiny little bastards in it.

I am going to drop a couple of deer antlers in it. You'll Swim around that and you'll like it, Nemo.


another aquaintence is trying to sell me a 30 gallon setup already for a hundo, but I'm not sure I'm that dedicated yet.


plecostomous(sp). what a fantastic algae eater. good luck with your now overactive bladder.

Who you callin' an asshole? Asshole. I didn't make the damn thread. :-)

Btw, it sounds like your big fat hobo plattydaddypus is a Common Pleco. If it is, yeah, you had better rehome that guy... and quick! I have one in my 55 gallon and he's already a foot long, (they can reach up to 2').

Edit: Here are a few pics of my Common Pleco so can see if that's what you have in your tank.

i had a pleco in my first tank, was just a little turd. had him about 4 or 5 years, and he was about 18'' (that's what she said). just a great horrific looking fish.
out of the blue he croaked. i purchased another one, and he died within days. no other fish did, so i just decided no more.
got to have the bottom feeders in all setups (insert social joke here).

They are pretty badass. The only problem w/ the Common Pleco is, when you have a planted tank, they uproot everything! It's annoying as all hell placing all the plants back in the gravel just so the li'l bastard can do it again.

wasn't aware of that. i never had live plants. really, all i had was mossy-leafy stuff that floated at the top for hiding/cover for the little fish.

yep, that'd piss me off to no end.

Well, aside from that BS, I can watch that guy for hours, (that's what the guy in the xxx store said). What's really cool is when they blink. The first time I saw that, it freaked me the hell out!

When I had my 2 lb Oscar (guessing... idk he was freakin huge) I think I liked my stinkin plecco even more. When I bought him he was maybe an inch long and only there for the obvious tank cleaning reasons. By the time he died he was easily a foot long and a few inches wide across his head and he actually had personality which I'd never seen in a plecco before. He'd come up and say hi when I feed Oscar. (oh... no algae or crap for me? thanks asshole)

I've heard of people training their Pleco to be fed by hand. I tried that once. He just freaked the hell out and splashed my ass. I chucked an algae wafer at his head, he ducked, then he flipped me the fin. I think he really understands me now.

Not yet. I keep checking Craigslist for a good deal. Just hasn't happened yet.

She likes the "Gonzo-Copter" every now and again. I just try not to hit her with it upside the head. Last time I did that? Knocked her out cold.
