I'd pet him and all that stuff. He was a very cool fish....nearly as big as a softball....and knew I wouldn't hurt him. It was nothing to stick a hand in and he'd come over and I'd pet him. Why is everyone looking at me like that?

True...all of it'* true. Fish are great because they are quiet when you want them to be, they don't hassle you if you're busy and they don't make a mess of the place.

That is so cool. A lot of times most people don't know how intellegent a fish can be. For that matter, I think most pet'* intellegence goes un-noticed to most people.

I had a Tilapia Butterkoferi (sp) which is a very intellegent fish, from Africa, and it usually kills anything in it'* tank. This fish would bite your finger if you stuck it in the tank, but I was able to touch him, and hand feed him. Believe it or not, when I'd feed him, he'd come to the top, and stay there with his mouth open, and out of the water, and I'd drop his food in his mouth. If someone else tried, they'd get bit. My friend Ed spent some time at my house, and he got to be familiar with my fish, and he too was able to hand feed him in time.

I am mostly into African Cichlids, but I like some ordinary community fish as well. I breed Tropheus Moori Chipimbi at the moment. I have one tank that has some very pricey wild caught Chipimbi as well. I have one female, and 3 males. It'* tought to get the wild caught to breed. Typically, these do well in a harem, but I have to opposite. My female and her mate have attempted breeding on at least 2 occasions, but haven't been successful yet.

I also have some Tropheus Duboisi as well. I think they are the Maswa'* (Blue face/White stripe) They are still young, and not ready fopr breeding yet.

Right now we have four cats, but in the past we have had turtles, a 7-foot Black Rat Snake named Snidely Whiplash, hermit crabs, gerbils, fish, Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches, a raccoon named Mischief, and a parade of more temporary pets like garter, brown, ring-neck, and milk snakes, baby possums, ducklings, goslings, any number of insectd of varying interest, frogs, toads, salamanders, crawdads, fence-lizards(Five-Line Skinks), baby chipmunks and squirrels, etc..., but never a dog, thank god.

Our most populous moment was 6 cats, 3 gerbils, 3 hermit crabs, Snidely the black-rat snake, Mike the box turtle, and several fish.
