I just bought an albino cat and one of the chinese alge eaters for the tank. The kids love them. My daughters feed them, talk to them, "try" to train them. Best $0.43 per pet I ever spent.
Did you get an albino Cory Cat or a Golden Channel Cat?

I THINK it's the albino cory cat. IIRC, they usually come in a calico type color, or spotted. I had one YEARS ago when I was a kid. He's a cute little bastard. My oldest daughter speaks a little madarin, my wife only speaks four languages which English is one of. She teaches the kids some words here and there so the chinese alge eater has some chinese name that I cannot even pronounce.

I love Cory cats. My Panda Cory is one of my favorite because he is so lively. I'm still looking for a Sterbae Cory though. They're kinda rare.

Lively is right.

This little nut swims around the tank like he has a firecracker in his arse. The alge eater thankfully has some restraint when the cat slams into him (her?).

That looks like the one I used to have years ago. At least the color pattern was the same.

Why are they rare? Expensive?

I have a 10 gallon setup at the moment. (and a 20 or so gallon empty tank in storage)

Only 2 goldfish today and we've had them for at least about 2.5 years. I don't know why, but our fish last a long time it seems. Only had to get "replacement" fish perhaps 3 times in 5-6 years we've had the tank.

They have no names as we never wanted to become too "attached" to them as we did with previous fish. But they are going strong to this day. After these 2 die, we will get some more (and possibly set up the 20 gallon tank) including some of those fish that I don't know their scientific name but are the ones that have bodies plastered against the sides of the tank, slowly chugging along and eating algae here and there. It would help massively on the upkeep of the tank. Those as well as some snails, and other various garden variety fish.

I just can't seem to justify spending that much money on exotic fish.

They usually run for about $15, which is the most expensive Cory i've came across. but i've only ever seen one within the last year.

A Plecostomus. Those are actually some of my favorite fish simply because there are some beautiful ones out there.

Bingo!

Those are the ones I am talking about. They look great and they serve a purpose other than pooping and eating. Cheesy

Watching fish is simply the best way to relax. PERIOD.

I used to plop down in front of the tank when I was younger and I dont care what the hell was wrong, I would drop off while watching them like someone drugged me.

Fish aquariums = uber cool.

 Grin

I just started mine two months ago... But so far its a great hobby, in my tank right now, there is 8 Silver dollars, one very spunky oscar, and a starlight bristle nose, I've yet to see another L183 pleco in my area, and I literally bought the ONLY one they've ever had, and have yet to see more since!

110 Gallon tank
