No aquarium, got a pond though with some Koi carp and goldfish...theyre a bit frisky at the minute, the goldfish generally have babies at this time of year, very few of which make it to maturity as the rest of the fish eat them, a few make it through each year though, as they stay black until they're about 3 years old I can never see them until they are about 2 inches long. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I used to have a small pike in an aquarium as a student at the Institute for Biology. It was a beautiful fish, much nicer than the regular goldfish. The only problem was getting it food. I raided quite a few experiments for zebra-fish. When the zebras were getting scarce, I started feeding it cichlids in stead. Unfortunately one of the cichlids was too big, and my pike choked.

After that I stuck to terrariums with scorpions and avicularian spiders.

Had a preying mantis a few summers ago in a big glass jar. Used to fed it grasshoppers I bought from a pet store (meant for green tree frogs). It lived well into the winter, when all its outdoor cousins had already shuffled off. It was almost 15cm long by the end.

Nasty killing machine it was *shudder*

I have several aquariums. Don't know the answer to your question but, many places "aquarium plants" which are land plants that will survive under-water for a time and then die. To have a true "planted tank" takes some careful planning and a lot of expensive lighting.

Do you have a plant light bulb? I have the same plant you do, and it wouldn't go very much till I got the bulb. The need more than sporadic light.

In my kids room they have black mollys, some kind of tetras, and neons.

My fish tank has 3 Crapie, 2 are right at 12 inchs and the other is 5 inchs now, caught him last week when I took the kids fishing.
