hello there! My name is cassy marks and in from South Australia, Adelaide. I have 2 hoplo catfish (the armoured ones) called Hoppo and Loki. I have 1 sucking catfish as well and his name is Inchy. Im happy to be joining this forum and look forward to learning abt new catfish and learning lots abt the ones i have.
Fish (plecos, cories & loaches) have always been my favorites. If only they could create a fish tank in which every surface is a "bottom," like the amazing invention of the "all edges brownie pan," I would be in heaven!
I suppose this would require a few more leaps & bounds in the realm of physics. Oh well
SO glad this resource is here - infinitely useful & interesting -- THANK YOU!
Would love to find local pleco & cory breeders in CT or the surrounding area (anyone?!?)
I'm located in Los Angeles area of California - around 2 miles from the ocean (can see it from the backyard).
I've been accessing the planet for a couple years now -- a great source of info and specs on the many cats.
I've been interested in plecos since started fish keeping 5 years ago. I started with a fish only tank 5 years ago. I often caught myself gazing at our good-sized sailfin pleco. Either I was hypnotized by his stoic expression or he was communicating to me - "hey, what's up wiht you?"
I've graduated to two planted aquariums 75 and 40 gallons and have joined a planted tank club, Souther California Aquatic Plant Enthusiasts, http://scapeclub.org. I'm more interested in dwarf plecos to add to my 40 gallon tank. I wish there were more sellers of plecos somewhat local to me.
Does anyone else feel odd having a fish shipped hundreds of miles? I think of the little guy or gal being tumbled around in the darkness (maybe its only me).
Glad to be here and looking forward to learning more about these beautiful fish!
Mabuhay! I'm from the Pearl of the Orient Seas, the Philippines (Asia)! But I have been here in Chicago, Illinois for the past 2 years. It is a great pleasure to join PlanetCatfish and learn from the different catfish experts around the world.
