A Parrot of the Sea by woxys A Parrot of the Sea by woxys
You might already know I love ZOO Olomouc - but last time I got very excited as I found out it now keeps my favorite fish species, mandarin fish!

(no desc today, too tired, sorry)

May I use one of your photos as a reference for a drawing? I have nothing specific planned, and may indeed not end up using any, but I feel I should ask and see what your opinion is before letting the idea run free in the first place. :) The colors on this one really caught my eye, though.

That's my favorite fish species too! They are hard to keep, though, because they typically will only eat live food.

Anyway, good job on the photo! :)

They eat tiny tiny tiny little sea creatures that you can't see. Can't for the life of me remember their names.

I had a friend who owned one and he got his salt water direct from the ocean - but was also quite lucky as his also ate store bought pellets after about a year or so.

Aren't they just beautiful?!

Oh, they are so beautiful! Your friend was lucky! I did also once have a male who started eating store bought food after a short period, but I think he was unusual. My others (I used to have 7 aquariums before I moved) only would pick small creatures from the rocks in the tank, or eat live food that I cultured at home for them.

I'd love to have a saltwater tank (In fact I have one that could be converted into one with weir and sump all included) but I found that the hassle of it was just too much!

RO water, mixing salt. Getting rid of the salt water for water changes (can't just tip it out the window!) was a huge pain. Not to mention the need for auto top ups too. Headaches all round!

Yes, it is a pain! That's why I used to have seven aquariums, but now have only one saltwater tank and one freshwater tank. I'll probably find a new home for my last saltwater tank the next time I move.

Yep, freshwater's way easier. What kind of fish do you keep? I'm tempted to give my hand a try at Discus (with a ph of 8.0! Lets see how quickly /that/ goes belly up!)
