No wonder my big old goldfish stare at me all the time. There's no telling what part of the spectrum I'm giving off. Really, they stare at me...they are a big freaky and are huge...as my hubs says, "Them's eatin' size" (not bad for a guy originally from NJ, is it? He is a card) Crackingup

Hubby sounds like mine, he keeps staring at my armored catfish on bad weather days. Giggle

When our cat Peepers was still around he used to walk by, shake his head at their size, and call, "Peepers, dinner's ready" Giggle We have a pleco in there too, but he stays in his castle where Daddy can't see him...smart fish. If your fish disappears you'll know who doesn't need feeding for awhile lol!

LOL, my pleco is about a foot long. If the cats eats that, they'll walk funny. Kitty

Wow...that is a big one! My tank is only a 20 gallon one, so my pleco is only about 6 or so? inches long. My goldfish, however, think they are in an outdoor pool and keep growing. We got them as five cent feeders about 3 years ago and they just keep getting bigger . I dreamed one night that they were climbing out of the tank to come get me because they wanted more food:affraid:

LOL

This one was saved from TVA when hubby retired. He was supposed to be dead years ago. He has jumped out of his tank (40 gal) twice and completely dried out to where his skin fell off his fins and tail. Both times, I thought he would be dead. He regenerated fine. Hubby says he cursed now and can't be killed. Know any exorcism rites? affraid

lol!

Cool, lmm. I knew a few of them, but most were an interesting surprise. You reckon this will come in handy playing trivia? Yes
