Fish tank

Not sure where to put this but who here has a fish tank? I bought one from the local head policeman in part because I wanted to discover more about Giant Gourami but also as a sort of get out of jail insurance card. :p

Anyway we tried to capture a baby Giant Gourami but that’s almost as hard as catching an adult one. In the meantime I have a Dwarf Gourami who has gone insane. It’s a male and I plan to introduce four females so he can have a harem, but the fish shop hasn’t had any new fish since lockdown started.

There were some other fish, which actually spawned and then died and were eaten by this fellow...

Prior to introducing the sucker catfish I did have a healthy buzzer (chironomid) population after collecting lake water, however the sucker catfish put an end to that.

I haven’t tried angling for them yet.

Cheers, Paul
It's an exploration; bring a flyrod.
