    LOL

    I justified getting them because the gene that makes them fluoresce came from corals.
    I found them fitting...

    Dave, you're funny!
    Do keep in mind - fish for me are an entertainment device for my cat more than anything so glowfish are about her more than me! :poke:

    I'm still leaning towards the glowfish and the fancy guppies.
    Haven't done anything yet and likely won't until the end of September. I kinda have a lot going on in August and September. Maybe it will be a birthday present to myself.

    You guys are great - this is such a wonderful forum - I knew you'd have the answer (ad nauseum! LOL!)

    I'm a fan of tiger barbs myself, and I think you and your cat might be too! If you get a small school of them (I've even mixed the red, green, and albinos in the past w/o problems) they'll chase eachother around incessantly, and probably stare down the cat if it's peeking into the tank. They don't get along w/ All kinds of fish though if you mix them w/ other kinds, so just keep that in mind and don't put something w/ extra frilly fins in w/ them...they may not 'play' nicely :)

    Seeing that there is competition for a fish, why not a pirhanna? Would keep the cat out of the tank?:evil::evil::evil:

    actually that seems like a perfectly acceptable rationalization to me!

    Anyone who ever met me would agree that I'm just a very responsible big child! :p (But Glow fish!??!)
