One of my 11" wild oscars. This is the female(the more photogenic) of the pair, they are my current pride and joy of all of my fish for several reasons. After a poweroutage that killed out almost all of my hundreds of fish, I bought them on a whim from somebody I knew online, and I doubt if it werent for these oscars I would have continued fishkeeping. They charmed me right away, and I think they have turned out to be some fairly decent looking specimines. They greet me as soon as I hit my bedroom door, they splash water at me if I don't pay them enough attention, which is why my glass is always spotted. Laughing

This is a bad quality picture and it is very small, BUT it is my biggest pride!

It's my first ever fry of Trichopsis pumila



When they swim out of their nest they are 2 mm long at the maximum. This is a size my camera couldn't show decently anymore.... But you can still see it there on the pic and you can even see the eye. Although in real they are much much smaller. Laughing

Bad pic, but the biggest pride. Smile

Unfortunately also not a great photo - my camera has a big problem with its macro setting.

Anyway, this little betta is my pride and joy at the moment, because since I bought him just over a month ago, his tail has grown by over 1cm. The black butterfly edge was barely 1mm long when I got him, and now look at it Very Happy

I would have to say my 40g tank. As a first attempt at live plants it has been incredibly rewarding and fun. I do feel both pride and joy.

At the moment, my juveniles Kois are my pride and joy. See: one year and five months after the birth. After a lot of work, a lot of surprises, a lot of happiness and mainly a lot of learning. Very Happy


Topic: more information about this Koi breeding

My very first HI-Light/Hi-Tech planted aquarium (detail) Very Happy
Am I proud of it? You can bet I am. This HC (Hemianthus calitrichoides) formed a very nice carpet, and still growing.
This tank is joy to maintain and observe.

Good luck all.
Regards, Dusko

This is a past "Pride and Joy" of mine...



Ugly as he may be, William had been with me for about 5 and a half years when I took this picture, likely making him over 6 years old since bettas are often sold at a year. He lived for another 6-7 months, and died of old age just a few days after his 6 year mark with me, making him over or nearly 7 years old (Which is a veeeery long life for a betta). He was my first rescue betta -- he was a Wal*Mart victim, and was covered in fungus and had a bacterial infection. Despite it all, however, he got up and did the famous betta dance for me. I couldn't say no. He made a complete recovery and lived out the rest of his days, even in my less-than knowledgable care at the time. He was awesome, and I miss him. Smile
