My lovely Dwarf Fairy Wrasse jumped last week, managed to get him back into the tank but he had fallen that far to the hard wooden floor he didn't last long, was dead within 30 mins. Didn't think I would ever find another fish as colourful as he was but this little fella just stole my heart as soon as I spotted him. He comes to the front of the glass and always looks like he's got his lips puckered up ready for a big Kiss.

Eleven year old Corydoras Aeneus. They've been through so many things and such bad conditions that I can't believe they're still alive, active, and spawning today. I love them and I dread they day they're gone.

Although many fish have spawned in my tanks out of their own free will over the years, my first-ever setup with the specific purpose of breeding a fish species was only 3 years ago with Apistogramma nijsseni, and it couldn't have been a better experience...the couple was making a little cave and spawning in there within 2 hours of introducing the male, and 3 days later they brought out the babies for us to enjoy.

Here's one of the A. nijsseni babies after a few weeks, proud mom in the lower background:

In my first ever tank which I kept with my roommate, we had many many problems which eventually culminated with all of the inhabitants of the tank besides the paradisefish dying. The paradisefish "committed suicide" by jumping out. Totally depressed, my roommate and I agreed that we probably were horrible fishkeepers and decided to tear down the tank, but this happened during exam week so we put it off for awhile. One day, while studying for another exam, I glanced into the tank and saw something wriggling in there. It turned out to be baby fish! It turned out the paradisefish had spawned and (as I suspected initially) had killed all the other fish in the tank because the tank was so small and they felt the other fish were a threat to the fry. Heartened, we raised the baby fish and each kept one for ourselves. The rest were brought to the fish store to pay for new fish as I began to restock the tanks.

This is a picture of a fish born of the second spawn of the fry that I originally kept, I had intended to completely stop keeping paradisefish and removed all of them from my tanks, but this little guy survived the dangers of my 55 gallon tank while less than an inch long, and I decided I had no choice but to keep him:

adequacy to the proposed theme, attentive composition and technical quality.

We also encourage everyone to add comments justifying your choices, and including praises or constructive criticism to those that weren't chosen.

Participants cannot vote for their own photo, but are expected to vote and add comments for the "other" good photos! All in the name of friendship and fun!
