The last few years have seen more and more being written about keeping discus fish than most other fish species. Anyone who is thinking about keeping discus fish in their home aquarium should of course get all the information they need before actually buying any of them. They are thought of as royal fish, they are native to the warm and calm Amazon waters that charm through their behavior. Keeping discus fish does require a bit of knowledge on their background, about what to offer to make such pets happy and also what to expect from them. Discus fish are considered fish of changing habits that manifest personality.
When first keeping discus fish you will find that they are shy and very calm in general, but when they start making couples they can often become a little bit aggressive due to breeding territory protection. Keeping discus fish will bring lots of rewards but it will also give you a few challenges as well. First off, as you will see with most groups of any type of fish, within a group it is not uncommon that the weakest discus will get bullied; this is something that can unfortunately result in death. Keeping discus fish in groups in a minimum of six individuals is thought of as ideal. By doing this you will increase the confidence of the group members and you lower the risk of group misbehavior.
Cook Inlet halibut are a delicious choice to fish for. Alaska salmon fishing means salt water fishing the salt water for Pacific halibut and neighboring Cook Inlet which are home to the finest Alaska halibut fishing in all of the world. The season runs season runs strong from May through September. The Kenai salmon fishing trips depart from Ninilchik or Anchor Point, which is a little further south on the Sterling highway. Both launch sites offer much of the same fishing grounds, the beautiful icy blue waters of the Cook Inlet. You will be surrounded by the Alaska range on one side and the Kenai mountains on the other. In addition to Kenai salmon fishing, the volcanoes are perfect during clear days.
Most halibut boats are coast guard regulated which allow up to 6 passengers. The boats provide a comfortable warm cabin equipped with a head. And a large back deck where all the action takes place. Rubber boots and rain gear are a good idea for these trips.
The Cook Inlet halibut average from 20 to 50 pounds. The fishery is a strong one, which of course will produce those 100 pounds + monsters you always hear about. The limit is two halibut per person per day. The trip lasts between 6 to 8 hours, depending on the tides and weather. Most likely there will be high tides, although occasionally those low tides offer some good angling.

Very small delicate fish get lost, or are often eaten by larger fish in a normal sized aquarium (30-125 gallons.) But, in a small 5-10 gallon tank, sitting on an office desk, there really are a large variety of small freshwater tropical fish and invertebrates that can be added to make a display that’s every bit as interesting and aesthetic as a big tank.
Here are some interesting freshwater tropical fish wholesale additions for the smaller tanks. Most do well in a planted tank.
Fork Tail Rainbows – Popondichthys furcata (Indonesia code 4764) average 1″
Fork Tail Rainbow
The rainbowfish found in river systems east of the Great Dividing Range of Queensland Australia are schooling and do not do well or show off their best colors if kept singly. Your freshwater tropical fish wholesale tank should include at least six individuals from the species.
Usually freshwater fish are considered the pets for people that are either lazy or don’t really want to take care of something They may like the idea of a pet but perhaps one that you don’t have to interact with as often as others, underestimating the responsibility of freshwater fish care. Well, fish can be the pet for you but it is wise to understand that fish can’t just be tossed into a tank and then left until they die. This is not proper handling of fish and they do require that you actually know a little something about them.
Research is always a great idea when considering a pet–especially fish, as there are SO many types of freshwater fish to choose from. If you’re wanting more than one fish in a tank, be sure to find out whether they are aggressive or not, as some fish will literally kill others in the same tank. It is also wise to understand the environmental needs of your fish, such as tank size, whether it requires freshwater or saltwater, and how often the tank should be cleaned (some fish actually eat the “gunky” build-up on tank walls).
Of course feeding the fish must also be done on a regular basis. Talk to the person or store you got your fish from to determine what brand and how often they were fed before you take your fish home. This can save you a lot of trouble and worry later on. You don’t want to under-feed or over-feed your fish if you can help it. So again research is an adequate process here like other pets.
