Mike's Tropical Fish

Someone emailed me and said that there are at least 145 baby Jack Dempseys in this picture!

Finally after over a year of trying, we have a healthy brood of Jack Dempseys. Go to the fishy log page to see how we did it and what problems we had. Check out the pages with information about some of our other aquarium projects, what we have in our tanks, and some opinions on a couple of subjects.

While I have your attention, I would like to make a couple of suggestions to new fish keepers. The key to long fish life is to stock your tanks very lightly, feed sparingly and do periodic partial water changes. In many cases, I have keep only one or two fish in a tank, and it is surprising how well they will do. When I moved back up north several years ago from Florida, we had to give away two angelfish we had for five years. Currently we have a goldfish that has been with us for 6 years. It is funny how you will get attached to them when you have them that long.
