A macro photo of one of my many red Cherry Shrimp and an Amano Shrimp. Red Cherry Shrimp breed easily in tank and do wonders on algae.

This is one cool catfish that I have always loved. It’s amazing that we house them in aquariums. Down in South America they are as common as channel or blue catfish in America.

This photo was taken at the Downtown Aquarium Houston.

Not to long ago, I posted a photo of the Pink-Necked Green Pigeon. It is a colorful bird. It’s aquatic rival is the Mandarin Fish. It has to be the most colorful fish around.

This photo was taken by unknown photographer.

After having a variety of species of fish over the years, I have learned to love and appreciate the guppy. Guppies are fairly easy to care for, colorful, and give birth to live young. A person who has guppies will never need to purchase fish again. You will be able to give people guppies, because they breed prolifically. They males are so active, one would think they produce their own Viagra. Laughs!

I saw this photo floating around on the internet, and I am not sure captured it, but it is fantastic! I have tried to take photos of my guppies, but their tails flutter like butterfly wings, and they constantly move about. This makes it almost impossible.

So here’s to guppies!
