I can't wait until I earn a decent amount a money and have my own place so I can have lots of fishies xD

Okay great I didn't know about the salts. I am going to buy the sand specially made for cichlids that keeps the water hard and alkaline. But if that doesn't keep it high enough I will definitely get some of that salt. The salt will also be handy in case of a pH crash.

Me neither Wink I want a big, nice apartment/my own house already! Grin Man, bet each and every room of my house would have a tank of some kind d:

Nice! Cheesy Looks great Smiley but there are tons of other catfish that are more interesting than bristlenoses if you ask me Wink But it's of course up to each and everyone to pick one they like most for themselves!! Smiley

Yeah I have seen some adorable plecos but I have no idea where to get them from as my local aquarium shops only seems to stock the common types.
And the ones that I love always seem to be rare...and very expensive too! >.>

Abbie: I happened to read somewhere that this fish will grow about 10cm in a year or so... so in maybe 4 years he should reach his full size Smiley

I do hope I'll have my Oscar setup by then! D:

Andrea: Lol xD Maybe a bit! xD I'm not saying that they're not cute, I really like them and their funny mustache Wink
But there are so many amazing catfish! Some that are making sounds for example, or those that have some funny habits when eating, breeding or... you know, anything Tongue

Yeah I know what you mean Tongue Glass cat fish and upside down one to name two. Even pleco's are probably more interesting than bristlenoses. I just have a soft spot for them Smiley

Well, I guess they're called "Common Ancistrus" for a reason Wink But it doesn't make them any less charming Smiley

Yeah I have a 10 gallon with 2 goldies but I'm upgrading to a 40 gallon in less than a month! I hope it will be a beautiful set up with 3 - 4 goldfish and a mystery snail!

Congratulations, Fantailer! Smiley
You will really enjoy having a bigger tank and your goldfish will too! Wink
You'll have to post some pictures when you get it all set up!
