"I’m probably best refered to as a novice aquarist—-I’ve had the usual goldfish in a bowl to a 20g tropical tank for over 50 years—-I’ve basically kept to my own methods of care cause I’m just not into making this hobby into a job...approximately 5 years ago I happened upon a super tiny baby bull head catfish while on vacation and decided I had to have it—-brought it home violating what I’m sure was no less than a dozen DNR and local laws...I haven’t had any regrets—-the bull head moved whatever I had in tropical fish including two Cories outta their 20g home into an old 10g tank I had laying around...the bull head has thrived magnificently and become the apple of my aquatic eye—-the tropical fish I long ago lost interest in but they refuse to move onto fishy heaven—-the two Cories must be about ten years old which blows my mind—-plus they continue to occasionally smatter eggs on the sides of the tank, and then devour them like caviar...yet today while I did something rare like clean the tank, while dumping out dirty water into the tub, I found a little pinhead sized Cory swimming around just prior to his meeting an early demise down the drain—I netted him out and placed him in what I use for a hospital tank—-I don’t know if he’ll survive but I’ll do what I can—-one of the present Corys I have was born in my tank so anything is possible!—-even though that was 7 or 8 years ago...I’m not going to go buy a pump and filter nor attach a heater—-ain’t spending my money that way or get overly obsessive here—I consider the longevity and good health of the tropicals to be somewhat a phenomenon—-besides the two Corys there’s two cherry barbs and two tetra something or others of which actual variety I’ve said my bull head is all I’m really further interested in and as said hoped these fish would’ve moved on by now—the fact theyve survived elements of neglect, two ich epidemics long ago,and even reproduced is something I have no answer for—-but I guess this is part of what makes us aquarists tick—-to marvel at the miracle of life, and how our intervention (plus lack of) affects their ability to survive and thrive."
