I agree with Ron and big fish creep me out.

Just curious, why do they creep you out?

you're right. i should have placed an "in-between" in there. :oops: i was just thinking the majority of cichlids really fall in between so everyone likes them :D
goldfish live on average 15 years in the wild, and less than 5 in captivity.

I have almost the same problem, not sure if he means it how I do... I dunno if it creeps me out, but I definately have a deep childhood fear. I remember when I was little, I was walking on a dock, and I looked between the cracks in the wood, and there was a GIANT carp right infront of me eyes, like 5 inches away (my mom estimated it was about 4 1/2 feet, I said 50 since I was 5 or something). I just jumped up and cried.

Ever since then, although it has gotten much better, I have a hard time looking at larger fish. Anything past 4 or so feet long makes me shiver, and I get slight anxiety over it. At the Shedd aquarium I saw giant sharks and I was freaking out in my mind pretty bad, but I kept watching because of how cool it was :lol: . Then I saw the replica of the 16' Arapiama and that creeped me out kinda bad..

I prefer to keep dwarves. I like the fact that I can have several tanks set up on racks, and have multiple racks with several different species per rack as opposed to a couple large tanks with a few fish in them.
