There are so many fab fish out there and we always seem to want more than we can realistically have don't we? So i was just wondering what you would love to have but haven't got yet for whatever reason?

There are loads that i would like.....so its a tough question for me!

At the minute though i really have a yearning to have a tank based around elephant noses! There is something very mysterious about them and I do like seeing shy fish becoming comfortable in an aquarium environment - I love that they like heavily planted tanks so the whole aquarium needs to be nurtured for them, and the electrical impulses they give off just fascinate me.

Unfortunately i am unlikely to be able to get a tank like this - It would take a pretty big tank to be able to have more than one elephant nose and there is no room for another tank for a start LOL, but also i have read the elephant nose can be quite difficult to actually get to feed in the tank and often die from starvation even when there is plenty of food around - I would be devastated if this happened in my tank affraid so i choose to admire them from afar.....

Xenotilapia nigrolabiata red-princess from Lake Tangynika for me, had others on the list of wants but have been fortunate to get most of them, top of that list was Tropheus Ilangi and we were able to buy some a couple of months ago.

I would say they are quite easy to get but to get some really nice good shaped and good coloured ones can be tricky enough - i used to have about 10 or 12 i think many many years ago - lovely fish but have never seen any fish that can eat plants as fast LOL!
