Like many people, I like aquariums.  Watching the fish swim with the subdued lighting, reflections and slow pace of most of the inhabitants make for a relaxing time for those peeking into their underwater world. Make it a really large tank with really large fish and enjoyment factor goes up exponentially.

I used to have three large fishtanks that covered one wall of a very small apartment. They were a mixture of tropical fish that provided many hours of entertainment and beauty.  Who needed a television, when you had three tanks to watch? It takes a very large aquarium to hold this catfish, or mud cat as it’s known in some parts of the country.
