I thought you would have fun reading this
sucinimad: wut fish did you want to keep?
sucinimad: just cardinals and neons?
Gomer Office: nope
Gomer Office: cories too
Gomer Office: and otos
sucinimad: just my opinions!! don't hate
Gomer Office: and perhaps a pair of dwarfs if I can get the biotope
Gomer Office: you opinion is?
sucinimad: but i think you're really wasting a good setup for those boring fish...
Gomer Office: what makes something not boring?
Gomer Office: being rare or colorfull?
Gomer Office: think about it
sucinimad: rare and interesting
Gomer Office: what is wrong with common?
Gomer Office: common fish are interesting too
sucinimad: at least that's MY definition of something worthwhile
Gomer Office: you sound like a collector again
sucinimad: i'm off that **** man
Gomer Office: "if it isn't rare, it isn't worth having"
sucinimad: i would agree with cories
Gomer Office: ok..what fish would YOU have then?
sucinimad: but cardinals, neons and otos?
sucinimad: OH MAN!!
sucinimad: dem crazy tetras!!
sucinimad: which i dont even no their names yet
Gomer Office: see..there you go...must have the rare fish...you too good for common fish
sucinimad: i'll take some interesting cories too!!
sucinimad: and catfish
sucinimad: TINY CAT FISH
Gomer Office: sorry.....but you seriously sound like the collector LOL
sucinimad: i did not use the word "rare" in any of my fish choices
Gomer Office: don't have to say it to not mean it
Gomer Office: when you say stuff like "things that haven't been named yet"...that SHOUTS rare in the hobby
sucinimad: it coulda been named
sucinimad: i just dont noe it
sucinimad: u noe me
Gomer Office: describe what the word INTERESTING means to you in explicit terms
sucinimad: i'm...forgetful and i never pay attention
Gomer Office: LOL
Gomer Office: me too...but define it for me
sucinimad: interesting behaviors, colors, background, breeding habits, growth...
sucinimad: on and on
sucinimad: no rare necessary
Gomer Office: ok...cardinals...they are nice and colorful, they school...
Cories...their manerisms in general
otos...how are they not interesting...not like most every fish that swims around..and when they do, they are odd
...need I go on?
Gomer Office: how is a cardina, oto, or cory (any that you think is not interesting)...how is it not interesting?
Gomer Office: (this is getting fun
sucinimad: i'm glad u enjoy this
sucinimad: cuz i am too
Gomer Office: come on....I am challanging you
sucinimad: rarely school
sucinimad: only schools when first added
sucinimad: then they become drones, always hanging at the front glass waiting for foods
Gomer Office: they school when ever they are threatened...name another fish that always school....start listing them
sucinimad: sure they're colorful, but imo, i find emerald's bland coloration much prettier than cardinal
sucinimad: okay, i should be careful witht he word "always"
sucinimad: nothing is always
Gomer Office: ok....80% of the time
Gomer Office: when the lights are on
sucinimad: but after a short period of time, they cease to school
sucinimad: tiger barbs
sucinimad: many barbs
sucinimad: many rasboras
Gomer Office: I would say shoal, not school
sucinimad: i...dont understand the difffernce between the two words...
Gomer Office: schooling is a tight formation....like when you first put the emeral rasboras in the tank....afterwords when they move around in a loose group, that is shoaling
sucinimad: okay, cardinals shoal, but even more losely than that
sucinimad: i like cories
sucinimad: nothign against cories
Gomer Office: ok...otos...
Gomer Office: try that one on for size
sucinimad: if you do get cories, get something interesting, meaning colorations, shape, form
sucinimad: don get the boring brown ones they sell at petsmart
sucinimad: i would LOVE to get some zebra otos
sucinimad: but the regular...
Gomer Office: boring...what is boring with even the single colored emerald cory?
sucinimad: i get bored of them, of their colors, and after awhile, i hardly notice them ne more
sucinimad: that was regarding otos
sucinimad: wut did u mean about emerald cory?
sucinimad: wut's that?
Gomer Office: some people like black cars, others red...you are the red type
sucinimad: wut the
sucinimad: nahz, i told u
sucinimad: i like emeralds more than cardinals or neons
Gomer Office: why?
Gomer Office: emeralds have hardly the color of neons or cardinals.
sucinimad: cuz they look prettier to me, where as the MAJORITY would pick cardinals
sucinimad: some even say boring gray
Gomer Office: but colorfull was a criteria for Interesting "interesting behaviors, colors, background, breeding habits, growth..."
Gomer Office: so now you are selective?
cause they are not any more interesting in breeding, behaviors, background, growth
sucinimad: INTERESTING COLORs
Gomer Office: brightly colored cardinals are the epitimy of colorful fish...
sucinimad: i've seen red and blue in every tank, i get sick of it
sucinimad: colorful does not mean interesting in coloration
Gomer Office: ah...there we go....it is the "common card"
Gomer Office: hehe
sucinimad: not common
Gomer Office: colorfull= full of color
sucinimad: emerald = copmmon too
sucinimad: but it's hardly interesting
Gomer Office: ok...redefine "interesting" LOL
sucinimad: something colorful AND intersting would be the pattern of an apistogramma
sucinimad: well, for example, emeralds
sucinimad: it's a dull gray
sucinimad: but at a certain spot/angle, you'll see green/blue/yellow
sucinimad: you would really need to site down and marvel at it's coloration
sucinimad: not to mention the eye that changes from white to green to blue
Gomer Office: cardinals are brown when light isn't on them. Their coloration changes from viewing angles.
Gomer Office: You must like ben and jerry's
sucinimad: cardinals are brown when light isn't on them. Their coloration changes from viewing angles.
sucinimad: i see washed out white red and blue and deep red plus neon blue...
sucinimad: nothing else
sucinimad: yes, i do like ice cream
Gomer Office: LOL...you are too much
sucinimad: haha thank you
sucinimad: so now you see my argument?
Gomer Office: nope
Gomer Office: I think you are contridictory
Gomer Office: it is like vanilla icecream
sucinimad: i like vanilla icecream man!
sucinimad: no..me no contradictory
Gomer Office: just because it is so common, a staple, a basis, the original etc etc doesn't make it any less an icecream than than the fancy icecreams
sucinimad: of course, i enjoy vanilla icecream...
sucinimad: dont need bryer or even ben
sucinimad: i'll take savon's...
Gomer Office: well, I'll stick with my un interesting fish then
sucinimad: poor gomer...
Gomer Office: you keep believing that
sucinimad: deprived of all the little marvels in life...
Gomer Office: ah...you just fail to enjoy the "boring" things
sucinimad: nahz, there's very little to enjoy
sucinimad: i hate drones
sucinimad: imvho, cardinals, neons = drones
Gomer Office: LOL
Gomer Office: I think I'll just keep this smile inside for now
sucinimad: i noe wut ur thinking
sucinimad: and u'r wrong for thinking it
sucinimad: <---not contradictory
Gomer Office: so...has this been brain overload for the day? LOL
sucinimad: i refuse!
Gomer Office: hehe
sucinimad: I HATE CARDINALS
sucinimad: I ADMIT IT!!
sucinimad: i wanna feed them to my friend's flowerhorn!!
Gomer Office: and I have nothing wrong with that LOL
sucinimad: but i would take green neons though...
sucinimad: just cuz they're soo small and cute
sucinimad: AND THE'YRE NOT ALL THAT COLORFUL EITHE!!
Gomer Office: oh...so small makes an interesting fish LOL
sucinimad: well...it's certainly unique, wouuldn't u think so?
Gomer Office: small is unique only in the presence of larger fish LOL
sucinimad: in your opinion, do you think green neon is more unique than cardinals?
sucinimad: i wont bash you for ur answer
Gomer Office: i think they are more uncommon, but that is it
sucinimad: ANSWER THE QUESTION REGUARDING UNIQUENESS!!!!
Gomer Office: unique: 1 : being the only one 2 a : being without a like or equal 3 : UNUSUAL ...yes, they are both unique
Gomer Office: the neon is the closest thing to a carninal..that is it. And I am sure you can do an equal parallalism to the green neon
sucinimad: no no
sucinimad: green neon = no red
Gomer Office: ok....the difference between a neon and a green neon is no more than the difference between a cardinal and a neon
sucinimad: the only similarity between neon and green neon is the neon stripe
sucinimad: nothing else
sucinimad: it's like comparing and altum with a scalare
Gomer Office: so you are saying that a cardinal has more in common with a neon than a green neon has with a neon?
sucinimad: yeah...but i think u'r trying to confuse me...
Gomer Office: better start listing those ways and tally up
sucinimad: weren't we talking about uniqueness earlier?
Gomer Office: nope..that was "interesting"
sucinimad: let me think this thru
Gomer Office: I think I am going to cut and past this on APC LOL
