      Hey Joey, what is the decor you have in the tank? I know I've heard you say before but I don't remember. I have piranha and have had different species for 32 years.

    Yeah but... you order 10 adults and you get that? Who's reading those orders, Stevie Wonder? They ***cked up almost that ENTIRE order. Why you gonna bend over and act like that's something a BUYER should just make due with? You're professionally sending out the wrong message to your viewers in my opinion. That's weak, dude.

    Nothing wrong with feeding them overstock as long as it isn't anything in Cyprinidae. I am very much against the feeding of things for the sake of it, but smaller fish is good enrichment for them. I had one for 15 years, Mr. Fish. What a personality he was.

    That's a beautiful really put a lot of thought into it. The lighting is perfect...shows the fish and gives security for them. I think a lot of fish would love that. Just wanted you to know that listening to you talk in this video was very didn't just talked to us in a normal tone and it made it so much more easy to grasp all you were saying. You have alot of great information that's worthy of being listened a shout out to you for not shouting..lololol ( said with the upmost respect and admiration)😍

    Hey Joey, I've been watching your channel for the past several years. I don't know if you read these comments but I thought I'd ask for your opinion anyway. It's been at least 20 years since I had a tank and I really want one again. I moved a lot. I like little fish, a mix of tetras to maximize variety in a small community, Yup, I know they school together instead of in their breed. I'm looking at a 50 gallon size tank, biggest ever for me. I'm wondering about a focal / presentation fish in the tank. Looking for something who won't eat my tetras, but can be the show off fish. Any recommendations? I know Angels have small mouths and are probable safe(?), but more colourful and interesting would be better. Any recommendation? Also, I'm setting up a brand new tank after 20 years, if you could recommend some of your setup videos to watch (over the side filtration today)(planted without Co2) I know I'm asking a lot. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated, any at all.

    Talking about tetras. Could you get and make a video about serpae tetras? Really beautyful fish you can find in every pet store, but an extreme fin nipper. Would be nice to educate people about them so they dont put em with guppys or angelfish and that. You can put em with the piranha once they have a certain size. Big piranha leave small fish alone cause too much effort to chase such small prey.

    Once they are big, you can put small tetras like serpae tetra or black skirt tetras with them. The big ones stop going for such small fish cause its not worth the effort. It looks really cool having like five big piranha with smaller tetras kinda skittering around them :)

Right i am in the middle of scaping on my 55 gallon and I want to almost re-create your pirhana tank but with my own little twist to it and i was wondering if you wouldn't mind telling me where you buy your 3D backgrounds from. Thank you!

    Hey, just wanted to ask something for animal fans and for you. If possible could anyone help me with getting back into turtle keeping. I wanted to for a long time now and well... you inspired me to do it. If i do so i want to be able to share it regularly with people and stuff of that nature. If you do could anyone help me with getting it started again, unfortunately the only place around me is petco that sells them. Which my first pair of turtles survived very well in. I was wondering if there was a better place for turtles besides petco or if they are the best for the turtles, but if anyone could help me set up the best tank for them. My first one had rocks at the bottom since i know they love digging and i had a sunbathing rock that floated then a store filter. They lasted about 2 years in those conditions. I changed or cleaned the bottom with a pump and let my turtles play in some fresh water while i changed the water. But again is this the best for them or is there something better?
