I'm loud and proud of my fish.

I somehow got addicted to SimAquarium, an Opera widget. (Maybe this will get me off Mob Wars on Facebook.) Here's what it looks like now:
I've got freshwater angelfish, clown loaches, and fairy cichilds. I had guppies, but I accidentally sold them all off. They don't make any money anyway. Plus certain types of fish don't like more than x number of other fish in the tank, and it's tough to keep a crowded tank with the fairy cichilds. (They end up fighting each other!)
Before that I had zebrafish and guppies:
I also had water plants instead of the underground cave scenery. And in between there was coral reef. As you get better scenery and lighting, the fish become more "comfortable," and thus breed more quickly.
In the beginning, you breed guppies (worth $12). Then when you have better scenery, lighting, and filters (to handle the pollution of bigger and larger numbers of fish), you can move on to fairy cichilds (worth $224). I'm finally to the point now where I'm breeding freshwater angelfish, worth $1,792. The only catch with them is that they grow a lot more slowly than the other two types and consume a lot more food. The clown loaches take forever to mature, but they look nice.
I've got the most advanced filter and the best lighting. Next I'm working on the pirates' treasure scenery, then seashells! After I've made a shit ton of money, I'll put in some goldfish and maybe some sea turtles and dolphins. They're just to look at, though. They breed extremely slowly.
Isn't my life awesome?
