We finally moved to Florida and my brother was forever putting things from the lake we lived on into my aquarium. He once put a crayfish in that climbed out. He put a small baby bass in that ate my swordtail. All you could see of the swordtail was his tail sticking out of mouth of the bass.

I'm much older now and still in Florida living in the north on another lake and still fascinated watching all of the tadpoles turn to toads. I also love the lizards and treefrogs.

This is my petstore crayfish, Sapphira who brings back memories of my younger days when my brother would catch them.
Yes, this poster is not the only one.
I started with a pickerel and walleye in the family bathtub and I'm still doing it.......over 6 decades later!
