Re: Collecting fears.......

I'm quite serious.  A wild tiger barb will get to 6-8".  Think about
Guppies for another example.  A fancy guppy is about "normal" size, while
the runtling feeders (terribly inbred without care for, well, anything)
only reaches the tiny size of 1.5", at best...  Thats probably a better
example than my barb, but the barbs are just so amazing.
