River Monsters

River Monsters is a TV show that is on Animals planet.  Now I don't have a TV, and I came across this FABULOUS TV show through the magic of Netflix.  It's a documentry show, as are most shows on animal planet.  About River Monsters!! A.K.A. Giant freshwater fish that eat, or just kill people! Sounds like a good show right?  Well it is! But it's not for the faint of heart, or the weak-stomached.  :3  If you really want to know, you can do a few things about your curiousity:
1. Ignore it, it's gotten you in some pretty odd situations before.  (I know the feeling!) o.o
2. Look up the following fish:
Alligator Gar
Wels Catfish
Piraiba Catifsh
Candiru Catfish
Candiru Asu Catfish (Those catfish dude, they're awful!)
Bull Shark
Giant Freshwater Stingray

I highly recomend the last two.  Pfft, completely ignore the first one even!! Unless you hate the sight of blood, and bones... Then trust your better judgement.  XD  Though the second option would be O.K., too! My new dream aquarium includes:
Redbellied Piranhas (Piranhas)
Needlenose Gar (looks like alligator gar on smaller scale)
Cory Cats (look a bit like wels catfish!)
Redfinned shark (Look a tiny, tiny bit like Arapaimas)
Banded Bamboo Shark (Piraiba Catfish)
>insert fish that looks like bull shark here<(<--- Skilled tagging :3)
Giant Freshwater Stingray (Blue-spotted Stingray is the look alike!)

I love fish! <3 ............ <33 .............. <333333333333333333333333333 <---- FISH.  Okay I'm done posting now! XP

  1. BY THE WAY I recomend this website if you want to research the fish on the show: http://animal.discovery.com/fish/river-monsters/piranha-fish/


Quick facts:
Bettas need at LEAST 3.5 Gallons of water, a filter, a heater, lights, and a thermometer!
Fish are not as easy to keep as most people think.
Guppies are also called "Millions Fish" because they have so many babies!
Bettas, and some other fish have an organ called the "Labyrinth" which allows them to breathe air.

What do you think about that?
