    Any Fish Appreciation?

    I've always enjoyed keeping a tank and observing fish. Lately, my fascination has grown and I've become much more at peace with fish and pleased to be in their presence. I really enjoy the majestic Tarpon and carp. Catfish are also pretty cool. I currently take care of a tilapia who's named "Dinner"(far from it, I'm veg).

    So, any fish artists/characters out there?

    I've always loved deep sea creatures. Things like viperfish, anglers, barreleyes, vampire squid, tube worms, all that shit. Even apocryphal ones like the bathysphere fish. Things that live in the deep ocean just intrigue the hell out of me.

    I've worked in a few aquariums and am pretty into sushi (so nom), but as a character? Nah. I'd make a sturgeon one probably, just due to history with them. Or something with bioluminescence. Took care of some flashlight fish once, that was pretty cool... although you had to do everything in redlight/darkness or the light exposure would kill 'em.

    I used to go to the aquarium all the time and look at all thes ea creatures, so i was also drawing them all the time. I really love the tropical fish and all the weird deep sea monster looking things

    Cool, thanks for the replies.

    Any of you would like to post your fish characters(if you have any)?

    I love fish, although mostly in sashimi form. Mmm, yellow tail.
    Yeah? well, y'know...that's just like, your opinion, man.

    I did draw this guy. Loosely based on a viperfish, of course, though with some additional pointless decorations.

    I also agree with the sashimi statement. There's a place near me that sells it by the boatload (quite literally).

    I like koi fish more than the tank fish. And I live in Jacksonville, where the local zoo happens to have a huge Koi pond.

    Fiush are cool, but I'd be more likely to keep reptiles instead.

    I like this shark character: Michael
    Watch me swooce right in.
