This website is dedicated to Ol'Conrad.  He passed away shortly after Christmas, 2013.  He had made stupendous contributions to our hobby through his dedicated and careful breeding of aquatic animals.  He was a good friend and best buddy of Pete's and will not only be missed greatly by Pete, the hobby will forever have lost a valuable friend and asset. But his progeny will live on forever in his memory.

​Hello Folks! I am Ol'Lotsoffish, AKA as Pete Mang.

 My auctions are on Aquabid.com . I often have
 up for auction a wide variety from the Guppies, Swordtails, Platys, and
 many varieties of catfish, fresh water shrimp, crayfish and hell - you want it, I can probably find it for you.  In fact as of 2012 I thinned out my livebearers and​ folks got some awesome bargains, cause I have gotten back into the hard to find egglayers. 

Why should you buy stuff from me instead of all the other sites on the Internet?

 I can answer that very easily, My fish swim circles around all others! 
While other people screw you with $45.00-$80.00 fees just for shipping,
 box charges, handling fees, heat packs, etc. I ship free including heat packs when needed.

I am concerned about getting you the finest quality animals at the lowest price. 

When keeping females in a breeding trap I like to FEED them but any food that falls below the slots in the trap gets trapped (duh) and will begin to rot in the chamber below. One way of solving this issue is to place shrimp in that area and why not place berried shrimp there? It instantly turns your trap into a multi purpose tool and now you are actually using it to breed 2 animals instead of one.

I sent one of my Male Black Swords to Dan and Karen Gumon in 2010 and they beefed him up with some TLC and then took him to the American Livebearer Association Annual Show and convention and walked out with a 1st Place TROPHY for him!

Why go anywhere
"He brings out that 10 year old kid in me who had
An aquarium in the house with what I now know what was a siren in it.
The tub in the basement had a baby alligator in it
The backyard swimming pool, tubs, garbage cans at different times had Carp, bluegills, bullheads, turtles, frogs, salamanders, snakes, lizards ..
Since I cant go back to being 10 and move to New York ..
Hey Mang! Show me them Darters you got!!"


Rainbow Darter
"All the Darters are BY FAR my favorite fish to keep and if I could afford it I would have a whole fish room set up just to strictly keep different species of Darters in. I have been keeping Darters off and on for the past 35 years or so and they are a fish I will never get tired of.

They are NOT just about the blazing color they display either. They are hands down the most intelligent, alert and inquisitive fish I have ever kept and they are very active yet they will also suddenly sit down, turn their heads and just watch you for a minute or two just to see what you are up to when you are around their tank. And YES I am serious. They are one of the ONLY species of fish known to man that actually turn their heads and look around them to see what's going on around them. Seriously. They have "personalities".

They also LOVE Frozen Blood worms and that is what you outta plan on feeding them regularly. They will also eat frozen brine shrimp and most smaller frozen foods along with live black worms AND live white worms.
You do NOT need a heater to keep these fish but they will NOT die at higher temperatures, and they like well aerated water. A power filter or an air stone works fine for that and the more water flow you have the MORE active they will be. They like LOTS OF ROCKS but will NOT hide all the time. They really enjoy swimming in currents and swim more like birds flying through the air than actual fish swimming in water. "  - Pete AKA Lotsoffish
For you new to the hobby you probably will not get the above joke.  Pete is well known for his hints and cures and knowledge and for bending over backwards to help hobbyist where he can.  Some fish keepers who want soft water for certain species will use peat in conjunction with the tank water.  SO    --- get it????  LOL
