Wow, i really enjoy and love watching all those animals, but that list is incompleted. Anyways, thats a good post.

Good post, but i found more animals, like in this page, you should add all this animals.


Aquarium Fish - When choosing the kind oof fish you need to keep you ought to keep in mind that all fish want to be in the same tank,

this is where you must use the internet here and do some research into which varieties of fish suit go in a similar tank.

The true species will not have floating leaves but

it entirely possible that some hybrids will have them.

If you are trying to find a good way to begin a planted aquarium, most types of floating plants are ideal.



Not all the animals there are specific to North Carolina though. This article is specific to animals in North Carolina.
