Juno ari levanah's odd life
arilevanah 2011/2012 - Some of the fishes I have photographed all in one dreadful collage (sorry for quality). Burton and Aki were from the fish tank at the respite I was at. Burton (top left) was the tiny one who made me fall in love with plecos. Aki (top right) was an interesting little betta. He was adorable. The little red fish. I took so many pictures of them, in fact they were the first two fish posted on my instagram!
You all know Little JB (left center), Spot (bottom) and Skittish (right center) from job skills. (Other 3 fish in this collage.) This was ages ago, when I wasn't quite sure what Spot (who didn't really have spots) and Skittish were.

As usual, thanks for reading! #fish #pleco #plecostomus #loach #zebraloach #yoyoloach #betta #crapquality

arilevanah 2007 - Lego bucket makes good hiding place from tiny humans.

Jezebel got her name from me writing a list of things I wanted (when I first was homeless) when I got a place of my own. Among chocolate cake and some other things was at the very end, "a cat named Jezebel." I have no clue why Jezebel but yeah. #cat #nofilter #silly #legobucket #tabby #tryingtohide

arilevanah 2014 - someone was knocking so loud on my door I thought they were trying to break in. They came back the next day, looking for the leasing office, which I am not (I didn't open my door, just yelled from behind it). To this day I wonder if they were trying to break in. That said, I put my heavy wooden chair against my door and enlisted three bodyguards: The Caterpillar, Unnamed Penguin and Britney the Mini-Pig. #apartmentlife #aroundthehouse #funny #stuffedanimal #pillowpets #lol 1w

HOLY FUCKING SHIT THE EMERGENCY ALERT ON MY PHONE SCARED THE FUCK OUT OF ME... nice to know it works, first time I've ever heard it (and I'm all right, just hanging out in my air conditioned bedroom.) My weather app has been blowing up all night, worst of it has been east of me so far... I hate summer. ๐Ÿ˜ฎbad weather please just stop... 2w

Hefe ari levanah's odd life
arilevanah @fishoexplotion1x1 had a great post up today about #ostracoderm fish, it reminded me of #placoderm fish (someone else mentioned these to me awhile ago) and made me wonder if they could be possible descendants of the present day #plecostomus and/or #loricariidae armored catfish? If only I could science better, this is utterly fascinating. The body shapes on both... the outline looks quite pleco-shaped, but who knows. (Screencaps via wikipedia) #science #paleontology #fish #fascinating #extinct #armoredfish #wikipedia #prehistoric 3w
  •   fishoexplotion1x1 That's a very good theory actually I didn't even think of that but the hard part about this post was the research because so many information in so little time it was a crash course but this fish is the oldest recorded fish it could have branched of and evolved to a different looking species but could be a horse shoe cap effect where it still looks the same but very good theory bro that could be I'm gonna look that up more and mabea post that and give you a shout out 3w

  •   arilevanah Someone else brought up the placoderm idea up to me (their puzzle was "is the name plecostomus possibly derived partly from placoderm?" Still haven't thought about that.). It is a ton of info (some confusing at times) at once, I agree... I've not even went past wikipedia yet looking at this stuff. Wow! I didn't know that about the fish you posted, that's cool. Another point on your branched/evolved/stayed the same point, plecos DO look really prehistoric at times enough so that I do kind of wonder about it.. Thanks! I'm not a professional researcher, but there's always stuff you wonder about! 3w

arilevanah Awful collage but anyhow... story time! They fed the fish this morning and of course, the plecos are awful at finding wafers (they do but not very quick). Well this little one found a wafer and sat on top of it HIDING it from the big plecos! Yup, the wafer was under him and he was protecting it! Lol he's so smart, Khal Chaeto. Best pleco ever. #pleco #plecostomus #fish #chaetostoma #coolestfish #lordofalgaewafers #tackycollage #crapquality #love 3w

arilevanah I feel like I posted this before... and I have no idea what he's stuck to. Quickie profile:

Khal Chaetostoma - little boss

Khal Chaeto came as a slight surprise to the fish tank. He is the smallest pleco in the tank and one of the cutest plecos I have ever seen. I want to hug him (but can't because he's a fish). Of course, no sooner than he moves in he goes and boots Spot the yoyo loach out of his longtime cave residence like a tiny boss. It was hysterical to watch this quick, tiny pleco run a ~5" yoyo loach out of the cave - defending it like he was there forever (Khal Chaeto that is). 10/10 I would totally keep a rubberlip pleco myself one day. (No not him, one of my own.) #pleco #plecostomus #chaetostoma #longpost #fish #crapquality
As always thank you for reading
