What would you keep...

...if you had unlimited money, space, and time?

There are a bunch of aquatic creatures I'd keep but here are a few:

-A Fly River Turtle (Carettochelys insculpta)
-An Octopus (there are so many different species I want to keep I won't list them all )
-A Cat Shark (Chiloscyllium punctatum)
-Thousands of Neon Tetras, hehe (Paracheirodon innesi)
-Electric Flame Scallops (Lima sp.)
-A giant white doubletail halfmoon betta (Betta splendens)

I would also love to start breeding projects for certain species like the Volitan Lionfish (Pterois volitans)...so they don't have to keep taking them from the wild.

I wish i could have some type of aquatic house at the bottom of the ocean and just spend everyday ..and night...scuba diving along the bottom and all the levels of the sea. Now that would be wonderful! Just think of all the things you could find, see and learn about!

Ummm...a tank of oscars or red bellied piranhas.I will someday have them (I used to have an oscar) - I just gotta buy new tanks first!

More unrealistically...I would have a huge pool and have a couple of seals!!!! Maybe harbour seals or another smaller kind!!
