Finally, after being here at the forums for over a year and a half, I have finally decided to stop being lazy and have made up my mind to post pictures of my plastic fish. Here we go. After you're done viewing these, you will notice how passionate I am about my fish and collection.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Here is what I like to call the "redshift" end of the reef, yellow, orange, red, and pink fish reside here.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Here is what I like to call the "blueshift" end of the reef, where green and blue fish reside. 

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Here is my eel cave, where 3 eels I have hide. I have a "window" in the cave where two more eels poke out.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Here is my lower end of the "redshift" reef. All my clownfish can be seen here.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Thought I had just a few fish? HELL NO. I have almost 90. And I have 60 more to go. Here is the bird's-eye view of my "redshift" end of the reef, tons of fish are squeezed in here. 

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

This is my VIP reef. All my damselfish sit here, and my Scythe butterflyfish do too. These are my personal faves.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Here is my "blueshift" reef, another angle for more perspective. 

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

My two Nayab eels, so cute. Here in the eel cave "window" as I mentioned earlier.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

And finally, the lower reef area where all the other stuff goes. 

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

You can notice some of my K&M stuff. Thanks to Beatrice (Froggie). 

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I adore that sexy flying fish that I stole from my ruthless neighbors just a couple years ago.  Twisted Evil 

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Lots of cheap China made figures here that I adore.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Here is my left wing of the deep-sea shelf. Where all the sharks, whales, and sea mammals besides dolphins reside.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Here is the right end, of my deep sea zone.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Here is another angle. The fish lamp I use as my background was given to me 8 years ago by my now deceased 91 year old great-grandmother, she was 84 at the time it was given to me. She lived to 90. It has a story. My great grandma visited me once (we weren't close) and she gave me and my brother gifts. This was given to me. I thought it was junk I didn't need, so I used it for a week and shelved it. It stopped working. Nearly 5 years later, I took it out, banged it a few times, and it magically lit up again! It has since been used as my special background. It is valuable to me. My fish have a good home, so whatever fish I buy or trade or steal (from the ruthless neighbors  Twisted Evil) usually ends up in a great home!  cheers

Thanks for reading, I hope to post more again in the future. PLEASE if you have any fish NOT YET SHOWN in this reef, I would be happy for a trade. Also, please have a look at my searchlist. Thank you so much!

Emma, I am super happy that you decided to share your collection. All collections are interesting even when they look all almost the same, though, yours is a very special one. Like Susanne, I've never seen anything like that, all these little figures make a fantastic collection full of colors and life. Also the stories you're telling turn it even more interesting. I'll check it several times in future, I am sure. Very Happy

Thank you Roger, very much. I have worked on this for eight years. But because I can't find anymore fish from America or that anyone wants to trade, I have to take a break. Sad But I always prize my fish so much. I have every mold and color thinkable, almost. Wink That's my goal.


Thanks to everyone, I am glad you enjoy my display. I make it my goal to make all my plastic animal displays look like a little diorama or landscape. It's truly amazing. I work very hard on it. I don't like to display my figures without a splash of fun. Very Happy All my other displays have plants and posters, but none are as spectacular as my reef.

What a very creative display of your fish.
With all the added decoration, like coral, plants and shells, it feels like art.
Like looking at a painting.
Or like a Japanese garden where everything has its place and purpose.
It's a Yinyang display!
It's a dynamic balance of all things, creating a beautiful harmony.

*hits gong with stolen flying fish* Cool

Easier to check now! Laughing Your collection achieved a point where it grows very slowly and it is sometimes boring. I hope we STSers can help you finding some more figures to your colorful and fishful collection and give a new life to it. Very Happy

Thanks Roger! I am good at helping other people, but never my own self it seems like.  Embarassed
I helped Susanne find a near impossible, rare horse from Safari Ltd back in the 90's.
Yet I can't even find myself a few cheap Chinese fish. Nevertheless, I love them so.  cheers

I've been finding so much stuff I need but it turns out to be expensive and comes from China which is a big no no in my family. Crying or Very sad I really do hope I find what I want soon, or at least some point in the future. I am going to have to rely on a Chinese member if I can find one.

Yes, many people help each other on forum, Susanne already helped many people, myself included and it is how it should work. To help is a prise for itself. I am sure if someone find these China fish, that person will tell you. Only remember that not many people is used with these figures and contrarily to the Safari figure, they're not easy to find with a correct description once they're just fish to the sellers. I am happy that you've found that horse and I hope you can find everything you need. Very Happy

Hello everyone, my fish count has bumped up to 92 with more coming. I somehow managed to locate the Greenbrier International Inc. fish on Amazon. I also located another set via eBay, and one Stecal might help me out with. Anyways, a single, little fish came in from eBay today and I am glad to own him. He is a mix of a clown fish and a mandarin fish. I am buying some extras soon to use for trading purposes, something I rarely do. But it has to be done. The first picture is a photo of all my knockoffs so far.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Here is the newbie next two of the fish he looks like. He is a cross between clown fish and mandarin fish.

IF ANY OF YOU FIND ANYTHING ON SEARCHLIST OT WANT TO TRADE WITH ME, I GLADLY WILL. ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED.

See Emma, Collection is growing! Laughing I hope you can defintively get all these and it is great Steve is helping you. Very Happy
Do you think these fishes can cross? I suppose it is perhaps a mandarin fish made in a clownfish mould. Laughing Well, don't take me seriously once I don't understand anything of these colorful creatures, maybe Willy see it and can help you. Very Happy

Hahaha yeah I think that's just what the brand did! I found Greenbrier International, Nayab fish, and another Chinese set! My friend who isn't a collector offered to help and I'm going to work something out with him first. I really hope it all goes through alright and I just dearly hope I can become the girl with every known plastic fish (2-3" non Japanese). I also sent a message to Beatrice in hopes up a trade but no reply so far. Sad Hopefully Andreas will want a trade too. Very Happy

Great collection. I admire that you have such an extensive example of fish. I someday hope to also get enough of figures like these for a great ocean/ reef display. Luckily many fish like these are cheap, but yes they are hard to find. Anyways, keep up the good work! cheers sunny

Hi, I will gladly give you some suggestions. I am happy to help, since it seems I've pioneered the coral reef diorama here. cheers I am buying a ton of extra to trade away, if you end up having something on my wish list, I can trade you. Very Happy

As of last week, my fish count has approached 100 fish. This number still has to go up. I still have a long way to go. Introducing, Greenbrier International Inc. as my latest acquisitions. These fish are very basic, and plain. They appear to be knockoffs so Safari Ltd's toob angelfish and clownfish. I have spent roughly 1 year searching for them and I finally own them. I am grateful I found them, as very few were left in stock. I have 2 extra and a salt water crocodile as duplicates for trading purposes.

Hello everyone, these fish aren't new, in fact, far from it. But this is my tribute to all the people who have generously traded with me, or sent me figures out of the kindness of their hearts.  Applause Smile Here is my tribute. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

My special thanks to the following:

Andreas (widukind)
Susanne (SUSANNE)
Beatrice (Froggie)
Nando (NandO)

**Note, Andreas and Beatrice sent me some extra gamefish too, I just don't count them as tropical fish.**

A total of 28/100 (28) fish have entered my collection thru trade ALONE. That makes up 28% of my current fish collection. I just wanted to thank everyone who has ever participated in a generous trade with me. Very Happy

I will always try to update this thread whenever I can. But there will come a time when I find everything within reach and fish collecting slows. That's when I'll start posting "throwbacks" or all my sets in order. Or a reef update photo, and show how it looks updated. flower

If you are referring to my other collections, I will post those in a separate thread when my 4 day weekend next week arrives. Very Happy

So nice that your collection is growning and that you managed a way to get some more from gifts or trades with STS friends. I have not yet the honour of having a fish from me to your collection but I haven't gave up yet! Laughing

Hello STS, I sadly haven't posted for a few weeks. I have been off and on to check important messages but due to the recent craze in schoolwork, I had to abandon the forum for 3 weeks. So sorry about that. Recently I placed a very high bid (bloody 30$...  Evil or Very Mad) on a lot of fish I had never seen and would possibly need for my collection. After 13 days of waiting, they finally arrived. I remember after placing the bid, people gave me info on the brand and figures and appreciate it all very very much.  Smile They are indeed AAA. I opened them up and they had that distinctive scent and material... and the size. Then I looked at the side to see AAA on it. They are slightly larger than my current fish but they haven't exceeded my size expectations so they made the cut. Wink Here are some pictures now.
