One of my favorites for sure in my community.

I picked up a Stiphodon Goby the other day. Some dwarf Corries 2 pencil fish and some bumble bee gobi.

I now have more goby than any other fish across my tanks.

Next up an order in for five more Oreo Swordtails (1m/4f) after quarantine they will be added to the 30g with my other Oreos making total 2m/6f. Plan now is to have couple Green Moscow guppies added as well.

Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

Nice pickup. Yesterday, I got some rarities - Congopanchax brichardi, a shoaling micro killie, and Microctenopoma ansorgii, the ornate African gourami. This should be a challenge...

Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?





Forgive the quality of photos, they are in QT and the containers are pretty hard to see through. I got them about a week ago but wanted to be sure they would be OK before showing them off.

This is a young pair of wild caught b. macrostoma " Marudi" :D Very healthy and active, and if they keep on the way they are now they can be released in another week. They are just a little shy but as you can see, curious.

If you would like to see what they will grow into, head over to this blog. Its full of pics of adults. bettaautolinker.com autolinking image macrostoma “Marudi” Bee-Point interaktiv

"I've macrostoma tastes on a veiltail budget. "

If i drew it it'd look like a monkey eating a horsradish on the moon or something

The first and third are Beauties!I was fooled by the "ctenopoma",and thought "you crazy man!"
But then I saw the "gourami"
Where is he going to go ?
You did get some good fish!
Nice to here from you.

Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

I have a 75 gallon with four Pelvicachromis subocellatus dwarf cichlids and 18 Aphyosemion striatum killies. It's a big tank without a lot of action, so the ansorgii went in there. They will push the Cichlids a little, but I think they will sort it out. All the fish are still young, and the tank has a complex decoration (jumbles of stuff everywhere...). It should work. I hope.

I have the ornates too. They are gorgeous when they color up. Still trying to sex them. I have five of them, and so far no signs of trying to spawn.

Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

My husband got an Apple snail for his tank. When he was done acclimating it and opened the bag a little yoyo loach swam out. We think maybe he got stuck in the snail at the fish store. Anyway, I have a loach tank (clowns and angelicus) so he is living happily in there!

Re: What Freshwater Fish Did You Get Today?

I picked up a small group of otos and a mystery snail for my tank yesterday, and my bristlenose is not happy with me at all. She has been flaring at the snail (which has taken a liking to her Mopani) and the otos all morning.

Those are some beautiful shrimp. I got some amano shrimp,3 different types of nerite snails, and a mystery shrimp that came in some java fern.
