Anyway, what is the sp. on the Gymnotus, CFC? coatesi or tigre? Lovely fish. I used to work for an ichtyologist who specialized in them. If it is a tigre, then he was actually the one who discovered it: Dr. Crampton. :)


Its a Gymnotus tigre as far as i know, thats what it was imported as and thats what i bought it as.

Space be quiet or i'll show people that picture of you on your website :p

Juan sadly (or should that be thankfully :lol: ) my ATF is a Hydrocynus vittatus, the smaller less toothy cousin of the golioth tiger in that picture, still an awesome predator but less likely to remove a hand at feeding time and a tad easier to house as they only get to about half the size.

Jeez you really don't do 'common fish' do you? Stunning healthy fish and they actually have room to live and swim (which sadly makes a change from what is often seen). I dream one day of keeping aquaria like these. Still think you're a bit of a wimp though, surely the danger of hand removal is what keeps life entertaining :lol:

If you want, I'll send the picture to Dr. Crampton for you. He should be able to identify it without hesitation.

Great fish, but your tank is over crowded. There is no way you could house an ATF. That fish will never be happy.

lol have you seen his tanks!!!
