    Today I saw some STUNNING STUNNING STUNNING Lake Tanganyika Killifish (Lamprichthys tanganicanus). Never seen them, they were massive, looked more like Rainbowfish tbh. They were a brilliant blue colour with yellow streaks :hyper:

    Saw some 'red tiger' scats, and added them to a long list of fish that look fantastic but I'll probably never keep.....

    and came back with 1l Easycarbo, 500ml Profito and a pack of Dennerle V15 root tabs i.e I was very restrained and did not buy any fish!

    Saw some gorgeous puffers labelled as "Topaz" (Tetraodon fluviatilis); a group of Flagtail (Prochilodus?); a group of Zebra Otos (looking nothing like their potential in a bare tank); a lovely group of P. buffei that I keep wondering if I should consider to act as reassuring "dithers" for my squittish Barilius (hukaungensis?) youngsters.

    and came back with a group (12) of Corydoras sterbai youngsters for my 620T (which i may well have to upgrade to the Rio240 in the future, but I did not have the heart to split the tank group who were all very activel and healthy looking) plus a lovely 15+cm SL Synodontis decorus for my 5-footer.

    The S. decorus has had a massive transformation in the space of just two hours, which had spent close to a year in a small shop tank with no water current and rather warm temp (26C) for these Zaire River catfish. It basically just rested on the bare tank floor next to a small piece of bogwood looking pretty... Now it seems to be having a great time exploring its new surroundings thoroughly, often actively seeking the current of either of the external filters on the tank, while looking terrific![​IMG]
