hmmm...not very unique, but I have 4 black kuli loaches. they can tell the weather (when a low pressure front comes in, they go nuts, alerting me of rain...they are actually pretty accurate!) and they also have spikes under their eyes. so I would say they are the most unique fish I have.

Well, they aren't a species at all... a hybridization between Neolamprologus buescheri Gombe, and Neolamprologus nigriventris. :lol: :thumb: :wink:

Here's my Uaru, he's not really colorful yet, but hopefully as he grows he'll color up more





And since someone said a spotted raphael was unique, here's mine :p

Neat I used to have some Orange Spotted sunfish, and long eared sunfish, as well as many darters, and many other native fish to Ohio.

Wow, that pumkinseed sunfish is pretty.

Well, I guess my most unique fish would be my Ctenopoma Acutirostre (the one in my avatar).

Here's a pic of when he was a baby.


And a more recent pic

I have some fish that look just like this, with a iridescent blue tint that comes out occasionally, based on their mood. I accidentally bought them with a bunch of yellow labs; as they grew up I assumed that they were just poorly bred.... now I must read up, because this might be what they are.

Well, you can start here and let me know what you discover. I'm going by the Ad Konings pic below from www.cichlidae.com/gallery/species.php?s=54 and calling mine Londo Bay whether it's accurate or not, lol.
They were sold as Nkali.
