Hey everybody! I just got one more fish on my wish list. :D He's not very big about 1 1/4". He has a lot of turquoise pearl spots already. I think he is going to be a real looker. He is still very shy, this is the best pic I could get right now. His name is Nigel.



Tell me what you think of Nigel.

Thanks renegade545. They had some others in the tank that their bodies were a darker color and a lot lees pearl spotting. I thought he had the most potential. I paid $4.49 for him. Is that a good price? I was just so happy to even see one around here I would have paid twice that.

He a beauty. They are going on several lists for about $5 to $10 at that size, plus shipping. Looks like you got a good deal.

Sounds like a good deal to me, especially since there are none in my area either!

You have any more pics?

Thanks Markmo723 and stuckinthemiddle. He is just starting to settle into the new tank. I just got him yesterday. To my delight he is already eating. I'll get some more pics now that he is starting coming out more.

Thanks heylady. I'm really excited about this guy. These fish are so awesome looking when they get bigger. Hows it going with you? Any luck with your Texas and Blood Parrot? Hows that FH doing too?

No luck with the texas and BP....I don't think these two are on the same page at all. But that's okay because at least for now they are good companions for each other. The FH is doing really well, her colors are getting more intense and she is becoming very bold. How are all your other fish doing (especially your FH's :wink: )

All my fish are fat a sassy and doing great thank you. My big FH I think is a female and is getting some better color. My little FH I think is a male, his kok is getting bigger and so is he. He's about 4" now and still full of blue pearling. I would love to see some new pics of your fish.

Used to breed bettas.....halfmoons. Stopped that when kids came along, but couldn't stay away.

While I was in the process of closing down the operation.....I happened to win an auction of electric blue jack dempseys.....so.......never really got to closing down the operation, but did switch gears to electric blue jack dempseys.

So at this time, I'm spawning electric blue jack dempseys (and bristlenose plecos)

I've never seen a Columbian black tipped Shark cat...I'm gonna go goole it now.

:)

EBJD that is one more fish I have left on my wish list. That's awesome that you breed them. I'm impressed..... very impressed. I love the Bristlenose plecos. I don't see them very often around here. I snatched up the only one I saw around here. I'll post a pic of my shark cat so you can see what he looks like. I have him in a brackish tank with the GS puffers, archer and scat.

Just remember colombian cats are one of the venomous catfish ... those allergic to bee stings probably shouldn't take the risk of keeping them. (large chance of cross-over allergies).

WOW I didn't know that dwarfpike, thanks for the info. What is venomous on them? Is it just venomous to humans or other fish too?

Both, one of the rare catfish whom has a vemon gland attached to their fins, though that one can't remember if it's the pectorals or dorsal. I always avoided them since they get large enough to eat cichlids and am allergic to bees, so never wanted to take the chance. :p
