Hey all,
almost the end of the year, so I figured it's time to post a couple of new pictures for the last time in 2006.
Hope y'all enjoy them!

Fin Terrestrial plant Reptile Underwater Fish
Crenicichla compressiceps male
All 6 are still doing great in their 80 gallon tank, despite the fact that I'm bummed that only 2 out of the 6 turned out to be females (how bad can the division of sexes in an order be
). They're all in good condition, active, curious, and not that aggressive - they just f'n hate Otocinclus Catfish, for some reason (4 of the 6 have their eyeballs ripped out, although they're still alive and otherwise well).

You and and your fish that "suck"!
Great shots as always Jonas. I like that little pike, but of course, my little C. Sveni could kick his ass any day of the week.

Nick: that's comparing Felix the housecat to a tiger... And still mine would beat up yours (just like my dad would beat up yours
)

Dr. Green: I sold my piranha's last autumn, because they got too big for their tank, and I also wanted to try something else. Now I have Pike Cichlids and Pleco's in my 80 gallon tank (used to be my Redbellies' tank).

nswhite: go for it, you won't be disappointed! It's a very different kind of community, but no less interesting than any other type of community. And anything from 20 gallons up should be fine, if you stick with small species, so you don't need a big tank for it. A large, powerfulk filter is essential, however: pleco's are incrediby messy! If you need any info or tips, just shoot me a pm.
I use a Canon EOS 350D (or Digital Rebel XT, as you may know it), btw. - a bit tough to get the hang of it (took me quite some months), but it's a fantastic camera, especially once you mastered the SLR photography basics!

Thanks for your kind words, guys!

Great stuff Jonas. Your collection is very impressive.

I've always wondered what you would keep if you lived in Brazil.

You'd probably be out collecting all the time :laugh:

I think I'd just fence off a bit of river and call it my open top tank

I do actually plan to visit Brazil (Manaus) on my next vacation, though (as soon as I have enough money - I'm still playing violin on street corners to pay off my trip to China, you know
:laugh: )

Thanks for your compliments, gents

Great stuff. Any thoughts about getting permits for collecting?
