I just got some new things, I got:
*2xDermogenys pusilla sumatrana (Silver halfbeak)


*1xMastacembelus erythrotaenia (Fire eel)


*6xGymnocorymbus ternetzi (Black widow tetra)


*6xParacheirodon innesi (Neon tetra)


*1xCorydoras panda (Panda cory)


*1xProcambarus paeninsulanus (Blue crayfish) - which has hidden in a rock the whole time I have owned it, it was in the rock in the shop and the woman was not going to sell it to me as she couldnt get it out, so I bought the rock and the crafish, so I am not sure that it is this particular species yet - lol



*note - these are not my pics, they are just showing off the species

I also picked up a flying carpet thing for the airpump, a 3D background sheet and an amazing book with 4,600 color photos of differant fish species so I am a happy chappy

Thanks Juda, Luckely my dad took his credit card with him


but unfortunatly I will be the one who ends up paying for all of this stuff, and the crayfish cost £9,50
which I know is way overpriced, but it is only the second time I have seen crayfish for sale so it was worth it - I hope, I still havn't seen it yet

fire eel ....nice choice
I knew you would like it, I have wanted one for years (about 10-13 years) it is the first time I have ever seen one for sale before and it is really small - about 2" long, were my tyre track is 10" (luckely not in the same tank)

lol the rock cost me £2.50 and the crayfish has never went more than 2cm away from it - I am pleased as it obviously loves it

also Paracheirodon innesi (Neon tetra)

My mum told me once that this species was discoverd by an Innes - but it wasn't me

Nice fish though
they used to be banned from fish contests as they have such amazing colors - go figure what happend when they discoverd cardinal tetras

I like those names, and yes the eel is freshwater, I think they can also live in brackish water, but I only have 1 tablespoon of salt per 5 gallons

Innes, how's the blue lobster acting with your community setup? There are a couple at the LFS, I have been thinking of getting one.
it is in with my smallest fishes and it is pretty good, it has nipped the angels tails a couple of times, but nothing to worry about - I would seirously reccomend getting one

Thats sweet man, i just got myself one of those electric blue lobsters. I keep em with my piranas, and so far hes doing fine. every now and then he has to fight off the piranas, but he does ok. Mine just got a whole lot bigger recently, his shell came off, and it was like in one night he grew half an inch. i think i got a pretty strong one too, he was in a tank with another lobster, and he had ripped off the other lobsters pinchers, both of em.
At first he was just hiding in the wood, but now i see him come out and walk around all the time. I call mine pinchy, remember the simpsons where homer gets the lobster as his pet, he named it pinchy, gotta love the simpsons.
