I've been lucky enough to get a couple new fish in past couple weeks.
One I picked up on March 9th and one yesterday March 20th.
On the 9th I drove to Hamilton to ALS place to get his Pristobrycon striolatus, I can't express my gratitude enough .

To bring the striolatus home and to once again see his incredible collection was terrific. My brother in-law made trip with me and was speechless at sight of Als fish especially the almost prehistoric looking GIANT cariba


Then last week when browsing the buy/sell/trade I seen wayne had a nice rhom for sale sooo.

Yesterday, I drove to Wayne Mahs (Gigante Pirana) house to get an 8-9" rhom. I came away with images of the hugest rhom burned into my retinas and almost equally impressive smaller rhom with incredible colours and spectacular shape.
We talked for quite a while and wayne gave me some pictures to scan and share with pf and a nice stuffed/dried piranha too


Thanks to Wayne and Alex for helping me add these guys to my collection.

New tanks are being set up this week to permanently house them.
Here's a few pics. sorry about quality, new camera is on the way

Yes, see right above the big circle part where the speedo needle is attached. it says

"km/h" in black...km/h numbers are black, mph is blue. still about 80mph, haul ass.

Yeah, you definitely need to zoom through Toronto seeing as it's easy to get caught up in traffic around there!

Nice to see fellow Windsor people around baby


Let me know if you're ever selling anything

stunning striolatus & a nice looking rhom...I must say!!


goodluck w/ your new piranhas and be sure to get some new pics when you get them established in their new tanks...I'd like to see how they look in a set-up tank.

congratulations, Pete!!

it must feel pretty cool knowing that you are one of the few people that actually own a p. striolatus in a home aquarium :nod:

for a second I thought that your car's driver's seat was on the other side, but then I realized that it was picture taken of the mirror. Plus, in the picture of the speedometer you can clearly see that the driver's seat is on the right side of the car from the location of the windshield wipers. lol...Im dumb


thanks for sharing the pics & your experience when picking up your new piranha!!!!
