Woohoo! New fish!

Finally we got the chance to make it to the LFS instead of Petsmart or petco! They are still kinda shy but I was able to get a few pics!

We got a

Tangerine
Taiwan Reef
Ruby Red
African Ropefish
Electric Catfish

They are pretty awesome and very colorful!

He's found him a hole none of the other fish can get..... And my acei was very curious about him last night when I put him in until he got a little too close!! Lol When he got popped he jumped back and hit a rock, now he's got a little gash between his eyes! He doesn't mess with the catfish any more!!! Lol

The rope fish kicked the bucket..... And I guess the catfish did too I guess. The diff is, I never could find the catfish..... Idk if he Barrie's himself or what.... Very strange! Lol

Isn't it nice to see fish in a pet store that aren't the same ol' "chain store" fish? You wouldn't be able to find a cat like that or a ropefish in the chains around my area.
(Just something to think about )

There's just way too many places in your tank that he could be hiding in. You might want to take a flashlight about 2 or 3 hours after lights out and see if he's roaming the tank in the dark ( like a lot of catfish do ) I'm hoping he's still in there and kicking

Ill give that a try..... I took all of the rocks and decor out. Then I used the handle of my net to sift through the sand and he didn't turn up..... And it's been a few weeks since I got him and out of the 6 of us in the house nobody has seen him! I guess we'll see
