Shane's Fishroom

I wanted to join this forum to share my experiences... so I will go ahead and do so. To give you some background, here is a thread on another forum where I started... and where I am now.

Oops... just read the rules and realized that it is not allowed. You can find my thread "Shane's Fishroom (lol what?)" if you google search that phrase.

Lots of learning happened in the past year... and I have a few friends on this forum that I really cherish! So it is worth my while!!

I will give you guys some time to read through it.

In the meanwhile, here is a brief overview of what I currently keep.

Apistogramma:
Apistogramma allpahuayo "Yellow" (30 WC fish are in QT... excited about these guys)
Apistogramma sp. Blauspiegel (Rare fish from Xingu region, very few have photos. Agassizii type apisto)
Apistogramma barlowi (pair)
Apistogramma cf. regani (pair)
Apistogramma sp. Abacaxis (35-50 juvies growing out, 1 adult female)
Apistogramma sp. D50 (Trio)
Apistogramma iniridae (2 pairs, spread 3 pairs amongst local hobbyists as "safeties" in case a natural disaster hits my house and messes it all up... thanks CB!!!!)
Apistogramma sp. Totaya
Apistogramma elizabethae

Pelvicachromis/West African fish:
Pelvicachromis drachenfelsi (from Ted Judy, group of 6)
Neolebias trewavasae (group of 6)
Aphyosemion punctatum "Balo Bai" (group of 25)
Diapteron georgiae GWW 16/2

And then, some miscellaneous items that I have:
Poecellia obscura
Crenicichla regani "Tapajos" (beauties!)
various pencils and tetras etc.

If people want photos, holler the species name and I'll post a few pics... I don't have time to post pictures of all that I have.

Hope to be a nice contributor here!
Shane

Here is a young female... less than two inches. Mature females are just insane.

My male is hiding so I am unable to get some nice flicks of him right now... just got these guys 2 days ago from a friend.

Lots of worms... blackworm, bloodworm, whiteworm.

I will wean them onto flake soon, but it is difficult as they are ambush predators per say. It is not my #1 priority right now.
