Very nice photos, Fruitbat. I wish my ropefish would sit still long enough to have such nice pictures taken.
So how big are the little monsters now? Have the juvenile's horizontal stripes faded or is it just the different lighting between the two shots?
On a related note, I saw some stunning polypterus ornatipinnis ( http://aquaworld.netfirms.com/Other/...natipinnis.htm
) in my lfs
this weekend for $40 each.
