Spotted at the LFS

It's always fun to see extraordinary fish. What have you run into?

There's an adult arowana at my LFS who's beautiful, but, when he looks at me, I swear he's thinking "lunch."

At one of the LFS near me they have this ginormous, dark skinned catfish. I can't recall what kind of catfish it is off the top of my head but it is just a monster. It is in a several foot long tank with a couple of foot long plecos and it just owns the entire tank. I swear it looks like something that you would see fished out of the river on the show River Monsters.

Speaking of Arowana, at the LFS's I was just talking about they are actually having a sale on their med sized Arowanas. They are selling them for $36.99 instead of the $60-$70 I remember them being priced for normally. I can remember passing by them a couple times on my last visit and they kind of gave me the same vibe when I wriggled my finger in front of the tank to see if they would pay me attention.

I've never seen Arowana of any kind on a LFS Specials list before, and I'm pretty sure that it is rare for them to sold at a lower price like this. To prove it, more to myself later down the road than anyone else, here is a picture of the listing. You'll notice it in the Exotic's Section.

My LFS has some nice fish.....lots of discus, stingrays, some weird looking SW fish, and also some arawonas. Also has some needle nose gar and bass, both of which I don't think should be in home aquaria because of their size. But that's another argument for another place.

This fish I would love to have had, not my pic of course, and not quite as vibrant but this is likely breeding colors, but one guy at the lfs said he bought 4 of them and they look bright and amazing. His latest favorite fish. Annie's Goby or Stiphodon annieae

Holy crap they are neat!

The craziest fish my lfs sold were baby sturgeon, they were so neat looking but not good for a tank in any way :/

I saw an extremly rare Yellow Unicorn Guppy at one of the LFS, unfortunately, it was not for sale

(Not photoshopped, just a guppy with too big of a plant bite stuck in its mouth)
