Just picked up a few new African river dwellers for my collection.
First of all....an apology for the picture quality but the fish are still in their bags acclimating to their new homes. I'll post better pictures later.
The first are a couple of small Dwarf Giraffe Catfish (Anaspidoglanis macrostoma
). These are about 3 inches long at this point...on their way to 10 inches or so.
The second fish is the Torpedo Mormyrid (Oxymormyrus boulengeri
). This is a young, wild-caught individual and is a bit tattered but the fins will heal up nicely and the color will darken quite a bit. One of the more unusual of the 'Elephant Nose' fish, this one is about 5 inches or so and will eventually reach about a foot in length.
