Congo Tetras - Phenacogrammus interruptus

I tried to get these with no flash and only the aquarium fluorescents (2 X 10watt) as a light source. Didn't come out too badly! These are one of my all-time absolute favorite tetras!!

Stop buying all the fish I still need to buy Fruitbat, you're making me feel woefully fishless. =P

Great tetras too.

Well I had to put SOMETHING in the grow-out tank with my little Polypterus babies!!! In fact...I added a couple of juvenile Synodontis eupterus today. I'm going to have a heck of a selection for my 72 gallon tank when it is ready!! Pics of those when they decide to come out of their hidey-holes!!

Nice looking Synodontis eupterus! How big will it get? How large will the congo tetras grow?
