How's THIS for a deal I couldn't refuse??

Stopped by my favorite LFS today to see if they had anything new or exciting. As I wandered around I came to a tank that has some fish in it that just weren't selling. I've been looking at the fish in question for quite some time but just wasn't ready to shell out the $15.00 each that the store was asking.

One of the store staff noticed me and walked over. "If you want those fish, we'll give them to you." he said. Needless to say I didn't have to be asked twice and now these two are in their new home at my place!

Here they are:



These are a young PAIR of albino Polypterus senegalus (the male is in the back...notice the enlarged anal fin). They're a bit small for their age but I'm sure that with a healthy diet they'll be up to normal size in no time! I just couldn't pass them up at that price! :D

Edited because Toirtis is a smart-aleck :lol:
