Labyrinth mania!

After scooping the two Polycentropsis on Wednesday, I went cruising a couple of local shops today, determined to buy nothing....

...and what do you think happened?

One of my fave shops had five 3" Ctenopoma acutirostre in...I was forced to buy two (at $12 each, how could I not?)...I would have bought more, but the eyes on the other three looked a bit iffy, so if they are better and still available in a week...

'Leopard bushfish', yes....they are really cool, and go well with anything except smaller fish.

Great fish! although impossible to breed. Except for 2 exceptions: 1 time at the Basel (Germany) zoo, and 1 time by a German breeder :P
But still very cool fish
