Just got back from my favorite LFS
with my latest acquisition....another anabantoid. I was browsing the tanks and happened to notice a 'different' fish swimming around in a tank full of Giant Danios. I recognized the little beastie immediately and just had to have it! It is Anabas testudineus
- the climbing perch. This one is about 2 1/2 inches long and on his way to its maximum length of about 10 inches. The nicest thing about it was that the LFS
sold it to me for $2.99, which was the price of the Danios it was mixed in with!
Here it is....acclimating in its bag before going into its new home.
