'Leopard Bushfish'

Finally!!! One of my favorite shops got in one of the fish I've been searching for. This is the first picture of one of my Ctenopoma acutirostre, the 'leopard bushfish', an anabantoid from Africa. They're just youngsters (2 inches) so I picked up 3 of them. Notice the 'hungry' look in its eyes!! Better pictures to come later...right now they're being a bit shy. Oh...and pardon the darned brown algae growing on the back glass.

Thanks BrianNY...

I've always had a thing for the 'oddballs' in the fish world. Some of them are absolutely fascinating!
