Yeah, they had about a dozen Satanoperca at the store. I don't know whether they still have any but I'm thinking of going tomorrow to check. $15 + tax is a bit much than I usually pay for fish but I really like these and think it'll be quite worth it. Plus, they will sift the sand which is quite awesome.
I thought they were all the same species but I think this may have been the only S. daemon there. The others I'm betting are the more common species in pet stores, S. leucosticta. Still interesting though and if they have any left, will get at least 1 more.

They actually were all S. daemon. I got another one of them, as well as a different eartheater. I think the other might be a young Geophagus surinamensis. I'll get a pic or two later.

Very pretty fish! I am just about ready to redo my 55, and everyone keeps getting all these great fish and now I don't know want. Well, I think the real problem is that I want them ALL!
Great looking fish Rok!

Thanks! You also reminded me that I should probably take some new pics of the fishes.
