nice!

killifish are so pretty! did you get them at your LFS? because mine never has any.
i have no idea what that speckled, algae eater looking thing is either, but he's cool. is he eating algae? you should post and ask what it is.

LOL I was wondering if you knew he was a hillstream loach; I see em listed as butterfly plecs at the lfs and it drives me nuts. He's an unusual one as well; if you haven't stopped off at www.loaches.com to get some info on em I strongly suggest it

beautiful killies

I just picked up a couple of Pseudogastromyzon cheni, one of the Hillstream Loaches at my local PetSmart. I don't usually buy my fish from the 'chain' pet shops but I do haunt them when they receive new fish because they often get in weird fish that are mis-labeled and you can occasionally get a great deal on an unusual fish.

The Hillstream Loaches came in with a bunch of Chinese Algae Eaters and none of the PetSmart people knew what they were. They finally decided that they were 'Lizard Catfish' and sold them to me for $3.99 each. Try as I might, I couldn't convince the sales people that they weren't catfish! These are the same people that sold me my Bamboo Shrimp for $1.99 each, having them labeled as 'Crayfish'.
