Well....after resisting Polypterus senegalus
and Polypterus ornatipinnis
in my lfs
for months....I finally saw one today that I just HAD to have!! It is a baby Polypterus senegalus
about 3 inches long. My favorite lfs
got in a whole tank full of them....about 30 or so. I looked and drooled and told myself that I really don't have any place to put one. Proud of my strength of will....I walked away from the tank. Two tanks down was a lone Polypterus
. A closer look and all my willpower disappeared right down the ol' filter tube.
My new aquisition is an ALBINO Polypterus senegalus
and his color is exquisite!!! I'll get some pictures as soon as I can....this just gives me more incentive to get that 72 gallon bow-front that I've had my eyes on for the last couple of months!!!!! YAY!!!
Oh...and I also picked up a gorgeous Aponogeton natans
, an Asian species, to replace the Aponogeton ulvaceus
that I have in my 26 gallon. Now if I can just find something to replace the Anubias
in that tank I'll finally have all Asian plants to go along with my Asian fish!!
