Hey Phil, if you are wanting some channoides, have a word to Paul (Busman) at next months meeting - he has fry at the moment :D

Good trade Les. Brownorum are stunning little fish. Hopefully they breed for you. Mine are a bit small at the moment to do anything but flare at each other and eat.

If anyone ever wants any channoides for cheap, come on down to Melbourne and take my trio off my hands. They are like guppies. The female lurks around waiting to jump my poor males. I hate mouth-brooders lol.

Second MTS's call, remember Les, no photos, they don't exists. :-).

You will have to do an updated photo of your mate, you seem to have a lot more fish now. Lol.

Maybe you need Ness's 12 step program??

They were not to happy being taken out of there home which is a tub. I choose the tub as there will be no outside disterbancess for them and with heeps of floating plants they dont seen to mind me viewing from the top. The male has ammazing green iradecence on his gill plates, around the eye and on his dorsel

no expert here either..could be bellica, but simorum possibly..simorum are very like bellice, but have a lot of blue..................and 5 years ago Bayfidh had simorum for sale, for quite a long time...had both at 1 stage, bred bellica several times

Well the girl has passed on, (they had a fight and she died of her wounds) now but he still remains I have put a Betta Falx in his tank and they had a bit of a dust up that was started by the Pasive smaradina

He is looking a lot greener and his head has changed a little but he still looks like a bit of a Mong
