Fishy Fotos - all sorts


Recommended Posts

Mucking around with my camera the other day scores some real nice shots. Most of these fish came from a mysetery bag of tropicals from the market, some I purchased, one I bred myself.

Enjoy :)

Wow they are all gorgeous fish! I'm so envious! My 3ft planted tropical is look well neglected at the moment, probably coz it is :). I'm trying to get rid of the fish that are in there so when I move I can start again. I really want to get some bolivian rams and love the look of your Red Forest Jewel.

Thanks, I think they're nice fish too. Even if I do say so myself.

BTW taronga zoo keeps longfin rosey barbs with white cloud in a natural pond in one of the asian cat enclosures. I didn't think they could tolerate cold temperatures (it was late autumn when I visited, just before the elephants moved in), maybe they've been accustomed but I can't imagine so as the enclosure was set up for the fishing cat and not the fish.

I bought Ruby as a runt fish, all brown with some green spots, felt real sorry for the poor bub.

Look at him now not bad for a reject fish, and real easy to take care of, he seems to hang around the kribs (you can just make one out in the background).
