    Back at the bottom!

    Hey guys! I received some new catfish! I decided to not update anybody until I felt convinced that they were all going to make it and although its on been 5 days Im very confident they will continue to do well. So without further ado, a copy paste from Planetcatfish!


    Well I guess I like pet rocks because I picked up two more of these guys... I also purchased a Fluval prism light so I can cast red and blue light to observe nocturnal behaviours.


    Based off of size alone it looks like 2 males and 2 females!

    And the new project... Loricaria sp Rio Atababpo! 'm very excited to be working with these guys, they are awesome peaceful bottom feeders and are a lot of fun to watch, if you like sharks then you will love watching these guys glide at night and if you like oddballs watching them "walk" around during the day is equally fun. They are supposedly easy to breed so hopefully I can get them spawning and make them more available to Canadian hobbyist (my catfish related goals). So enjoy the photos and let me know what you think!

    Thanks guys!

    I was really happy with the way these photos came out, I've always only shot with my hand so so I could never really play around with aperture but I got a tripod for christmas and its working wonders for my macro shots so far.
