    xl red sevs, xl balzani, xl rt mots, lg alb. pacu, mekong ray feeding pics, etc.3/12

    Sometimes I feel as though I must apologize for not sharing enough photos of fish that come and go from my facility.
    Being a 'one man band' or sole proprietor has is limitations. With so many fish coming and going on a weekly basis, there are many weeks when I cannot possibly make time to adequately tend to all specific needs/requirements of each species, communicate/market them to customers, AND do the photographic/posting portion. The aforementioned aspects of my business always come first, while there are often not enough hours in a day for the latter.

    I do keep the stock list at my old fashioned web page http://www.tangledupincichlids.com updated so don't ever hesitate to visit there now and again to see what's cooking.
    I know many of you do and I am forever thankful to each of you. I continue to ship orders daily to individuals and well as wholesale distributors to all destinations within the US. Additionally, I continue to export to many international distributors regularly.

    I am not a prolific photographer and frankly, I don't tend to get overly excited about photographing fish stock. I know it's often a necessary marketing tool and I try to grab photos after the above mentioned details are handled to my satisfaction. After several days and nights of mini photo taking sessions/photo processing, I do have some new photos to share with viewers!
    Hope you like them and can appreciate or learn something by seeing some fish 'in the scale (flesh)' versus a brief description on my stock list. But more importantly, I hope these help you to envision a small % of my overall stock and aid in your decision making process when ordering as well.

    As usual, please do visit the stock list for additional inventory. This only represents a fraction of what I stock at any given time.

    This was kind of fun, so I'll start the photo portion of this thread with a Mekong ray feeding sequence. She is a hoot to say the least! And yes, she is available for purchase.

    Occasionally the fish do cooperate and a photo can be rewarding to view. I still think this is an exception and that I completely lack the patience and skills to do the photography thing well.
    Amazing albino pacu of 6-7" size @ 150 each.

    That's a lot of color to take in, but these 'super red severums' really do offer huge amounts of color to an aquarium with very manageable size and peaceful demeanor to boot.
    The 3.5-4" size are 50 each or 4 @ 45 each. The jumbo 6-7" adults are 125 each.

    Last time I imported jumbo red tiger motaguense was... never!
    There are 7-7.5" males @ 100 and 8-10" males @ 125 each - while supplies last of course. I've been busy shipping these beasts out daily. You see, just because I hadn't posted a photo until now, that certainly doesn't mean the fish don't exist! Thanks again to all customers who have already purchased these big boys prior to my getting pictures out here.

    'African pike' of 5-5.5" @ 65 each. These guys are nailing anything meaty I throw at them - freeze dried krill, frozen foods... Very cool.
    Even got bit by one while in a bucket. Toothy little bastards indeed.

    The 'Nile perch' - an introduced species to African rift lakes where it's wrecked havoc among some native species not adapted to reproduce effectively with such an efficient predator amidst.
    These little guys (for now) are 4-4.5" @ 125 each

    At 4-4.5" size/50 each, these 'phenos' are already quite the phenomenon! A gorgeous Malawi cichlid that firmly deserves a place among md-lg specimen community tanks.

    Not many large growing American cichlids boast such color at the tender size of 1.5-2"/25 each. The rarely collected and seldom bred 'micro' just keep getting better as they mature.
    On a sidenote, I was among the collectors of this juvenile's parents in the Rio Copan several years ago. Who knows which of us netted the specific babies that grew to become breeding adults of now, but it's an interesting and rewarding facet of this hobby to have been in the waters where some of the species we keep originated. By the way, the 'mom' of the babies we collected was about a foot long. We got a great look at her when she spooked in a channel we'd hearded her and the fry into. She leapt clear out of the channel at our shoulder height and over one or two of us gringos with nets surrounding the fry. Parental instinct to protect fry is strong, but self preservation persevered in that circumstance.

    An interesting comparison between two populations of V. melanurus at the juvenile and adult size.
    Juveniles of both are currently available. The Yaxha juveniles are exceptionally blue splangled.

    Always a very sharp looking fish that viewers of your home aquarium cannot help but comment upon. A large 'tricolor' or 'bala shark' is sure to please the collector of even the rarest species.
    I have 6" @ 35 and 8" @ 50 each.

    This is the 'red tail tinfoil barb' as opposed to the common 'red fin tinfoil barb', B. schwanenfeldi. The red tail altus grow to only 8" TL, whereas common red fin tinfoils can reach huge proportions of 15-16" TL.
    These seldom properly identified altus barbs are 4-5" @ 25 each or 3 @ 22 each.

    Another one of those fish that both the first time viewer and the rare species seeking collectors still can stop to admire. The 'gold suam' or 'Ecuador green terror' continue to remain a truly stand out cichlid.
    These beauties are 5-6" @ 40 each.

    Gobies have character! Eyes atop their heads and modified swim bladders to enable them to remain down among the substrate in flowing/turbulent water; the result of which is seen by 'hopping about' the aquarium. Each aspect of their morphology = endearing species to maintain in our tanks.
    Pictured above is a smaller growing and brilliantly red spotted Taiwanese goby of 1.5" size @ 15 each.

    Speaking of endearing (well, to some of us anyway), the juvenile wild Peru oscars may be a perfect example of an ultimate 'pet fish'.
    These little oscars are 1.5-2" @ 10 each or 6 at 8.50 each.
    Below are adult photos of this same race for reference.

    I'm still waiting on a certain Colombian fish to pop up on your price list. I hope I can afford it when it arrives. Those balzanii and red severums look really tempting, though.

    I have been receiving photos of additional fish they are collecting for me as they are working rivers in the SW as per my instruction where commercial collecting has likely never been made before.
    I've seen some pretty crazy stuff this past week!
    There is a very good reason they are down there. Either I will be bringing in above fish with many other goodies, or above fish, many other goodies, plus some hold onto your hats stuff as well.
