As some of you may know, I have been keeping channa for quite a few years and i think it's time i post a thread to update my collection.

My flickr photo stream is available to anyone interested in browsing my Gallery for other photos that I have not shared but do have uploaded online. Photos are available at different dimensions as well
https://www.flickr.com/photos/46810042@N07/

I recently ordered a group of F1 Aurantimaculata from Devon, -DC- and I've finally saved enough photos to warrant sharing the progress. I started with a group of 7 and I've since reduced the Group to 3 individuals, 1 Pair and a single loner. Photos are all posted in chronological order.

Thank you! I also had a group of Pleurophthalmas, but a pair formed and the 2 ended up killing my other 4 pleuros. I'll take photos and videos of the pair next week when im at my parent's residence. The male is a stunner...
