Definitely think theyre the bees knees i got 15 ...

Re: Cory "nana" ID assistance please

My memory is not the same as it was before and their marking...

Re: Which Cactus pleco do I have

Thought once they all matured they LOSE the coloring the more they grow?

So in this batch of L114s I expect them to lose more orange in the seam coloring?

While see the L600 younger one has less orange than the older specimen? Its confusing

They are searching for food already tonight. Bu...

Re: Researching on Breeding Bagrichthys macracanthus

Wow. No one bothered to respond. I am interested in your project as I am planning on trying to get in some Bagroides melapterus when time is right for me to do a fish tank again.

How is the progress so far?
