Great to catch up with everyone! Thanks Mark and the other organisers.

Hopefully we'll all still be around for next year.

I did my best to panic-buy a lot of catfish ;)

Thanks Rupert! It was probably my most enjoyable Convention yet. Sad a few folk couldn't travel but everybody else seemed to have a great time. I panic bought some Hypancistrus L136, L500 and L450, plus a few Corys - coppenamensis and venezuelanus.

Thanks everyone for a great convention, thought I'd post some pictures/video of some very large Chaetostoma which Pier had in, one I got a good look at, near the glass was ~10 inches TL some looked possibly larger.

I nearly forgot about this little guy, certainly the luckiest Scleromystax in Pier, looks like it may have been panic buying tubiflex!

According to Nathan Lujan, that matches Chaetostoma brevilabiatum.

Cool!
