    Hi all,

    So, went looking for fish today and got 54 of these long finned african tetras. LFS was excited that I took all they had.

    Am acclimating them now and will transfer to the display tank soon.

    Have been looking for something like this. A bit larger, nice schooler, and definitely not that usual. Anybody with experience that wants to chime in is welcome....I remembered them from my Baensch atlas'..

    I found a nice video:

    Pics later...Looks like their eventual size means they will be the ONLY tetra in the tank. Will transfer the cards at some point to let them grow...

    I also grabbed the following while I was there:

    6 - kribs 4 fem/2 males -
    5 - small clown loaches - I know they get big but takes awhile..
    6 - cory arcuatus
    8 - cory agassizi

    They had some gorgeous syndontis spotted cats, but didn't know anything about them, so did not get any. Need to research them.

    They also have tons of smaller redline barbs very nice, but I had seen the alestes first....

    I also need to get an ancistrus or two.

    I've seen those at the LFS here too. Big fish, I'm sure it's going to be a real eye-catcher!!
