Gotta love "Ol Lottsafish" :) There should be a sound warning before opening his page! Looks like they're yours Mike. Nice & healthy!

Not putting a warning was my bad... lotsofpete is not compatible with sanity....sorry!... but his photos are good, no need to struggle myself.

yes, they came in yesterday... look nice and healthy indeed, and I suspected pictilis (nee rubidipinnis) .. figured I want them anyway, I have not seen pictilis offered in the last 2-3 years.

I went for them, actually have them here already. Look good, but mostly stay under the driftwood, so I did not try to take my photos yet.

The problem is that the only good tank I can offer them right now (spontaneous purchase, they are not common lately :( ) has a bunch of stirusomas/L10A (1.5-3" range)... I wonder if they would get molested or eaten... And keeping these loaches in 10g qtank long term is obviously dangerous.
