Just returned from a wander around my LFS at Wigan Pier. They have just had shipments from Argentina and Colombia and some stunning fish have arrived amongst which were the following:-

C. Longipinnis ( absolute stunners in magnificent condition)
Mixed box of corys all obviously caught together inc C. Dekeri, Axelrodi, Metae and Melini
Red Lizard (Rineloricaria sp. L010A)
Epacionotus Aky (stunning little green otos)
Paraotocinclus sp.
Hi Fin cory (unsure of sp. at present)

plus lots of other fish from Argentina such as Rivulis Punctatus, 4 sp. of Austrolebias inc Toba, Nigripinnis, Patriciae and Belotti, Crinicichla Hadrostigma, Gymnogeophagus sp. Misiones.

A good day to buy.

Thanks for the comments its realy good to hear some positive stuff about
The shop .
It does take a lot of time and money and effort to get some of the fishes.
Its nice that the regular visitors can see something new each time they visit.
I am glad that in these hard times to see this sort of thread.
There are several big players that wont be around for you to get your fish from.
BAS,Oddball express,Cyber .
So it is good you support your shops .
David , Aqualife is a good place too ,tell the people what he has in ,I like Steve he is a good guy.
I am sure you all would like to see the fishes in the flesh before you buy them?

Hi Duncan
it would seem so, although BAS is still trading with hopes of a rescue via the administrators.
