I think what your thinking of is the Ancistrus temminckii. They're a very interesting loricariidae that only grows to about 4"-5" and are critically endangered in the wild. The ones at critter hut are bred by a local breeder and are black with small white/yellow spots.

Ahh, ok. I got one in the bag w/ my Oto. The fish is pretty cool and really interesting to watch. He and the Oto are always around each other, almost like they're following one another.

On a side note, I went up to Aqua life yesterday. They've got a lot of stuff! Said they'd be getting in Scarlet Badis again, at some point. Bought a pair of small, 1.25", GBR but I'm pretty sure I got 2 females. Also, you can get live blackworms and bloodworms up there as well.

Greg, you guys ever get CPDs in? I'm also interested in Corydoras pygmaeus, hastatus or habrosus. If you do, let me know. I'd much rather drive up to NK over Providence any day of the week.

Yea, I saw those. I'm thinking that I want to the Hasbrosus, though.

You guys get anything new and cool in? I'll probably be up these this weekend to grab another Oto. I can't find the one I bought, sadly.

I'm going to come up there and check them out!

Did you guys get any new plants in? Or any ornamental shrimp?

RI is a fishtank wasteland. No one likes aquariums and the LFS are terrible.

Both Critter hut locations are still going. The one in North Kingstown moved up on post road. They NK one also redid their plants so they have some stuff actually worth buying it looked like.
