Default Hooray Cichlids!

Just a last minute reminder that the fall cichlid auction is tomorrow, doors open at 10AM. I've never been to one so Im not sure what to expect, hopefully a lot of cool fish though . Here's the link with all the information... http://rmcichlid.org/wp/ai1ec_event/...?instance_id=7

I only stuck around for an hour or so...I got there at 1030 and looked through the fish bags but mostly saw african cichlids so around noon I bounced out. My favorite thing was those orange lobsters haha.

If your not able to get some EBF's (electric blue rams?) at the auction, Catfish Charlie's has some in stock, they looked pretty darn healthy when I was there last week.

They called it African Madness. Quite a few plecos, a few shrimp, couple of Kribs, but mostly Africans and equipment.

Does anyone know what the he** a "blue crystal shrimp" is? I bought some (most of them were dead... big disappointment), thinking they were crystal black shrimp with an off-name. What ones are still living look like a fairly pale, non-descript neo-type shrimp. Could they be blue velvets or something of the like?

The little plecos I got are gorgeous, though! Lots of nice plecos. Missed the two lots of Kribs.

Some pricey fish there! Tremendous selection if you are into cichlids.

I agree, lots of cichlids and Plecos. I got the first Apistogrammas and got out of there before the snow got to bad to drive back to Cheyenne.
