A few pics of the fishroom. (added more!)


Well I got a tad bored and decided to take a few pics of the fish room. I could only manage to get a few decent pics because fish DON'T stay still lol. Some would not come out. Funny how they hide when I bring the camera out. But I managed to get a few shots off. This is no where near the amount of fish there are. A video would be much more appropriate for this. A list of tanks are 200g x2, 50g acrylic, 120g, 120g rack system, 150g x2, 135g, 95g, 50g x2, 30g x4, 20g, 5g.

Some of the fish room (can't get a full shot)


200 gallon in room wall- RTC, Red hook myleus x6, pacu, C. marmarate pike, Leporinus affinis


Leporinus striatus and lima shovelnose cat


150 gallon- C. menezesi pike x15, red shoulder severum x10 (dad caught these in peru),, Metynnis sp. (bleeding heart), Stethaprion erythops, tetragonopterus chalceus, leporinus desmotes x2, leporinus megalepis, pictus cat x6.


Festivums x2, abramite x3, tiger shovelnose, B. imitator cat


Exodon paradoxis x10, banjo cat x2


baby red belly piranha's


S. spilopleura piranha (Gold piranha)



Cariba piranha


Uaru x2, red shoulder severums x2, peacock bass, Arrowana, P. lateristriga catfish


Peacock bass 6-7 inches


Arrowana 1ft (still had the egg sac when we got him)


Black Belt cichlid 15 inches


Brycon Dentex 1ft



Pink-tailed Chalceus



Lebiasia bimaculata


Red Tailed Cat 18inches, was about 1 inch when we got him. Thats a 1ft pink ruler on the glass

I wish I could get some pics of the other fish. Some cool ones that I just can't manage to get to either hiding or bad lighting. Kind of stinks. I will keep trying to get some more as time goes on. I know I can get lucky a few times.

You've got quite the setup there! When/how often does your dad go to Peru?

One of these days I'm going to go on that Margarita Tours houseboat collecting trip...

Well he's only gone once so far. That is exactly what he went on to. Margarita houseboat trip. One of these days when I'm out of school and save up some cash, I think were going to go on the trip together. They call him every year to see if he wants to go. He said you go out and catch cardinals and cory cats like nothing. There just there in the water like a blue gill or sun fish would be in the river lol. He traded some crayons and a flashlight for a hand carved boat paddle with the natives. I'll try to dig up some of his pics.

I'd love to see them!

Some of the guys I went to Boliva with have been on that tour and said it's really great. Peru has some awesome fish, plus it's a lifetime dream of mine to visit Machu Picchu.

Those are some really nice fish, especially the cats.

I fell in love with Peacock Bass while in Bolivia. But, um, for my tummy, not my tanks LOL

I posted a link of his trip in your thread Laura. There isn't very many but still enough to get the idea. Yea when they were at the fish market he said they were selling all the fish that people love to keep back home. Rare fish to lol. He said it was hard to look at them dead on a table being sold for a few bucks lol.

When I went all the way to the top to see Macu Piccu I haven't noticed ni one fish there!!!
And I looked left and right!!!

And when I reached the fortress, I looked down and there was not a single fish in sight!!!

So you will be disappointed as I was...

Since 2006. My dad smuggled him in on the airplane in the camera bag with wet newspapers and a tupperware. He was pretty small at the time. He said if he would of known that worked, he would of grabbed more lol. We are still on the fly river turtle hunt! A guy we know has one and he won't sell it to us

Sweet of you to let me know, Edward! I'll have to remember to tote along my own. Perhaps in one of those nifty waterless aquarium setups...
