Fish tank in Cameroon

I was in Cameroon this past May. The hotel I stayed at in Kumba had two fish tanks. This is one of them. Sorry in advance for the crappy quality, but hopefully better than nothing.

Mostly swordfish in the tank. It was nothing amazing at all. I was just so glad to see an aquarium again!

I know a guy who went on a collecting trip in Cameroon last year. He got amazing pictures and fish from that trip.

The people from the hotel should have put some native Cameroonian fish in there.

Oh that's good that you were helping with Heifer International. That's a good organization.

That's a good charity...give not a cup, but a cow.

Yes, it is a very good charity. We started a college chapter of it at IUPUI here in Indianapolis and took a study tour to Cameroon, so we could get some first hand knowledge of the organization to spread to others.
