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.

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.

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.

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...:wink:

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...

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 :icon_cry:

Fly river turtles are awesome, but there are no licensed breeders anywhere. The ones that you find for sale have been smuggled out of Indonesia illegally. Because of their constant exportation, they're on the endangered species list.

It is now illegal to import them to the United States too.

Not sure if they're illegal to own, but i've always wanted one too! Very cool looking turtles.

Incase anyone hasn't seen what one looks like, here's a picture:

You should have lol. I don't think that price is to bad actually. I bet you could of bargained a bit lower since that is a decent sized turtle that many people wouldn't have room for. I remember back in the day we converted an old water bed frame into a pond that had a waterfall into a huge galvanized pool, in our basement. We had a crap load of turtles. Mostly common missouri turtles. Red eared sliders, map, softshell, and common snappers. Hell we have one red eared slider that is older than me! Right now the coolest turtles we have is the matamata, alligator snappers, and a red-cheek mud turtle. Need a fly river bad.
