Firstly I would like to say a HUGE thank you to Ollie.

I scored some fish today from someone who was passing through Aquotix and we asked Ollie if I could leave them there until I finished work in the arvo.

He didnt have a problem at all. a MASSIVE THANKS!!! :)

 

Anyway, While I was there I snapped a couple of quick snaps while Chris and I ranted on about how people dont keep the old skool species anymore.

 

Albino BN's, Heaps of them.

10527514_10152323692778565_3132801657776

 

Some STUNNING Altolamprologus calvus these were very impressive!

10489857_10152323692798565_2573732974923

 

A tank FULL of Labidochromis caeruleus. Very nice color and shape. Getting harder to find good quality of these nice fish.

Some cool little Andinoacara rivulatus, One with some odd patterning.

10151891_10152323693008565_1908451362028

 

And a really old skool species that you just dont see anymore, Real stunners & great size too. Maylandia hajomaylandi

10418235_10152323693148565_406947647670710403284_10152323693078565_56099103869711524600_10152323693058565_54488513768385

 

Why doesnt anyone keep cool species like this anymore?
Amphilophus longimanus

10429404_10152323693158565_6594738457355

 

Some AWESOME looking Tyrannochromis macrostoma, these were BEAST!

Why dont you guys grab some!!!!

10376860_10152323693168565_8150667590421

10553441_10152323693138565_3155292185840

 

Another species I havent seen in awhile, Nimbochromis polystigma, Very nice quality.

10478183_10152323693268565_7629569855760

 

Some beautiful Dementia praecox, If you have a community tank, You should have a few of these. Great color and size.

10443496_10152323693273565_1394585968755

 

Some sneaky little Champsochromis spilorhynchus. Awesome price too.

10378251_10152323693398565_7726921101985

10419518_10152323693348565_2272110363655

 

Great size Nimbochromis venustus if your looking to add to your colony.

10271592_10152323693388565_4529021143777

 

This stuff I cant say enough about.. You use bugger all and the price is AMAZING!

I have used this product since Ollie invented it, It is amazing stuff. I really cant say enough about it. You MUST try it out.
Cheap cheap cheap!!!! and they sell it in bulk buckets too. Great for the fish rooms.

10433946_10152323692683565_2024409276629

 

 

Some cool Lates calcarifer that reminded me of Finding Nemo :) (School of fish scene)

10538576_10152323692758565_2052324015737

 

These were the highlight for me.... If I had the room I wouldve bought the pair of them. A species you just dont see anymore, It would be a real shame to lose these.
Someone please buy them.

Some cool stuff to make your own water conditioners. Ask Rov, he'll tell you all about them.

10271506_10152323692653565_9039734587482

 

 

There was some really species to see, Some old skool ones that people should grab and breed before they are lost :(
I was really impressed with the quality and selection, Thanks again boys for letting me hold the fish there.
If I get some fry, I'll throw some your way, and I owe you a beer or two Ollie ;)

 

Get your butt's to Aquotix for some really cool stuff.

Thanks mate, Ive run out of room for pred's. Next lot of fish will be some more Mbuna (My favs :) ) I have some coming soon along with my Spilo's.

I also heard Aquotix have some Metriaclima barlowi. :wub: :wub:  But I forgot to ask Chris where they were :(


I think they still had some Shellies there too.

Ok. Those maylandia are one of my fav Mbunas.

A 120x36x46 wouldn't be big enough for any Malawi preds would it?

Aquotix barlowi pic, as requested.

I think the hajomaylandi are metriaclima, aren't they? And the neon rainbows- I always understood them to be melanotaenia praecox. I could be wrong though, as names change.

 

Anyways, some nice pix of some nice fish there. :)

Was good to have a chin wag Az. Your camera phone beats mine .

 

1. The Nimbos are livingstoni not polystigma

2. They are Melanotaenia not Dementia praecox. Dementia is my inability to remember everything I'm told :P

3. The barlowi were in the tank next to (on the left) of the tank full of hajos

 

M. barlowi are and I can't believe I'm saying this... A personal favourite Malawi Cichlid of mine. (Yes I admitted to liking a cichlid :P )


Here's a nice pic of one of them in the wild.

barlowi.jpg

 

Back when I kept them we had an ok digital camera. It was 1.3megapixels. Lets say it was more than 10 years ago ;) I have pics somewhere but they're not great.

Not long term. :( but it's a good reason to buy them and buy a bigger tank a little later.

Lol, I prefer JD's ;) thanks for those.

I'm still out of it when it comes to the name changes, it's been awhile ;)

3. The barlowi were in the tank next to (on the left) of the tank full of hajos.

Ahh shit they are too, you had polys there somewhere, I'm sure of it :/

Maybe I have a touch of dementia too lol

Damm, should've had a better look.

Only difference is that the Barlowi don't get black fins. :P
Ok nice knowing you all... I am now about to get booted into next week by Malawi fanatics. Haha :P

Just kidding, Mbunas are nice. Especially demasoni and maylandia.

Still prefer Americans, although I like Malawi predators the same as Americans if that makes sense.
