While I was at Pet Magic Bibra Lake the other day, I took out the trusty S95 and snapped a few fish. The usual 10% discount applies for club members.

 

What immediately caught my eye is the nicest firemouth cichlid (thorichthys meeki) pair I have seen. They are adult and quite large. I would have bought them had I a spare tank for them. I think they were $90 the pair.

dimidiochromis compressiceps at $14.95 or 3 for $35

tandanus tandanus $18.95

lates calcarifer (barramundi) $6.95

Dwarf flame gourami $12.95 (so shoot me, I like gourami!)

Large discus $110 - 2 or more $99 ea

Here is a random angel :)

PM Bibra has a great tank of oddballs and tankbusters by the front door. It has butokoferi, petenia, barra peacock bass and other neat stuff. Unfortunately it's really really hard to photograph in its position. Well worth a look if you are into big fish, though.

This fish shop is in my top 3 next to the two big shops south of the river.
The fish dude there (Cody?) is a very helpful guy

I don't usually go for tank buster tanks, but the display tank at the front is awesome to look at

Nice pics kleinz

Nah wife wanted me to, but I was adamant that I would stick to the west African biotope. Well the biotope idea has since gone out the window, and I highly doubt they would still be available.
Thinking about getting some of their Peru angelfish (wild form colour angelfish) as I don't like the look of the man made coloured fish like koi angels etc

Something tells me I got the bargain of the century ;)

I reckon pet magic is brilliant. Not local but worth the visit... Definitely not just another chain store.

Plus PCS Discount.

They aren't true Altum Angel fish, but sure are nice
They do get a regular supply from someone locally

Altums? Dunno. I know Vebas have some in their front planted display tank, but you've got Buckley's chance of getting them

Saw a dozen or so of juvenile neon blue acaras on the weekend. Would have got some if I had some tank space.
