Hi,

Just thought id share a few pics of what kind of cats i am keeping and a pic of my 2 cat tanks smile.gif

This is my main tank and ive dedicated it to catfish, cory`s, whiptails and peppermint bristlenose reside in here although this pic would make you wonder if there are any fish in there at all, anyway a 7x2x2 give the cory`s plenty of room smile.gif



A few pics of the fish that live in here !


C.concolor & C.aeneus "gold shoulder"



C.blochi



C 142



C.sterbai & C 142



C.polystictus



My jumbo 7cm female sterbai smile.gif



Albino bristlenose longfin male.



I bought these as L010a but id is being disputed atm, what do you think ?



Peppermint bristlenose




Cheers smile.gif

You have some nice Cory's there, nice and healthy looking smile.gif I don't think that it is L10A either, looks a bit like Rineloricaria eigenmanni. By the way I like your background to your tank, real prehistoric looking!

Thanks Allen smile.gif

Oops i meant L10a smile.gif

The background was done for me by a member of our cichlid society here in perth and turned out really well, my next job for that tank is replacing all that substrate with stuff we have here called eco complete which is a soil/finer type substrate with nutrients in it for the plants , and it will be black so should look good.

You guys get some nice cory`s over there , I was trying to get C.Duplicareus for about a year and finally gave up as they never came in !

Will look up what you think that whiptail is smile.gif

Thanks
Craig

Just back last night from a great Catfish Study Group auction and C.duplicareus was one of the lots. If I can remember right there was only one pair for sale. I am quite happy that I got a male C.panda for my three females...they will be more than happy wink.gif
