Loaches in Recent Shows

Hi all, I live in Kitchener, which is in South-Western Ontario, Canada. In the last few weeks I have shown some loaches in shows at various Aquarium clubs in the area. First, was a Clown loach in Sarnia on 12 September: http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c258/zenins/KWAS%20Events/Sarnia_Show_Auction_...
