New horsies

Post by Mad Duff » Sat Jul 18, 2009 12:56 pm

I called into a local shop today, I wasn't planning on it but popped in as I was passing.

There wasn't much in to be honest and then I came across a tank with some lovely Horse Faced Loaches in, all these fish are between 4" & 5" SL.

As per usual with this shop there were no prices on the tanks, I asked the assistant and he thought they were around £8 each but didn't know so he gave me them for the same price as the red tail loaches in the tank below £4 each :lol:

So I decided to treat myself to 5

Yeah they do need a little TLC, they have already had a good feed of Bloodworm and white midge larvae

One of my very favorite fish. :) The only problem is I only see mine at dinner time.

Beautiful fish mate, even though they might need a little TLC the colours are much brighter then what i encounter in the LFS' here
