Leptobotia taeniops!

Post by Graeme Robson » Wed Sep 07, 2011 8:52 am

Emma & I recently received a shipment of Leptobotia taeniops. They are absolutely stunning! We bought several of them home to our fish room. Here are some pics taken when they arrived at the shop and when we acclimatised some at home. I'll add better pictures later, but here's a little taster! 8) 8) 8)

This last pic is not the best, but it shows just how luminous the dorsal surface can become! 8)

Those fish have incredible patterns. I can see how they would help them blend in with the substrate.

Ah, one day I'll have room for all of these amazing fish.
