Pretty fishes!

I like the fish of 5th pic especially.
I am not used to English. Therefore,It is likely to sometimes misunderstand it.

Hi Mark, Great photo's of your healthy mature fish. The one of the Denisoni is a great capture as these would be one of the hardest fishes that I have ever tried to photograph - almost Mission Impossible with the resulting shots out-of-focus and/or blurred.
Thanks for sharing them with us.
Cheers Graeme.

So where are the baby Kubs? And all your other babies? A proud poppa should be showing off baby pics!

Just goes to show that sometimes the most common fish can be a true joy!
I love that giant danio!
I have to say that one of the most pleasant surpirses about my fishkeeping are danios....just the common little cheap zebras are really a lovely little fish, and such a work horse in the tank...running around with exuberance.
I think they would all need some ritalin if they had a "day job"!

They're all nice, but the Giant Danios are spectacular.

Found some of those danios at an LFS, and they're really stunning when swimming around. You can't always see the blue in them, but the next second they turn and show you all their pretty colors.
