    The Wet Spot has these in stock now, another fish I've always been interested in but at 10 for $110.00!!!, I think I'll wait awile, LOL. One of the rarer pencilfish, Nannostomus espei.



    More information on them here: http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...98gWNv2L7yW_ew

    That's not a bad price at all, as it works out to $11 per fish. Pencilfish are expensive (except for the common beckfordi). I paid $15 each for my Nannostomus mortenthaleri and even more for the N. rubrocaudatus.

    I have been wanting N. espei for years; I had a group back in the 1980's but haven't seen them in stores since then. I see them online now and then, like at The Wet Spot and often Corys-R-Us, so they are available from time to time. And I agree a nice fish. The only species in the genus that maintains the "night pattern" of broken horizontal bars in the day; all other species in this genus have horizontal stripes that break up in darkness. [Matt mentions this in the profile you linked.]

    Almost worth a trip down to Portland...

    Sounds pricey at first, but there are some fish that demand that kinda prices. Denison barbs are around 20-25 here, so a school of ten will set you back like 200, which translates to appox $260 . . . .
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    Another video I found of them, showing how they interact with other fish.
