    A new loricariid from the Amazon. I'm not a big fan of this kind of fish but I know most everyone else loves them. So if you are interested here is a link for a short article about the newly described Aphanotorulus rubrocauda

    When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.

    I like plecos, but this isn't one I would go out to grab. Can see how it fits in a fast flowing stream though, its very elongated. Thank you for sharing that find.
    Two 5.5g- Shrimp tanks; 1st with Bloody Mary and Rose shrimp and 2nd with Blue Dream shrimp
    Two-55 gallon tubs, 1st w/ 1BN pleco male, 3 clown pleco, gouramis, kuhli and female betta; 2nd w/female BN pleco, albino, panda and pgymy corys, and male betta.
    One tub with 90% plants and one Diva-pea puffer.

    It sort of reminds me of a long finned rubber lip color morph. The genus they placed it in has species that are medium sized to large so it's probably not suitable for most aquariums, that's if it ever legally makes it into the hobby.

    Little too long in the face, lol. And the forked fins just make it look odd. I do like the rubber-lips though.

    Yup, I read about fish and fish related stuff every chance I get through out the day. Gotta learn somehow.
