    Default Fish shipment (need ID)

    Since I finally is starting to get setup here i got my first batch of fish yesterday. All Wild caucht and all from Nicaragua. The fish was horridly packed (perhaps not suprising as they aren´t pros). About 10 inch fish per L of water.

    This did unfortunately mean that all Amphilophus alfari (Rio Dulce) was DOA. Will make trip there myself later on to collect more as it is a wonderful strain with a lto of pruple and green shimmering bodies.

    The pics below do not make them justice.




    Besides the unfortunately DOA Alfari I recieved 10 jags, 10 motaguense, 1 convict (bycatch), 12 (8 doa) of what i think is Rhamdia nicaraguensis. (se pic below) Can nayconfirm ID?



    As well as a couple of other oddballs.

    I am sorry to only have pics of the DOA now. I will post more pictures but at the moment my priority is getting the rest back to health

    Those are wild caught by a company or someone else?

    You plan to make the trip yourself and go dip netting and collect whatever species your looking for?

    I live in Nicaragua so they are caught by fishermen. They pack a part of their for me instead of putting them with the regular landings. Cichlids are appricated food and are caught from about 4 inch in lenght. They do taste good. I do however go out collecting myself as well and have expeditions planned.
    Do as I say. Not as I do.

    Nope. No wild angeles. You need to go a lot further south for that. To find native populations that is. I am sure you can find populations of wild angeles here put they are all introduced.
