    Love my Dantum angels. Fairly dumb fish though.... They corner themselves when my hand goes into the tank and go into a total tail-spin if I get any closer. Rather than try to escape, they push into the corner as if the glass may part, sort of like the Red Sea..

    It was sold to me as a butterfly pleco. I can see how they coined that name. Egg is on my face though for not checking.

    It's not a pleco. It's a Hillstream loach

    Your collection of fish are absolutely beautiful. I have been thinking of scaling down in aquarium size and have a community like yours. if I may ask what size is your aquarium also would love to see a full tank shot. keep up the good work :cool:

    Haha.... You recognise your babies anywhere hey? They really do give me a lot of pleasure.

    I use a Nikon D7000 camera, usually with a 105mm macro lens or 10,5mm fisheye lens.
