    In the spirit of the "What spawned for you today" thread, I think it would be fun to share what new fish you bought, traded, or picked up today.

    Me? I have a box sitting at home with two pair of Crenicichla regani "Tapajos" that eat flake food! I also have 8 Cryptoheros nanoluteus. A very pretty little convict type fish that I would like to work with. I can't wait to swing by the house during lunch to see them.

    Nanoluteus are one of my faves, mine are coming up on spawning size. Centrarcus as well

    I just finished tanking the fish, they all arrived in great shape. The C. nanoluteus are only in the 1" to 1.5" size, so spawning will be a ways off. The C. regani are really big. The last time I got them in they were barely 2", these are pushing 4". I hope to have better luck with them this time around.

    5 German Blue Ghost Angels nickel to quarter size. They will also be a while before spawning.

    Got some more discus yesterday. Who would have thought that I, a african cichlid fan, would fall for a discus LOL

    My cw120's from Frank Falcone arrived yesterday, 2 out of 6 died in route, this was his second attempt to get them to me. Added bonus, he tossed in 8 red coral pencilfish, I already have them, but I believe I had a male heavy group, after adding his to the group, I think it will be a much more ballanced group.

    I have NEVER seen these for sale locally and whenever I try to get them online they are always sold out.

    Will went fishing and brought back a bunch of his bait fish, which are currently housed in the 20H. Thinking about bringing them to the meeting.... I don't know anything about them except that they're skittish and really active :) And some of them have cool markings.

    Naw. I think they're just fatheads, but some of them have cool spots down their backs.
