Heres' my new Ctenopoma Acutirostre. She's in my QT tank right now. I named her Spook. I don't usually name all my fish but sometimes a name just comes to me. Also, I'm not certain it's a female but I'm not seeing any spines in the gill area. Is this a sure way to sex these fish? She's about 3" right now.

Here are some pics of the sparkling gouramis I use to have. Beautiful little gems. They spawned for me once and had fry, but I had no success in raising them. Loved watching them. I slowly lost them one by one for some reason. I hope to get some more eventually. Also Here is a video I took of two males displaying and making the clicking/croaking sound. Probably the best video I've ever taken. I never got tried of watching them do that, you could here it across the room.

I knew they could make noise when I got them. Though the web described it as croaking. IMO frogs make a croaking sound. It took me a week to figure out what was making that sound. I figure out pretty quickly that it was coming from some where around the fish tank. I wasn't able to put the rapid clicking sound I heard with "croaking". I was sitting buy the tank watching them one day when they started clicking. Then I felt like an idiot. Who wouldn't of suspect the fish of making noise

Now I want to know how they make that sound! For the life of me I can't figure it out. Two fish have to touch just slightly and one vibrates its body and you somehow get a rapid clicking that you can hear from about 15 feet away. I've had guests notice it. They give me weird looks when I say,"It's just the fish".

When I first got my loaches I'd hear clicking at feeding time and assumed it was being caused by their wafers or pellets hitting upside the acrylic. Then one morning they raced out and started that noise before the food hit the tank. I think it's so interesting when fish make sounds. You have a great collection of fish!
