I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

PM received. I haven't taken pics in quite a while so this was a great excuse to break out the camera. I didn't remove the algae from the from acrylic so excuse the green spots and not all oddballs wanted to come out for me.

Start off with a 14" heterotis niloticus

lepidosiren paradoxa messing around in the overflow

tubby polypterus ornatipinnis

polypterus lapradei actually towards the front of the tank today

polypterus palmas polli, polypterus palmas buettikoferi & Datnioides microlepis

100 gallon grow out with polypterus weeksii & megalodoras uranoscopus

That should hold Lupin off for a while.

great pics gump...

man i wish i had money and room to get some bigger tanks.

i have never seen half of the fish there. i have only seen 1 tiger datinoid i guess my lfs shops just dont carry the unique stuff and the fact that florida outlaws most of the good stuff because of people releasing them into the wild is a restraint..



hey lupin dont u have alot of these kind of fish? where some pics of your tanks?

Ummm..Gump, where's the Tatia perugiae? I want that pic. Okay, it isn't much of an oddball but I like the cute face to pass with.

I haven't taken new photos.LOL Senegal bichir and tire track eel are all I have at the moment. The rest are loaches, plecos, synos, cichlids and characins. None of these are even oddballs to me. The hillstream loaches probably are but still classified cyprinids. I do have photos of them in my documents. I can post them later if you like.

BF I only got one of those fish from my lfs. If you want the odd stuff your lfs aren't going to be much help.

Lupin I did take one pic of the cat for you yesterday but this is his daily spot.

I don't generally buy oddballs. I concentrate more on fish that are hardly available in my area. At the moment, I have four plecos, two of which are often overlooked and still waiting for a new one. Not sure if you would consider them oddballs so I didn't include them here.
