Red Lizard Whiptail Catfish
For all you Whiptail fans, and fans of the rare and very unusual in catfish--you might want to check out a rather unique and very beautiful red whiptail. I recently acquired a trio of these, so I have now added the species to our profiles [ click Rineloricaria sp. L010a]. As noted therein, whether or not this is a natural "wild" species is uncertain. The photo below will whet your appetite:-D.

I want one! That beauty now makes my whiptail look boring.

One of my local stores, Petland actually. In researching for the profile, I spotted them in another store online, out in Abbotsford. I think I came across them years ago in a store but paid no real notice. Keep your eyes peeled; this species is commercially raised so if they are available here they might be available in other places in NA too.

Managed to get a photo of one of mine just now.

This is too cute! I want one now! :)
I finally got to see one in real life this weekend and I fell in love. I wish I had room for one..

Thought I'd share a couple photos from a few moments ago. Two of the "red" trio were beside the older Whiptail, feeding on some tablets. Mr. Bolivian Ram is overseeing the proceedings in the first photo.
