Hi, I know I'm not really a new member....more like returning member.
I now live in Guangzhou, China. This city is home to the largest aquarium fish market in China....the place has to be seen to be believed.
They have EVERY fish you could ever want here, no exaggeration.
There are maybe 300+ shops all in one place, with each one tending to specialise in a certain type of fish. The pleco sections are the most fascinating, and I've seen pleco's, and bristlenoses, that I've never ever seen before. I will have to get photos and see if you guys can ID them.
As for my setup, a HEAVILY planted tank with a shoal of neon tetras, guppies, and most importantly, two very long finned albino bristlenoses, with cool blue eyes. They're very yougn now, but hopefully they'll breed later on. I'll get some snaps of them and put them up soon!
