    My green spot ancistrus was bred by a guy who works there!
    They also have beautiful freshwater rays which are sooooooo tempting

    Joe (Snowaddict) used to keep freshwater rays. He had one that looked like it had musical notes on it and his biggest was 26inches across i think :)
    Lovley looking fish, very unusual (and expensive!)
