Some Interesting Oddballs

In Some Interesting Oddballs on January 17, 2011 at 5:19 am

Was testing flash/camera combo today (Olympus FL-40 with Panasonic FZ50).. Got some nice shots of some interesting fish.. Most of them at Aquatic Kingdom.. some of them my own fish.. a couple at BA Brampton..

I like the flash with this camera.. Much better control over lighting than flash I was using before.. Most of these pix taken with flash set to manual mode, f9.0-10.0, shutter speed 1/125

Yunnanilis brevis

Bitterlings - the flash brings out yellow on the head that you can't really see without the flash.

Super nice Apistogramma borelli

This guy with the split dorsal is a really angry little fish

Fighting with everybody

A young Neolamprologus brichardi "Jumbo Fulwe Rocks"

Even younger jumbos

Emerald Rasbora - Very cool little dwarf

Galaxy Rasbora

This guy was labelled "Halloween Flowerhorn"

Cryptoheros nanoluteus x Amatitlania siquia

These little hybrids are colourful

Humphead Glassfish

Crazy colourful pipefish

Odd little tetra

Sicyopterus species

Underslung mouth perfect for scraping algae off rocks

Males will probably colour up nicely at breeding time

Another algae-eating goby (freshwater) - Stiphodon sp.

Great colour on the cheeks

And yet another Stiphodon species

These little Uarus look like they might develop some nice orange on the sides

Not really anything special, but nice fish nonetheless

Oddball loach that actually swims midwater

These next two were seen at BA Brampton…

Tiny little glassfish, only about 1/2 inch long.. they might be Parambassis lala, but too young to tell..

Scarlet Badis - Dario dario.. still in the bag.. nice little fish..
