I had off work today so my son and i did a little LFS tour or adventure as he would say it. We were planning on going to 4 lfs in new jersey but didnt make it to all of them. We had a blast just the guys anyway we are in shark aquarium and another guy is there with his son kid must have been 10yrs old. The guys says how his son doesnt know what he wants ...kid looked lost and un insterested. While we are talking my son taps me on the hand points to a tank with a wolf fish in it and says "i wish they werent carnivores i want one but it would eat our pearsei" lol the guys looked at my son in bewilderment lol. Any way here are some pics of what we saw

That looks like an nice store, is it common that they have Urau on stock? Also for the rest of stock this looks like an more exclusive store as an standart chain. ( excluding the ugly Discus breeds)

The pics were from 2 different stores but yes urau are common at on of them. I thought the discus were beautiful but to each is own.

Interesting story there is a niger catfish in the koi pond that was dropped off by a regular at the store. The guy was going in for surgery and asked that they look after the cat...he ended up passing away during the surgery and the owner felt like selling the fish was wrong so he kept it. That was 12 yrs ago

Discus can be really nice but not that color breeds, also not the Stendker lines. Here as an example the natural coloration of Discus



There is nothing to improve but i am also strictly against things like Glowfish.

For that Urau, i had bought him and 3 to 4 others :laugh:

In LFS stores yes, they are mostly only available on direct importers or ordering online but than they are still expensive. Wild caught Urau fernandezyepezi would cost at least around 150 Euros so 220 USD, bigger ones could also be around 250 Euros per fish. An F1 amphiacanthoides with only 1.5 inches would be still like 40 bugs.

Wow! Some really cool fish in those stores. I should probably be grateful that I don't have access to a store like that. ;) I think it is awesome that you and your son enjoy the hobby together. My youngest daughter likes my Carpintis, but only because he goes stark raving mad anytime she gets close to the tank.

I'd be divorced living out of my car, with a 10g betta tank strapped into the shot gun seat!
