    actually, these little beauties first go from Germany to an authorized dealer in Taiwan, and then ship to its authorized dealer in Hong Kong... it is quite indirect :)

    Mike is right, in Apistoworld(HK)'s first thread, the last fish is a male gibbiceps. :)

    yes awesome fish , is the lack of lateral line a mood thing only or is that just to do with selectie breeding ?
