Ad has the most fantastic underwater photographs of fish in their native habitat. You'll really enjoy it, even if you aren't a rift lake fan.

How did this go? I noticed A. nijsseni on the list. Anyone have a female they want to sell/trade for an A. panduro female (although she's rearing fry at the moment - even if they are Apistogramma "nijduro"), or else a wild A. panduro male they want to trade for an A. nijsseni male?
I should probably be doing this on the market place but then I guess a post about the BCA isn't too bad a place to start.
