Killifish in Lake Tanganyika
Our friend, John in San Diego, sent us an email from his friend, Arcadio, who'd gotten an email from his friend, Manuel Salazar, who'd been to Lake Tanganyika in Central East Africa. In Lake Tanganyika Manuel had taken the two pictures, shown above, of the Tanganyika Killifish, Lamprichthys tanganicus. Special thanks to John, Arcadio, and Manuel for these beautiful pictures of a spectacular fish. Please note that these pictures remain the property of Manuel Salazar and are used here with permission but remain protected by international copyright laws.
A Nice Young Siamese Algae Eater
Fish in the News from Myron in Iowa
I have found a link to an odd fish at the bottom of an ocean trench. http://www.physorg.com/ ... world-deepest-ocean.html
To have one of these in an aquarium I would need:
A saltwater system that is pressurized to 10,200 psi.
A method to heat it to an unknown temperature
A way to get the food in
A way to clean it without losing pressure
Figure out how to get oxygen in the water (if it needs any).
Some gasses become liquids at these pressures.
An infinite amount of money and no light.
If I can't have plants, I am not doing it.

Jay from Evansville, Indiana, calls and talks about why he is shutting down the fish room that he began building 3-1/2 years ago. He also mentions that he'd like to sell the whole system at a fair price to anyone who wants to buy it. Click here to contact Jay at his website.
