    I got a group of Aspidoras taurus From Mike Helwig. The barbels are shaped like bull's horn. They are nice fish

    I got a group Tangerine Tiger Shrimp from COSS.

    I also bought a group of Hawaiian Red Shrimp Halocaridina rubra. Some of these are really dark red.

    I picked up 9 super cool Xenotilapia melanogenys, a dozen Tropheus moorii moliro (red), another L66 pleco, and some sailfin mollies at the swap today. Also got what seemed like 500 Anubias nana that I've been tying to wood and planting all day. They probably only number in the 20s, but it looks like a lot and took all afternoon to put away. Megan gave me clown barbs for my birthday too!

    Dang, I was looking for some Xenotilapia or similar at the swap and didn't see them. Ended up getting some Tropheus instead. I still need a Tanganyikan mouthbrooder BAP for Ultimate breeder.

    I also got some Metriaclima lanisticola from Madtown, fancy guppies, and some great plants from Mark of Excellence plants.

    I was good at the swap today. Only bought two 4" L128 from Peter Durkin.

    I didn't see any xenos when i walked thru before it opened.

    I preordered the Xenotilapia melanogenys from Peter, and they were listed as Enantiopus, but I think Xenotilapia is the most current genus. I couldn't see hardly anything on the tables it was so crowded. Aside from the mollies, which turned out to be a pair of two males, everything I got was a preorder.

    Thanks for the offer Jeff. I already picked up the Tropheus to fill that void in my BAP points. I don't have another empty Tanganyikan tank to put them in unfortunately. But they are a really great looking fish.

    I am waiting on an order from Jeff Michels for some new Gymnogeophagus so my remaining empty tanks are already spoken for.

    MadTown got its first import order in this week, one Species I will attempt to get breeders out of and keep around will be chameleon whiptails, they came in about 8 inches long so should be breeding size already. Once they settle in and go through disease irradication (one was riddled with gill flukes) I will start working on coaxing them to spawn.
    I might keep a pair of the farlowellas to try to spawn them too.

    We will post a list of what we have in quarantine soon and check our YouTube later today for our unboxing video
