Hi, all...

I'd like to introduce you my green room... it's a small place, in my office... that's my point of sanity, and the place where I can chill out a little bit, smoking a cigarrette, or just thinking about nothinh... it's quite relaxing starting the day feeding the fishes, checking and trimming the plants...

There i have some of my Apistogramma and my Characins, and also where I can make some experiments.


Battery 01
















Apistogramma sp "viel fleck" male


Apistogramma sp "viel fleck"

Blue tail strain

Some other ones...




Planted nano...

If I had your office I'd work one our a day and spent the rest with the tanks/plants/fish

Amazing, thanks for sharing.

Very beautiful pics Reinaldo!!!
My favourite ones are all from the many Apistogramma, but the really favourite one is from the abacaxis.... I like very much of that fish (it looks like a mean fish lol )

The Boraras are also very beautiful....

Any update???

Congrats! :clap2:

Hi, Guys!! Sorry this long time without visiting... I've been kind of busy with some newelties in my tanks... soon I will take some more pictures and update this thread.

Dan, it's quite easy... just keep acquiring tanks, one by one... take a free room, and just use it!! Lol

Britzke!! Hi, nice to see you here... I have some fries, now... i will see if I can take some pictures, I have some A. elizabethae and T. candidi babies in my tanks, now... also got some new fishes, too...

Tex, now i have around 50 tanks... but it's growing a little bit more, because a friend of mine is going to live in Germany, and I will get his tanks... about 7 more tanks... let's see if I can handle them...

Pinto, not at all, actually... most tanks are breeding tanks, so I can keep them with few light... also, we are in a tropical country, so i almost do not need electrical heating, and I use gas heating, in winter...

Rwong2k, I'm also an Apisto addicted, really love them... now I do get some different ones (2 pairs of Apistogramma bitaeniata "careiro" - blue body and yellow fins) and I'm thinking about Apistogramma acrensis... but most of my new fishes are tetras or ciprinidae...

Sorry, again, for being away!
ASAP, I'll update this with new pictures!!

Thank you for your kind comments!!

Reinaldo, extremely beautiful tanks. BTW, are all of you buddies in São Paulo biologists? And every one of you are taking amazing pictures.

Keep them coming. I'm loving them.

I think I'm officially envious...I really like it.

Does anyone know if Hyphessobrycon amapaensis and Hyphessobrycon heterorhabdus are available in the hobby? They both remind me of black neons and glowlights.

are all your fish wild caught?

Hey, Darksome,

I've got no idea if it is easily found where you live, but sometimes, here, in LFS, it's kind of common to get these ones... H. heterorhabdus, here is aka Fake Ulrey Tetra, maybe you should search for this name.

Mine one were collected by a friend of mine, who livs in Pará State, north region of Brazil. Recently he made a small trip to an "igarapé" and took some pictures. Please check it out here

Regards
