class pics, thanks for sharing. That is some red tail cat you have, and love the Pacu aswell, was jaw dopped when i saw them in London Zoo they where near 2 foot, looked amazing. Are you passing them on cause of their size? Im sure youll miss them.

Im sure the van felt alot lighter on the way home lol

Great to meet you today Brian. Those fish were amazing..

It was a great laugh seeing Ian getting soaked from head to foot by the pacu.

Had to admire your bravery too Brian, you're probably the ony person I know that reacts to a 15 foot escaped python by picking it up. I was ready to run eyes I did rescue those two escaped fish though tongue

Looked like you were doing well picking up lots of nice fish, AV is a great spot for oddballs. What fish did you end up bringing home?

The RTC soaked Ian but that was nothing compared to the pacu, he must have sent a hundred litres of water over him. Brilliant. yep Stopped him talking crap for a while too which was even better wink

Fantastic to see AV stocking lots of unusual fish again, always something weird in stock and more than likely something weird going on too...
