Got a chance to pass by SM City today (thanks for the tip @zemper and @agimat) and had a good time watching the colorful display of different species of Flower Horns.
Kudos goes to the Iloilo Flowerhorn Society for putting up this exhibit. It’s always great to see fellow fish keepers showing the pride and joy of their collections, and a great way to get other people interested with the hobby!
And now without further ado, the snaps of today’s fish field trip.
A very brightly colored small Thaizz (Did i get the name right?). This little guy was as energetic as it can be, responding well to hand gestures from the people taking its picture. Feeding time you think?
A larg Thaizz: we had quite some time trying to get him to show his sides before finally taking this shot. Nice fish tank stand by the way.
Two thaizz’s side by side.
I forgot this guy’s species name but he had a really great coloring. Sure hope the stress of the display wouldn’t get to him.
Correct me if I’m wrong… KAMFA?
A large Thasilk Kamfa with the attitude lol.
This large australian green arowana reminds me of the 14” aro I lost a month ago.
Monster fish spotted! I know the exhibit was about flowerhorns, but as a monster fish keeper myself, I had to give homage to the big boys.
A closer shot shows 2 alligator gars and an albino pangassius catfish. The catfish is a rare sight so I really enjoyed watching it swim around the tank.
Good to see a lot of kids are interested with the hobby. There were also some bettas, goldfish and koi on display.
I’m looking forward to more fish exhibits this year so bring on the fish tanks! Sure hope I could join and show off my bichirs as well! Happy fish keeping!
