Some new fish

Went and bought some new fish for my tank today – a sun catfish (Horabagrus brachysoma) and a lace catfish (Synodontis sp.). I admit to having a certain liking for catfish species. These two will join my peppered corys (Corydoras paleatus) and common plec (Hypostomus punctatus) at the bottom of the tank, while the top and mid-layers have a mixture of danios, guppies and swordtails. I think I need a bigger tank :)

    Just to change the subject. How do you find out whether your fish are captive-bred or captured? The goobers at my local aquaria stores are clueless dissemblers and I’m kind of concerned about the destructive effects of large scale ornamental fish trapping.
