    Thanks so much, Wendy! Great shots. Had a bunch of stuff in tow on the way there and forgot my Nikon.

    By all means, dominate away!

    That was indeed my betta, and it is a Dumbo Betta. I bought him from one of my wholesalers, Segrest, who also supplied a lot of donated fish to the Catfsih Convention (he wasn't a donation! :).

    He did win best among Bettas, but the Pearl Gourami beat him for best in class. It was an awesome Pearl.

    The catfish after him is mine as well, and he won diddly squat. He's a yellow bullhead ... and if anyone has a tank for him, let me know.... He lives in his own 29-gallon, and I'd be willing to part with him. He will eat small fish. But he's seriously cool.

    The killie at the very bottom was the Fundolopanchax that stole Best In Show among the Freshwater Fish. GORGEOUS fish.

    That was my telescope-eye goldfish which won first in the goldfish and koi category. Great photo Wendy. Thank you.

    That fish was shipped to me from Louisiana from a friend's spawn and was the size of a pea when I got it. It's about five or six years old now and is the size of a grapefruit. He lives in a 125 gallon tank with 8 other fancy-tail varieties and eats all the duckweed we can grow for him. :)

    I'll dig up some more when I get a few min. I had a lot of fun taking them and playing with lighting using my awesome human flash stand (thank you, Ethan).
