Eye Biters

Post by Jason Dolting on Sat Aug 07, 2010 5:03 am

I recieved a phone call during the week from a lfs informing me that some Eye Biters had come into stock that I had on order a couple of months ago and asking if I still wanted any. "Yes I sure do man what are you crazy or something?" is how I wanted to reply but " yes please" were the words that come out. "How many would you like?" was the next question. "every last one what are you crazy man or something" was what I was thinking but on asking the price wich by the way was a small fortune but worth it because I absolutely dig these fish and they are hard to get I replied with "just 2 please". So I have 2 eye biters that I don't even know the proper name of cause I was so excited about aquiring some that I forgot to look for there names but I am hoping somebody can let me know based on the blurry photos posted below. No I still haven't done that background for my tank either.Rolling Eyes

I wasn't sure if there was more than one variant of this fish.
Yes I have to agree. Its not only an interesting, menacing looking fish. It has a pretty unique hunting style as well with a built to hunt, ambushing style, this fish is paper thin from a front on or back on view and any unsuspecting smaller fish just wouldn't see it coming until it was too late. I'm very happy with them.

Nice fish! I love my big guy, even though he has his moments -- he gets a bit feisty after water changes!

Yes I'm stoked. The owner asked me ages ago what fish I was after and took my name and number but a few months had passed and i didn't think anymore about it. The store has just recieved a big supply of nice Africans. I'm just not ready yet to buy more as I still have work to do on a tank hood that also needs lids and a heater. It all comes down to that great evil money. Evil or Very Mad
