Collection of Cave Dwelling Fish and Critters from the Internets



Does anyone like cave fish?  I do.  These things are crazy looking.  Unfortunately, i have never kept any.  Some day I guess,  Also, i think that besides the Mexican blind tetra, most of them are protected 
species.  
Blind Spiny Eel (Mastacembelus brichardi)
I have seen these guys for sale on line a few time. So someone must still have them in his tank


Weird catfish from Clarius Family


Blind Labeo from Laos   Bangana musaei





Cryptotora thamicola or Waterfall Climbing Cave Fish
These guys don't actually swim, they climb cave walls. Very interesting animal from Thailand.

Some Cave Pupfish




Cave crustaceans 




World Famous Olm (Proteus anguinus)

Olms come from Slovenia caves (former Great Yugoslavia).  I think they are responsible for dragon folklore.  Most locals used to think that they were baby dragons.
