All the Different Cichla Species

Can anyone name all these Cichla species without looking them up?  he he.  I can't.  But it's a great poster (I did not make it).  It would be nice to have a full collection in a giant aquarium.  It would have to be 1000-2000 gallon tank as these cichlids get huge)))  Some day, I guess)))

Native American Snails))

It got warmer and I went to lake Isabella  in Cincinnati Ohio for walk with my mom. Obviously, I went looking for local fish and snails.  Here are some pretty crappy photos of the native US snails.  I am not sure what they are.  They looked pretty neat.  Sure, not as colorful as nerites or other tropical snails, but still, always interesting)))

Fly River Turtle or Carettochelys insculpta at Aquatics and Exotics

Check out this cool Fly River Turtle (Carettochelys insculpta) I at Acquatics and Exotics. It's a fish only store in Cincinnati Ohio. They also 17000 gallon concrete aquarium with 3 black tip shark. It was my first time seeing this turtle in person. I have seen a bunch of photos and videos of the Fly River Turtle or Pignosed Turtle online. In person, it looks way cooler. The only bad part is that it was in a completely bared aquarium

Cincinnati Nature : French Park

Check out this nice biotope photos I took at French Park in Cincinnati, Ohio.  I went back to US to visit my parents and of course decided to see some nature.  I am a really bad photographer, so I was not able to get all the tiny minnows that live in this creek.  French Park is also home to tiny black salamanders and small native American crayfish.

Giant Unknown Bichirs

I don't care what anyone says, I am moving to Africa.  Just look at this pictures.  These guys have these amazing giant bichirs (Polypterus sp) just swimming around there.  All you have to do is go out and catch one.  Check out the size on them.  I am not sure which exact species of bichirs these are.  I am guessing these are Polypterus bichir.

These bichir must be close to a meter long))

    Looks like they also have African Arowana (Heterotis niloticus ) there.  Amazing.

If anyone know the exact name of these giant bichirs, let me know)))
