Black Friday in LA

Post by Biulu on Fri Nov 28, 2014 11:25 pm

After a very long flight from Hongkong I arrived in LA today around midday local time. In order to get used to the new time as soon as possible, I decided to do some Black Friday fish shopping. In a local store I found 3 Trichopsis vittata (croaking gourami) for sale. It looks as if I got 2 males and 1 female. Neat cousins of the sparklers!

Here are some (bad) pictures of the fish in their bag.

Cool!!!! Nah, I had to fight the crowds as our washing machine in our kennel quit. No specials on washers but I did manage to snag a coupon for interest free credit for one year. Thank you black Friday!!!

Croaking Gouramis? If I'd gone shopping on Black Friday, I probably would have croaked!

Nice find, nice fish.

Congratulations! That is the size I want for the living room as well. Where did you get it? New or second hand?

Thanks! My bag stayed in Detroit so the fish came about 24 hours later. The 2 males had a clamped anal fin (tail) and need to put some weight on. Today though, they are already much better. The weight will take a few more days though....
