I Found This Mean Guy...

I was walking through the LFS and they had some new fish in. I happened to look over this guy:


He is a vampire tetra. I went to look them up, and I found that they turn into this:


Yeah, scary! Just wanted to share!

A fish like this I would expect to find in local LFS around me. There is one that gets gar[assorted], Phriana's, vampire tetra's, Arowana's, ect. Actually, I have a picture of a large arowana and assorted gar at the LFS.

They had 2 or 3 Arowanas there too. I thought that it was a bit over done. They usually have 1 Arowana in stock. I was shocked with their stock, and slightly scared too!

Also, those are some large fish in those pictures! I couldn't imagine owning one of them.
