Here's a pic of the newest addition to my 75 gal tank. The tank has mostly Bosemanni Rainbows and tiger barbs in it, other odds and ends.

I got this last week at a Local Fish Shop with no real ID - is it probably ?Typhlonectes natans? as I read thats the most commonly imported.

I have read the posts about the import limitations...my LFS owner tells me they have no difficulty ordering them from their wholesaler like any item on their lists.

It is very interesting- about 12 inches, moderately cryptic but comes out whenever food is introduced- it likes sinking shrimp pellets, and there are blackworms living in the substrate for snacks. So far it's peaceful...hopefully the tiger barbs and rainbows can evade it for awhile.
