This was the biggest Fish store I have been to yet, but amazingly no African cichlids! Sorry for the shaky camera I am using a lens adapter, so no AIS, also sorry for the focus hunting, I was using a very shallow depth of field to try and avoid going to higher iso and more grain. Unfortunately after 30 minutes of pic taking, I just switched to video and grabbed these before being told by an employee no photos, so I never got to dial in my settings. Some nice fish nevertheless ;)

for some reason the vimeo insertion code is not working on this site, so you'll have to click on the links. Sorry.

Dre, I have actually been trying to find info on the rules for shipping into Japan. You can carry them in on a plane with absolutely no fees or customs, so I am hoping the shipping laws are relaxed too, but it is very hard to find this information since I don't read Kanji let alone understand most Japanese.

TR6 there is a Zebra Pleco in there I would like your opinion on. It looked nice to me, and was about 2 inches, for 20,000 yen ($225). I am very tempted to try and breed these here since they don't need a very big tank if I remember right.

Now for a BUNCH of pics from the same day. Believe me this was me trying to reduce the number of pics, but it is easier said than done. BTW the most expensive Discus they had was more like $300, but you can see the juvies are a bit more reasonable starting around $30 but as high as $90. They have deals though for buying small groups, and there was even a reject tank where you could get like 5 for $30 I think, a couple looked decent, but most had notable issues (still great colors though).

I actually found a yen to USD conversion, and I came up with those Discus being around $125 for those that were curious.

@TwistedSister Yeah 9800 is the price for those spotted eruption juveniles, if I got the name right. They were the most expensive Juvies that I saw. If I had the funds and confidence with Discus I would probably buy 5 of them cause they were amazing. The conversion rate changes allot, if it is $125 USD = 10,000 Yen right now it's good news for me, as it was more like $115 = 10,000 last month. The lower the dollar the less Yen I have to pay on my storage bill :D

I think you are correct on the type of discus, Penang Eruption or "Super" eruption some call them.

Thank you for sharing the pictures and videos!
