    Default My Cuipeua got award in fish show!

    Hi everyone,

    We have a quite active aquarium society here in Southeast Louisiana (SELAS). Today they had their second Fish Show and Auction:

    It was a small event with four categories: New World, Old World, Catfish and Other. I brought one of my Wild Cuipeuas to the show:

    He was quite dark with all the stress of the transportation, but still showing his nice striations. He received the People's Choice Award:

    The New World Award went to a small Pigeon Blood:

    The judges did not like my Cuipeua but the people did! Award came with $50 in cash and $50 in gift cards. One day I will come to NADA
