Freshwater exotics?

    What's the most exotic fish you've had in your tank?
    I've been told there are freshwater Stingrays?
    & rumors are floating around that there's a freshwater seahorse, but know one I've spoke has actually seen one of them.

    If you have pictures that would be even better, I'm on my phone as I post this & I have no idea how to post pictures from my phone.

    Thanks. :)

    Yeah, but that's also what makes the so cool!
    Are they easy fish?
    Brackish?
    Delicate?

    Looking at google seems there might actually be seahorses & stingrays?
    I'd wonder about how easy or high maintenance they need?

    There are stingers that I saw for sale at pet solutions, but they were sold out. I would love a freshwater seahorse, seems so cool:)>

    Currently in my tank it would have to by the Parkensoni Rainbows. I haven't seen many places with them for sale around here.

    In my tank, my most exotic fish is a Bonsai Kilin Flowerhorn. I don't know if that qualifies for exotic.... probably not.

    i guess you can say they are similar, though darters are no where near as cool :p. The Blue panaque is a cool species of pleco.

    Yes very cool, but proving a pain in the rear to feed.

    The person that sold them to me said they would eat algea wafers and zucchini, but they won't take it , they have only eaten the algea on the tank. After reasearching on line, I found out that most of them are wild caught and hard to get them to take prepared foods. I am trying a method now that I found online, I will let everyone know if it works.
