Many thanks to Emma for her help i must say. :)

I drove up the Ashington(20min drive)today and met Tom and we had a great chat. He only had three left and i just wanted the two, but of course i couldn't leave just one on it's own. He imports some fascinating fish i must say! The rarer the better he says. Practical Fishkeeping magazine often take pictures of his fish once a month and add them in the "Interesting Imports" section of the magazine. And one of my new Vaillantella maassi is in the new Practical Fishkeeping issue. Emma, Tom told me he sent you a freebie V.maassi! Very nice! :) He's getting some Pangio shelfordii in next week. I might be tempted to buy a couple. Another interesting fact about Tom is that he was the supplier of 15 Botia Kubotai's for Dr Maurice Kottelat so that he could use his Taxonomy on them.

Looks like i'm going to be hanging around late at night for a decent picture of them. Here's a bad shot of them in the bag.
