Great fish photos as always Frank. The photos/video of people at the Extravaganza are also nice to view. Thanks for sharing them.

Lovely photos, Frank. I especially like the one of the zebra loach, it seems to happen every year that a loach springs from its tank during the night.

What a great show fish that loach was...a natural. Its last move was to strike a pose! It should have at least gotten points for excellent deportment!!

Thanks for helping solidify the memories, Frank.

I was wondering if anybody would notice the shot of the loach on top of the tank. I was considering it for People's Choice Award, but in the end I found the Firemouth with the enormous attitude in the second image simply irresistible. Extravaganza was a great event again - like every year!

That's the placement in the heavy weight class (New World over 6"), and those fish are shown in image 1, 3, and 4 in that order. Scott Myers' Amphilophus hogaboomorum also took Best of Show. Image 2 is a Thorichthys meeki, which won the People's Choice Award - plenty of attitude in that fish :D
