Returning to my favorite fish store, and one that just happens to sit on top of a massive african cichlid hatchery. This time Dave Hale shows us around his storefront as well, along with a separate building that’s offsite that you’ve never seen before. This is a long video but it’s worth it.

The black ray goby – now named Winonia! – has gotten bold enough to move to the front of the tank! She’s already sharing pistol shrimp with Yoshi, I’m hoping they’ll start living together!
