We are two ornamental fish hobbyists, living in the southern part of Norway.
Martin is the one who knows how to make a website.  He is not keeping any fish for the moment.
Tom C is keeping lots of Apistogramma and Lebiasinidae (pencilfish). He has collected fish in the Peruvian Amazon on several occasions.
  

Here you will find stuff conserning dwarf-cichlids (mostly Apistogramma), characins (mostly Lebiasinidae =pencil fish), and a few others.
