This amazon river fish collecting trip was awesome. This village was especially cool because a bunch of the people who lived there all ran out to meet us and were just super nice. I had fun with the kids chasing me around. Not to mention netting HATCHET FISH. Yep- I hope the blue can be seen in the photos I took. They had a serious blue shine to them. Super low PH- our discussions- without testing, said it could be in the high 5 ph range- (thats mega low) The black water was always a much lower ph so you had to be careful bringing back fish and mixing (doing waterchanges) with the water that the actual boat was docked on- Totally different).
