here is some updated stuff about my local-colorado springs-tigers, this region is that of a intergrade between barred and blotched tigers. their 55 gallon tank was a weed garden-it was hard to spot one. look real hard and you can see one in the bottom middle left-ish part of the tank

ive cleaned it out-put in a few wood barriers to create a terraced set up

its a bit dirty until the plants grow back a bit and the dirt gets compacted-so some of these guys are gritty little dirt monsters

surprisingly i got a real good photo through all this scratched glass

when i dug them all up i decided to take their photos so to get an idea on the spectrum they cover on patterns

if you notice-a few of the males in the above photos have very spatulate tails for tiger-they were camped out in the small water basin (its a planter) and seem to be ready for spring -so i rounded up my prettiest male and 3 bold females-all of the blotched pattern and have these set aside to put into an aquatic set up-lets see if i can produce anything-as you can see by the photos-the females may be gravid..we'll see.....

Nice setup. Wish I had some tigers. How many do you have I think I counted 8.
