I dunno if these qualify as oddballs but I am keeping several species of wild type bettas: B. albimarginatum, imbellis, ocellata, macrostoma, bellica, budigala, strohi, foerschi, and rubra. I also have L66, L80, L136a, and L260 plecos, Badis buxar, Centromochlus perugiae, and Microctenopoma nanum (only one of these... sigh... know where I can get any more?). Maybe my fish aren't really oddballs but rather it is the fish keeper who is the oddball.
Good luck.

Awesome stock so far guys! Keep them coming! Stuff that's not normally common or rare can be thrown into this oddball category too. Just pretty much anything non- cichlid like

Nice! Forest Lake Pets always constantly brings in crazy oddballs and such so people must be buying them!
