Any ideas? Maybe a young brycinus sp.? It came in with Barboides gracilis.

A young B. longipinnis ? In FW and Brackish Fishes of West Africa (Paugy et al., 2003) it says that females have a yellow spot in each caudal-fin lobe.

Guess I'll just have to wait and see then. Pretty little things though.

Sure did, and some Neolebias powelli also. Although they are a bit ropey to be honest.

Have you got these lovely looking fish in a community yet?

 

I'm a massive African riverine nut (as my avatar may suggest) and I very nearly ordered 12 Brycinus longipinnis last year, but I held back and got some Pareutropius cf. mandevillei instead, after reading the odd comment here and there that B. longipinnis have been known to starve unassertive feeders to death.

Constantly juggling mainly African riverine fish between 6 tanks, from 54 to 566l in size!

Still got them in quarantine with the barbs and neolebias. They are active but not so much that the other fish can't eat.

Got six. One was DOA and three more have since gone to meet their maker. Hopefully have a pair left but they are small and in very poor condition.
