Fins too long for macropthalmus? Or is it one of the ones that exist in several forms Mick? This is supposed to be macropthalmus:

the search will go on, i did get some macropthalmus of paul dixon a couple of year back and have the pics somewhere in this pc just gotta find where they are and compare them.
i think not sure though that there are location variants .

ps looking at the fish in your pic it looks like a sub-adult male, easy as sin to breed i just reap the fry out to grow on.

If that is normani it´s the best specimen I´ve ever seen! /ohmy.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":o" border="0" alt="ohmy.gif" /> This is the fish that comes in as "lampeye" isn´t it Mick? Usually looking something like the ones below? The finnage on that boy is superb!

yes most shops i go in they lump them all as lampeye's but as you know you can get some very nice contaminants in these shipments.

I tend to find that looking very closely into tanks containing a lot of small fish will often turn up something interesting. The last cool thing I picked up like this were some Gnathocharax steindachneri (see pic below) that were mixed in with some hatchet fish. Very interesting wee predatory characin with a massive gob and quite large teeth! /cool.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="B)" border="0" alt="cool.gif" />
