I have the chance to get either some Barboides gracilis, Tyttocharax cochui or Tyttocharax madeirae. I remember there was a B. gracilis thread on the old Petfrd, but I guess that's gone...

I think a small rainforest setup for the B. gracilis with some moss and leaves would be fine, also for breeding, maybe the same for the Tyttocharax. Any input would be appreciated, especially for breeding setup /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Thanks a lot! That was a lot of good info there /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Definately worth a try. It was the one of the three I wanted to try the most, as I read that the Tyttocharax could be quite territorial towards eachother. i motly have smallish tanks so angry fish, whatever the size, is not the best option here.

Hmm...got the reply from my contact that I must take a minimum of 60 specimens wich is far beyond what I want, so unless some friends wants to share the lot I guess I must let them be.
