Congratulations Herve! They sure are a nice fish! I have a preserved pair here and they are huge!! Around 100mm TL for sure. What are you feeding the wee ones?

They are one of my favourites -

Eventually the male will spit out nearly 100 at a time /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

I have some here too and there are wild ones on the trade lists just now too

They take anything I give them,dry food ,frozen food or bloodworms.They are small about 6 cm and you say they reach 10 cm Stefan? I will have to build a new tank for the fry then as they are in a 35 liters tank.

Congrats Herve!

I never saw the species on the sales lists here, so I'm quite unfamiliar with it :-(
