I have looked for these Inlecypris auropurpurea for ages and finally picked some up at Ryedale show earlier this year

I had a group of these back in England. Lovely fish but I found them to be incredibly skittish. Great pics Mark! I´ll be nicking some of these for the database. /tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":p" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" />

Feel free Matt /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

The guy who had them got shot because they were slittish but I put them in my 7ft and they are right at home with all the big Rasbora's.

Yeah that figures I managed to get them to settle after adding 20 Danio choprai to their tank. Before that they were jumping and hitting the cover glasses every time I went near the tank. /rolleyes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":rolleyes:" border="0" alt="rolleyes.gif" />

Great additions Mark. I've kept my Inlecypris auropurpurea's around 2 years now and they have grown well over 6cm, more in the range of 7.5cm and show a bit of boisterous behavior when feeding time erupts, even the Puntius everetti make way at times for them.

Aye I remember you keeping those Matt. They didn't seem so skittish when I was there, maybe that was after you added the Glowlights?
