Makes you wonder why anyone would desire to dye/tattoo a fish when nature already provides the best colours!

The body shape really reminds me of Aphanius. Think I´d like to this genus at some point. Were they difficult Mick?

not really difficult Matt, they are prone to gatting velvet disease though, the breeding is a bit hit and miss though, easy to spawn but the eggs are a b*gg*r to hatch sometimes.

What makes them difficult to hatch mate? I take it they need a dry period?

sometimes Matt they started out as good eggs but while in the drying they either went bad or just dissapeared leaving just peat in the end, other times i got really good hatches????.

that is one hell of a fish.
ditto mick, i had same problems. not sure if it was to do with the genetics of the parents, bad luck or poor quality peat etc. but i did maintain the guntheri for 3 years, raising fry and breeding them.
