a small and not very showing cuty. the seem to appreciate good water conditions and do very well in a tank with gastromyzon ocellatus. sexing is easy, eggs are to be seen, but breeding should be easier in a special tank without fast water.
male specimen can fight very hard for dominance. I think I lost one male because of a long lasting fierce fight. it seemed to be exhausted, had some injuries.
just to enjoy

Picked up 8 of these at my LFS last night. Never saw a fish acclimate so quickly! Not even 5 minutes after being put in the tank but they were intermingling and schooling with the Harlequin Rasboras. Took food immediately. Have to agree, not really "showy", but to me there's a lot to be said for healthy, peaceful, happy fish.

Has this species been bred in aquaria yet? Also, what's the largest specimen observed thus far?

Well I've had mine a while now and they seem to have topped out at about 5cm SL. No sign of spawning at all other than some showing off.

/laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="Laugh" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" /> Maybe you should try that more often for species that are proving tricky to spawn Graham?

Ok to pinch the fry photo for the profile page?

Just a thought - it seems to me that males have a red dorsal and full red caudal. Females have a clear dorsal and only the centre of the caudal is red.

Also males have a more obvious "network" pattern on the sides whilst the females have a more obvious lateral stripe.

So in the pictures I posted the top is male and the bottom female.

An other possibility is that only dominant males show this pattern, sub-dominant males look like females (apart from body shape).

Of the 10 fish I have only 1 shows the "male" characters.

Any other thoughts on this?

Do you think then that you only have one male or just one dominant male?

...also, now they are breeding and grown even more, can you see tubercules on the dorsal surface of the caudal peduncle?

Hard to be sure but I think I have just the one male - had a good look but can't see any obvious tubercules. Dorsal surface of caudal peduncle is a bit bumpier than females though. btw these fish look best from above!
