during the years some lovely species were coming and going. actually I remarked the first neoheterandria elegans female changed to a male. I keep them as indicator for the "qualitiy" of a tank in almost all tanks exept the special ones as for e. okefenokee. they have the stunning capacitiy to release one juvenile fish after the other, depending on the total of the conditions they are living in. they dispose of the not uncommon "superfötation" too. not a bestseller round here, but I like them very much.

betta ocellata, the "trout" of fast rivers of Sabah, borneo are very interesting - and exellent jumpers! I lost almost all of them after a change of tank. they found the way through the 2x2 cm hole in the cover-panel. it's a first class predator, shrimps are gone as if by magic

and a lovely small species, barboides gracilis, becoming yellow when well off

Fantastic pics, and I'm really happy to have some of well-fed B. gracilis. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> I'll add them and the B. ocellata ones to the relevant profiles tonight if possible. Did the Betta come with any locality name attached Charles?

P.S. - can you tell us more about the colour changes in B. gracilis? I thought it was the males that were yellow.

Cake or death?

I'll ask Pascal where he did catch them exacly. and if he has some more specimen.
gracilis went to a friend who told me lately that they have become very colourful. the small specimen of the last shipment are not as beautiful yet. and are going to the same place. I'll have more infos soon. i'll send you some more pics this weekend.

Nice pics /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

My ocellata were from pascal too and I can certainly back you up with regards to their jumping ability! Carpet surfing seems to be their hobby! LOL

I finally got the answer: Pascal found the ocellata near Kudat, Sabah
