    here’s a pic of the fish i have,
    i think they could be macropthalmus but not 100% sure, is there any killi buffs to tell me for sure.

    thanks

    Fins too long for macropthalmus? Or is it one of the ones that exist in several forms Mick? This is supposed to be macropthalmus:

    the search will go on, i did get some macropthalmus of paul dixon a couple of year back and have the pics somewhere in this pc just gotta find where they are and compare them.
    i think not sure though that there are location variants .

    ps looking at the fish in your pic it looks like a sub-adult male, easy as sin to breed i just reap the fry out to grow on.

    yes most shops i go in they lump them all as lampeye’s but as you know you can get some very nice contaminants in these shipments.

    I tend to find that looking very closely into tanks containing a lot of small fish will often turn up something interesting. The last cool thing I picked up like this were some Gnathocharax steindachneri (see pic below) that were mixed in with some hatchet fish. Very interesting wee predatory characin with a massive gob and quite large teeth!
