    I thinh they’re beatiful.

    Unfortunately they seem to suffer the same fate as many Goodeids. Not spectacular enough, no popping colors, hence of no interest to most “aquarists”.

    On the other hand, fishes like that are very hard to come by if you don’t belong to a number of specialized fish clubs.

    Very nice Hachge. I saw some Austrofundulus guajira at the SKS convention in Denmark last year but I had to hold myself back from buying them due to lack of space. Austrofundulus are really cool fish though, I wish to keep them in the future.

    Yep, on my list to keep one day as well.

    Great photos Herve, do you collect eggs on a daily basis with these?

    No as for all my SAA I collect eggs twice a month.Saa are nice fish to keep alone per tank which means you need 3 tanks per species,one for breeding pair,one for subadult and one per fry .The adventage they grow very fast but last  just more than one year generally

    Yes these are the fish Jacques collected last summer .I had some difficulties to keep the eggs and get fry after more than 6 months.First hatch  ranking from 6 weeks to 8months.Some eggs still there but blocked in 1rst diapause.

    I use to water the eggs every 15 days untill I can’t find eggs in the substrat.This time it is coco peat ,it is neutral.This fish and the eggs do not like acidic conditions:pH 6.5 to 7.5 is very good for the genus.I have no more basic peat and can’t find any in France.
