    Some pictures of a group of Dario hysginon I recently acquired:

    Males


    Female

    They are temporarily in a dirty plastic tank so excuse all the “crap” in the pictures

    That’s an incredible looking fish. You must have a fairly epic collection oaken – where did you pick these up from?

    dunc: Ordered them from the wholesaler through my local fish store. Only seen them on the list twice. Seems like more and more fish from India and Myanmar are making it to the stores lately

    Well, I don’t know if I mentioned that they spawned earlier, but that spawn didn’t yield any free swimming fry. After that I hoped they would spawn again but I never noticed that they did, and now I saw 2 fry that were pretty big. Thing is that I have no idea how old they are!

    And now the female has been very fat for a while but for some reason they aren’t spawning again. Water values are: pH 4.51, 130us/cm, 24C.

    It seems like I have at least 2 fish that are not Dario hysginon, but some other Dario species. I could be wrong though. Their body is longer and they don’t have the same colours. First I figured that one of them was a big male D. hysginon, but it hasn’t coloured up like the smaller D. hysginon males so it seems unlikely. Will have to separate them from the rest of the group and get some pictures.

    Some Badis maybe? *scratches chin* Do you know if the Dario were wild-collected mate?

    Yes, they are wild caught. The thing is they just look pale with a little red in the fins, like the D. hysginon does when they are scared.

    I’m sure it’s not a Badis though. They look exactly like the rest but just more stretched and very pale.

    When I mentioned the pH of 4.51 I was referring to my Poecilocharax weitzmani-tank, sorry for the confusion.

    I’m keeping the Dario hysginon in water with a pH of about 7.5-8.
