    This is the info I have:

    “Indawgyi Lake near Lonton
    Dario hysginon

    135 µS. GH 4, KH 3, pH 8.0-8.5, temp. 2 Celsius.

    Yansyn near Indawgyi Lake
    Badis corycaeus, Dario hysginon

    54 µS, GH 1, KH 2, pH 8.5-9.0, late afternoon temp. 25 Celsius, morning temp. in very nearby, same type of habitat 15 Celsius. (He speaks of how the sun raises the temp. throughout the day, like posted in this thread earlier.) Slow flowing water with lots of plants.

    Nanhkwy stream/river near Myitkyina
    Badis corycaeus, Dario hysginon

    85 µS, GH 3.5-4.0, KH 2, pH 7.8-8.0, temp. 20.5 Celsius. The stream is 100 m wide with flowing water. Fish caught near the banks.”

    Happy to report that I now have lots of newly hatched fry from these beauties. Too small to get a picture of though, they really are tiny.

    Picked up three of these that had been languishing in a shop near me for a few weeks. Pretty sure I’ve got two males and a female, will get some footage soon for confirmation. Seem to settling in nicely and taking frozen food as long as it wafts about in the water column a bit. Not much colour to them yet, will see how they do.

    Cool. Make sure to get some pictures of them! Or video?!

    Quick video of them here –

    The tank is newly set up so is still a little messy, but they seem happy at the moment. The adult male is complete attention whore, he’s up against the front glass begging whenever he sees me come near. Much less shy than I was expecting.

    Oh, and a question.

    I’m fully expecting to need to move one of the males when they start getting territorial. Do you think there’s any wisdom in removing either the adult or subadult male preferentially? The female looks about the same age as the younger male.

    I don’t think it would matter really. They’re not really anything like cichlids where the female would be able to “hold her own” against a male if they were of a similar size. With Dario spp. I find that the males are always chasing the females relentlessly anyway.
