    I have to be honest and admit I’ve never even seen a live one of these but I suspect Andy, Mark or Mick may have kept them.

    I haven’t had these myself but after seeing the photo of Discherodontus ashmeadi that Nonn has put up on LOL I could be tempted

    Hi Matt and Mark , as Mark says I picked up 17 D.halei fom my good pal The Dark One , now off what I’d heard these are supposed to be a little on the delicate side , and when I got them home they developed that bloody awful singapore white spot/ velvet/ slime ??? so I had to treat them quite harshly , cure or kill, anyway during this period I lost 3 fish , so I now have 14 , touch wood they are thriving,wonderful creatures ! good eaters , lively disposition , I’d always wanted these since reading about them in Axlerods loose leaf TFH binders , they were known as Puntius Somphongsi and were reputed to be rarer than hens teeth , so when my pal told me he could get me some I went into that excited blind fish panic finally I had some

    Hi Matt, not all together, 10 Halei in one tank , 4 in another tank , and the Ashmeadi in yet another , not for any special reason other than space and situation at time of purchase , I suspect they would coexist as both species are very placid and seem to show no aggression at all !

    I have a feeling Mick may have a pic of the Ashmeadi ? no doubt he will be round at some stage with his camera

    Hokay I’ll edit the ashmeadi profile and wait on a bit for the other species then.
