    Hi everybody,

    I just got back from the LFS and I wrote myself a list of fish I liked the look of in order to research them, as I don’t want to choose an unsuitable fish again.

    The fish I saw were signed as Lamp Eyes. They were tiny (about a quarter of an inch) fish in a blue ish body who had very beautiful blue eyes. The eyes reflected the light just like the croaking gouramis’ eyes do when the light shines in a certain way. I can’t find the fish in the knowledge base and I also checked on another page, but no joy.

    Thanks for looking

    Sofia check out this thread to see a nice adult male (Mick´s fish). I think lampeyes could be ok for you. Ask to see them feeding before you buy and also if the shop has had many losses and how long they have been in for. Lampeyes can be a bit tricky to acclimatise sometimes.

    Sofia,
    always ask for them to give your proposed fish a bit of food just to make sure they’re eating and also what they’re eating, if the eat flake your on a winner.
    mine were healthy fish when i got them but i still asked them to put a little flake in to see for myself.

    if you plnmb for them get around 6 of them they do better in a mini shoal.

    From dealing with batches of lampeyes when I worked in the trade they always seemed to come in really thin and we tended to lose quite a few in the first couple of weeks. Some fish are better travellers than others basically Sofia. /wink.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”;)” border=”0″ alt=”wink.gif” />
