    Haven’t kept them. They look very nice however and a lot cheaper as well, less than 2 euro per fish.

    An interesting note on the O. wowoare is that they seem to like to graze on hard surfaces. They’ve been grazing a lot on a rock in their tank as well as the gravel.

    Wow, one of my females is carrying eggs already! And I’ve only had them for a couple of days here

    Unfortunate timing.

    Still, if she’s ready to breed so soon after you got them then there will be more opportunities.

    Gustaf I feel you don´t take responsibility for your fish, better bring them to me next time you´re in Stockholm

    How are you getting on with them Gustav? Some nice pics here.

    They’re doing fine. The bigger female has been carrying eggs a few times. Haven’t seen any fry though. I got recommended to move the adults after they have laid eggs but I haven’t had an empty tank to move them to, so we’ll see.

    I tried to get some pictures but they didn’t turn out too well. Hard to capture the colour on these. They seem to get a bit darker as they settle in, the fish pictured in the link are quite light coloured.

    Why am I not surprised you’ve bred them already.

    It seems that there are two very similar fish in the hobby, genuine O. woworae (we now have a small group as of yesterday), and a fish known as Oryzias “Sulawesi”, “Kendari” or “Neon” from around Kendari which we’ve been breeding very successfully.
    They are definitely different, whether different enough to be regarded as separate species remains to be seen. O. “Kendari” (I prefer this or “Neon” to “Sulawesi” because there are plenty more spp. from the island).
    Early impressions are that the behaviour is slightly different between the two forms, woworae being less inclined to shoal, possibly more aggressive (although with such a small group it’s not realistic to assume this as typical).
    Cool and beautiful.

    Does anybody know the most suitable temperature for these guys? or how long the eggs take to hatch, at what temp?
    Thanks,
    Phill.

    The fish here are housed at about 77f and are active and breeding, not sure exactly how long the eggs take to hatch, will try to keep an eye on some as they develop.

    Thanks Pete, I have some eyed up eggs and was wondering how long to keep feeding the infusoria to get a reasonable culture going before they hatch.
    Interesting that there are two similar fish, I have yet to see them in retail outlets in the UK.

    Hi, I saw some of the “Oryzias Neon” a couple of days ago. Can these fish be sexed as juveniles? and is there a noticeable difference in body shape twixt the sexes?
