    hi all, after sorting some pics that i took at pier Aquatics to find out how clear they come out i found these pics of B hasselti.
    i did’nt purchase them as i have limited tank space at the moment, but i think they deserve a showing.
    the male is a full size specimen the female slightly smaller, but what a superb looking anabantid.
    there was only a small number of them so if anyones into this fish i’d get my skates on down to the shop.
    anyway enough waffling here’s the pics.


    i know there’s a few of you guys into this genus, so see what you think.

    dunno mate, i’ve got Pristolepis with the barbs but they have shortish fins, i think the long flowing fins of the male might be a temptation for them.

    Pretty cool, they kind of look like some of the larger Ctenopoma species. I think they come from slow-moving water so maybe not the best companions for barbs? As for Pristolepis, they can definitely handle themselves. The one I had was in with Geophagus and was not only the most aggressive feeder in the tank but also ragged all their fins to shreds.

    Similar kind of size Mick, perhaps a shade bigger. What species do you have? Mine was a fasciata.
