    a small and not very showing cuty. the seem to appreciate good water conditions and do very well in a tank with gastromyzon ocellatus. sexing is easy, eggs are to be seen, but breeding should be easier in a special tank without fast water.
    male specimen can fight very hard for dominance. I think I lost one male because of a long lasting fierce fight. it seemed to be exhausted, had some injuries.
    just to enjoy




    this one just woke up

    Picked up 8 of these at my LFS last night. Never saw a fish acclimate so quickly! Not even 5 minutes after being put in the tank but they were intermingling and schooling with the Harlequin Rasboras. Took food immediately. Have to agree, not really “showy”, but to me there’s a lot to be said for healthy, peaceful, happy fish.

    Has this species been bred in aquaria yet? Also, what’s the largest specimen observed thus far?

    Well I’ve had mine a while now and they seem to have topped out at about 5cm SL. No sign of spawning at all other than some showing off.
