    Depending on your location it may or may not seem exotic but you could try a pygmy sunfish, they are not super active, and most places refer to them as an expert level fish, which they are not as I have discovered. It only says that on many things because they are micro predators that will not accept anything but live foods. Buy a small mix of males and females and if heavily planted they will spawn with an excellent fry survival rate in my opinion.

     

    Alternatively there is always bororas maculatus.

    they are not a bonded pair, when i said i purchased a pair i meant as in two of them. on the knifefish i will remember Eigenmannia, glass knifes, right?

     

    thanks

    thank you for the info, I would never have thought of knifefish being compatible. I will stick with the frozen foods then.

     

    ok, so i will probably build a system in the near future to permanently house them.

     

    thanks again

    at the moment the tank they are temporarily in is smooth gravel. when the tank for them is set up the substrate will be fine river sand, the tank will be dim lit with quite a bit of driftwood. 

     

    will they take live brine? also i have noticed the aggression, its not too bad though, they will nip at each other occasionally and then swim to opposite sides of the tank for a while.

     

    what species in your opinion should i include for a biotope? they will probably end up in a 125 gallon later on but at the moment they are set for a 60.

    thanks

    i am sorry i not have posted for so long, the tank will be a no go until i build up sufficient funding again. the money that was going to that tank is instead going to the hyper-aggressive pearl gouramis that seem fond of killing tiger barbs at the moment. i will eventually get this tank set up. i did decide against the puffers however and i still have my notebook of ideas. happy holidays.

    nimbochromis, sorry for being a bit vague i was unaware that there was more than one venustus.

    ok thanks i might not include them but i am not sure. all i do have for sure is the other species are set but it seems that there are mixed feelings about the puffer. from what i am seeing it seems to be a gamble with the puffers. some are said to be peaceful others are not. i need to think about this.

     

    thanks

    they are in different nations and are many miles apart but from what i have read they live in similar environment. and i will be posting photos. the only situation i am finding right at the moment is that there is no one who sells any of these fish except d. margaritatus and c. travancoricus!!!!!

    thanks for the info.

     

    i was basing the outrunning on the mbu puffers i have seen which barely moves at all i was unaware that these little ones could go at that speed. and about the tank size, it is the community that is small the tank is going to be a 55 gal but the largest fish is in the community according to my sources is only 3 cm long. all of the fish live close by to each other and so i am creating a biotope with them.

     

    thanks again.

    all the sources i have seen indicates that it fades but my sources may not be accurate.

    ok thank you i have seen non adhesive eggs and have had no experience with these fish so i was unaware that they had adhesive eggs.

    i think that it is interesting that they laid them on the seal of the tank. are there any other clusters that are not on the seal because they may be using it as an adhesive.

    when there were 10 the largest one was one inch long. i have a Met. greshakei, what is either cynotilapia afra or blue pseudotropheus zebra, an electric yellow, and two i have yet to identify. the others are dead.

     

    i am feeding them african cichlid formula pellets.
