Wow, I've been looking at Gertrudae Rainbowfish Aru II for some time. I can't find them except on sites like AB..I'd like to know where you find them!

I get lots of my "rarer" nano fish from www.homelessaquatics.com or his FB page www.facebook.com/homelessaquatics.

The super fortunate thing is he like 10 minutes from my house and uses the same water source I do so I know the fish I get from him will be near the same parameters.

yeah I think this might be the same deal though. Plain pseudomugil gertrudae, not Aru II's

What the purple spotted gudgeon? Yeah, they can get kinda large, but the Peacock gudgeon doesn't.

so i picked up my new fish today...
8 Gertrudae Rainbowfish
2 Samurai Gourami

It's a bit cloudy. So I'll do a water change tomorrow and try to take a pic later this week. I added flame moss on top of the driftwood and it looks pretty sweet imo lol.
