Don't fret; if dwarf pencils aren't available you can still be very successful using beckfordi as targets/dithers. Mama borellii will just have a little bit more work to do protecting the fry, but she should be just as successful.

Thanks 2la, this is my first effort with Apistos, (I don't even have them and I think Im bit by the Apisto bug) and I don't want anything to harm them.

Where did you find them? I'll probably have to order them through an online shop so if anyone knows of a reliable source please let me know.

read from somewhere on the net that female dwarf pencils have clear pelvic fins whereas the males have a tinge of red.
not sure whether this applies to coral reds too.

If I am not mistaken, the male has white pigment on its dosal fins. Its dosal fin has three colors; red, white and black. But most of the time, the black and red colors are fading. If your tank is well planted and have black gravel, they show their best colors.
