That little pesky serpae is picking on the plecos now. He needs a good home. Any takers? I mean the serpae, not the pleco. :hehe:

I bought five hatchet fish yesterday. They're in the quaranteen tank, first time I did that. One died over night. No experience with these fish, but I suspect it was shock of transport or something similar???

See my other post on your dead serpae thread. I'd say catch the bully and send him to the LFS in a hurry.

If you want a fish of similar shape and color you might try harlequin rasboras.

I checked them out. The fish isn't native to south america. Trying to stay true to the SA theme. No matter. I can replace him with an angel.
