I found them on the forum here. Wasn't a breeder, just someone who had some to sell. Nice Fish! The males are pretty awesome. Less of the double Red pattern, but the natural coloration is beautiful

I would look into BML. I just put a single bar of regular output over my 6", 22" deep tank and have more than enough intensity. 2 xb (their high-output model) would be MORE than you would need. Talk...
