I've kept P. taeniatus fry with their parents until they were an inch or so in size. When they grew large enough to crowd the tank I sold a bunch on Aquabid, where they were snapped up, & donated the...

A 4" acutirostre should be fine with 2 1/2 to 3" ansorgii. I wouldn't get very active dither fish, though, since ansorgii are very deliberate eaters & may not get enough food.

You have a pair of Laetacara araguaiae, or purple smilers. The "sideburns" are a dead giveaway. Very large males may grow to 3 1/2 inches but they usually stay smaller. Good luck with them; they're...

They're not dyed; they're fed color enhancing foods. The color usually fades over time & they end up looking like normal sunset thick lipped gouramis. BTW your fish is a color variety of Trichogaster...

Yep, just another selectively-bred variety of Paracheirodon innesi, & if you ask me much less attractive than the wild type. They're being sold as "diamond neons" in my area.

Apistogramma agassizi. They're awsome! I bred them in a 10 gallon with a substrate of oak leaves. They're not picky eaters - flake is eagerly accepted, but they need soft water to breed.
