Agreed, looks like a gardneri killi. Super cool fish. I had a pair in a 7 gallon and raised a batch or two of their babies. Make sure your tank is well covered - they have a knack for jumping!

You will have issues using the Ray 2 on a non-CO2 tank. It's a strong light intended for high tech setups. I have the planted plus, which is a less intense finnex led light, on a 33 long, and I...

GH of 8, KH of 19. I left that bit off initially simply because I AM a firm believer that stability is more important than actual numbers, and most fish can adapt. I've had very good luck over the...

I would LOVE green neons in this tank, but asking a fish that shows an ideal ph as low as 3 to live in my tank where water is 8.2-8.3 is pushing it. And that's saying something for me because i'm...
