They are a river fish, so good turnover rate/current is appreciated for them to show any activity level. Otherwise, sponge filtration and a powerhead is great for them. They like driftwood, as they like to squeeze into tight spaces to feel secure. They get a little over 2", and can take temps from 75-86 with a wide range of hardness. They are insectivores in teh wild, but take frozen or dried foods pretty readily in the tank.

Ha,forgot to include tank size- they don't need a big tank, 20 long would be MORE than adequate, and a group could probably be kept in a 10 or 15 with adequate flow.

OR you can tell her this stuff si really hard to get and I have been slaving for months to get it for you guys :p

It sells fast!

FYI, I am going to be doing a small business saturday sale- probably a typical 10% off total type deal. Most of these fish should be available for that, barrign complications

There may be further promotions as well, like reduced shipping for orders over x amount. Keep your eyes peeled!

I'm sure if he did that you would have a hard time getting him to leave.

I have alder cones, must have deleted that by accident.

The shrimp will be part of teh sale- hoping they can get me the tigers, but they are not on this weeks list.

There have been lots of quality issues wiht some of the asian farms this past year, working on quality control or so they say.

Will the cocama shoal with my other otos or do they stay to themselves? Will they crossbreed between the 2 also?

Hmm, I would think they would all hang out together, though I keep them separately here for quarantine purposes, so don't know for sure. As far as hybridization, given their relative difficulty of breeding, i think it would be highly unlikely

Thanks for the input might. Might have to order a couple when they come available. All your new stock look amazing if they look anything close to the pictures.

Pardon my ignorance, but what does the "cf." stand for? I've never noticed this notation before.
