Why you are thinking that they are tigers?
Neo's is my guess.

Wicca didn't say she thought they were tigers (not that I've read). It's probably due to the striping. But I do think if these do form a strain that another name should be given to avoid confusion (more confusion that is).

i will be quite honest i have no clue what the parameters are other than just kinda guessing. i dont measure them very often and normaly only if there is a problem in a tank but i know in general what some of them run

PH: is between 7 and 7.5 ( i only use tap on all my tanks and im using sand in that one)
GH: 7 (that is what it is in all tanks)
KH: 2 (thats what it is in all tank)
TDS: 270

ok female is down to carrying one egg. not sure why she has dropped them. im thinking about doing a cross and seeing what i get out of them. cause it is possible they are a cross between the unknows and a neo and that is why they look like neo's. so if she does drop the last egg... and i never see a baby in the tank i will toss a blue rili in with her and remove the male green since that is the only other possible cross that could have happened. we shall see how it goes though
