Skiffia lermae


I was able to obtain 9 of this species.
I can only find one site with limited information
The search function gives me zero hits.
Does anyone have this and would like to share there experience?
Or can provide links with more info?
Thanks.

It looks like a fish that would be rather uncommon to the hobby. Looks like you're one of the few! Keep us posted on how they work out.

Thanks lub.

Hopefully they work out i try to stay away from fish that doesnt have much info.
Hate to watch them die or struggle to survive because i dont know there parameters.

So far so good though. Theyre swimming around and exploring. I think they are rather shy because if anything swims near them they run and hide in the frogbit roots.

You should get pictures and list your specs so if other people pick them up they'll have a baseline to compare to.

Link to the video i took the pic from. I would suggest to play it on HQ if you can. This is their normal speed and mannerisms that i can tell so far.
I do believe the fry makes an appearance.
