They are gliding around like little vacuums when the lights are off but when the tank is heavily lit they just freeze in one spot. Hopefully the high light does not stress them out.

I still have plenty of all available for pickup or meetup if possible. I plan on attending the GCAS meeting / auction on July 3rd at the Queens Botaniacal Gardens. I can bring fish/shrimp with me if anyone is interested in meeting there.

1- Super reds max out at about 4 inches

2- Ancistrus are very well mannered and get along with most fish, you usually have to worry about they getting picked on. I keep some with cori. duplicareus and they get along just fine.

3 - I also keep Rams in one of my ancistrus tanks with no issues.

4- The size I have now are not yet sexable. Best bet is getting a small group and growing them out and hopefully you will get both sexes. Also adult sized pairs are pretty pricey.

Where in the Bronx are you? If you are in the area, you can stop by and see whats available. I am off the Gun Hill Rd exit on I 95.
