On a slightly unrelated note, what what conditions are you all keeping these guys in?
I know someone who's been in the hobby for many a year and insists that they are a brackish water fish but whenever I read information on them people are keeping them in regular fresh.

I've never heard of them as brackish fish.. Perhaps there was some confusion between the Peacock and the Empire Gudgeon, as they inhabit both brackish and fresh waters.

Freshwater here as well. Never heard of them in brackish. Mine have spawned in fresh so I'm sure they are happy.

Yup fresh, heavily planted 5 gallon, with Neo shrimp that seem to have really dwindled in numbers since putting the fish in there...

Hey, how are these guys doing for you. I picked up 2 from petsmart but I think they are both females, but awesome little girls. Im looking for a male for my pair now if you have any to get rid of.

I have some, but they're young and small as all of the first hatching have sold. I wouldn't be 100% certain on sexing at their age, but I'd be willing to take a stab at it.
