Same fish 11 months later. The coloring has changed because of light bulb changes. They are still in a 220g tank, but technically this is a different tank, in the very early stages of plant growth.

They are larger than before but still not full grown IMO. I am posting these so we can all watch them as they grow.

Thanks!

They reside in tap water.

I got 4 Rio Inirida fish from Pete at Villa's and 6 Rio Atabapo fish from snookn on Aquabid. I could tell them apart earlier when their maturity gave them different looks, but they blend together now pretty well.

beautiful tank, lovely fish. I like how the lines of the tank (straight plants) match the lines of the angels.

They reside in tap water pH about 7.0, temperature around 80F. These fish are now a bit larger than any P. scalare I have seen and they should get larger still, although I am beginning to doubt if mine will ever see the 12" tall numbers I have seen quoted elsewhere.

Lots of altum info here.
