Anyone keep red ruby/coral pencil fish?


Nannostomus mortrnthaleri Latin name. I bought two for $40 at nice lfs. I know they like to be in groups so looking for at least 5 more. Thanks all.

There is someone in my local fish club that consistently breeds them. They always go for a decent amount at our auctions, around $40 - 50 for five.

Yeah wet spot has them for 12 each. I paid 20 per at lfs! They are very good looking fish. Discus seem to be leaving them alone too. Phew

Wet Spot does seem the best bet judging from my research. I wasn't willing to spend even what they wanted so I wound up getting a group of Browntailed Pencilfish.
Someday...
