Some look like Stephan's (swisstropicals), some are more clear. Here are a few pics of my actual stock:

The ones he has pictured is what they generally look like as adults upon import, darker and more opaque.

Lots of small microcrustacean/meaty foods, lots of water changes, and a huge chunk of moss. Microworms for the babies. They take a fair amount of time to hit maturity. The females get almost a .25" longer than the males, and much wider through the pectoral area.

I was gonna try a shrimp/cory tank, using a frag 5 gallon. Trying to get both to breed, but it sounds like shrimp babies are gonna be a trigger for the cory spawn lol

More likely the adult shrimp will eat the cory eggs, to be honest

Probably not, mainly because the angels would eat most of my profits (lol) and I had gottne in denisonii and it took me forever to sell (even at an excellent price) because they just are in an entirely different stocking mindset than what most of my customers have.

That being said, Discus Hans in Baltimore is working with a TON of angels, very high quality, right now. His web address is: http://discusfishstore.com/catalog/index.php

Hi! Do you think you'll be able to get in some Checkerboard cichlids and Sturisoma festivum? I can't find these guys anywhere! Thank you!

I don't like to keep nerites with assassins. While theya re not their food of choice, they will go after them once they get rid of any pest snails. You can shoot mean email or a pm for shipping quotes

Coral Red Pencilfish look soooooooooooooo good. I'd definitely splurge on them if they weren't so pricey (though that can't be helped). Chili rasboras still seem to be the plan. Good thing they look great in the pictures, too.
