Caught a half decent shot of my Bolivians tonight. Just sharing.

Indeed. Common does not mean boring I think we agree?

Now that what I want to see again. Last I saw fry from mine was the day we were leaving on an almost month long trip to Australia earlier this year.

Great looking fish!!! I'm pleasantly surprised by the quality of the pics! Keep up the good work! It is also my favorite fish and unfortunately the specie doesn't always get the attention they deserve. Most people run them by in the lfs. Oooh and by the way,.....did you know they do best in small groups? They show some very interesting and funny social behavior.

Very nice Klaus. Now I just need to show my trio what these are again. I need some fry before they get too old. They've spawned a few times, but I need to rescue them out of the display tank.

I know what you are talking about. I just syphoned some of the fry out of the display tank, otherwise they don't last very long.

Even though the flash reveals a multitude of sins (not my tanks) it still can't detract from a nice fish....I found this little beauty in Minneapolis, MN.
