Today In The Fishroom~11/29/11 P. managuense "Laguna Xiloá"

I have nine of these divided into two tanks. Very pretty fish. Here's the larger of the males.

An interesting angle you don't see often in a photo....thanks to lighting from below the photo tank.

Image

I've always found it easy with this species to get this angle. I simply put my lens cap on the top of the tank.

Image

I almost deleted this, but thought it was a pretty cool self portrait.

Image

The best of the batch of photos IMHO.

Shot with the pair...female in the breeding area.

One more

Very colourful fish indeed. Are these, copper, pink and blue colours always visible?
Cheers
