"Mirror, mirror, on the wall. Who is the handsomest of all?"

These two 12"+ male Paraneetroplus bifasciatus 'Rio Chacamax' have been face to face, staring at one another for at least five minutes. They just came up to one another and held this position. No aggressive posturing whatsoever. They've grown up from 1" youngsters, and have been housed together for the last four years. Who knows, they could be best friends. :)

Very nice picture. Paraneetroplus bifasciatus are on my list of fish to keep in the future when I'm able to have larger tanks. Their coloration is awesome.

Thank you. One of the most colorful populations of bifasciatus, for sure.
