Are some very cute fishes. I understand they are more peaceful than P. nicholsi. I think you can not keep the aquarium 6 males and 3 females.

Of my original purchase of these guys (I ordered 8, they sent 9, they were not sexable at the time of purchase), I ended up with the 6M/3F. Knowing that would not work in the long run I have been growing up some other females and have now moved half the males to another tank. In the big tank though, the 6 males had plenty of territory but the few females have been holding constantly. There has not been a lot of down time for them. I'm working on that but the little ones have to grow up a bit yet.

What a great looking fish! It reminds me of a mix of several common species, jewel/williamsi north/caeruleus/estherae/greshakei. :)

Halmiris - they are very peaceful and what I like best about them is that use the whole tank, not just the bottom. It's nice to see them swimming both high and low in the tank.

Wax32 - thank you. Great for looking at and watching.

GTZ - Thanks GTZ and I agree with you as far a being a lot like some other species....just in a smaller version. My males are probably 2 1/2 to 3 inches now and the females are more like 2 inches. And I also usually have more than one male with dominant colors on which is nice. Subdominant colors are not bad either, just not as bright on the yellow. They make a nice dwarf cichlid alternative and deserve consideration when looking at dwarf species.

I have been searching for these for over a year. I can't find a source. I did see some on aquabid but I was too late. Can you let me know?

Everytime I see these fish for sale they are in such a poor state. It's nice to see what they should look like
