Nice looking tank! Simple. Clean. Love it! What kind of fern is growing on your wood? Great looking fish too! Where did you get them?

I wish these fish were more common over here. One of the most beautiful SA species. The aquascaping is also excellent!! What pH and hardness is the water at?

Hi ggMing,

Great tank and fish, as others mentioned, thank you for sharing. I have not seen these SA fish before; the markings around their eyes and on their face are great.

We would love more pics when/if you have them.

Thanks,
Matt

Something about them reminds me of a reptile. Anyone else seeing that? I think its the eyes and color. Very unique fish. I with these were more common. I would definitly have me some. :thumb:

I'm kinda wondering why their fins are clamped. Nice fish though.

the fishes is all fine, just that they only flare when the see own reflection on a mirror...
other than this, they don't flare much.. also, they are very peaceful towards tank mates... including smaller fishes like cardinal tetras... i use to have cardinals as dither but i took them out, as they do not compliment my tank... =P by the way, here's another pic of the male, and updated pic of the tank...

the coconut shell is now hidden behind... on the right...

Hi guys, this is my first message, so first of all i have to say: "Compliments everybody keeping online this board! It's very very useful speaking with other people of other countries about tropical freshwater fishes!"

After that, my compliments also go to mmGing because of the way he/she sets the tank: very very nice looking :-)
On the 30th of October 2010 i'm gonna go to Milano buying a pair of Ivanacara Adoketa, and would be very useful to know at what values you keep yours...and, if you had success in breeding this wonderful fish, wich is best way to reach that goal :-)

Thanks everybody and...last but not least.....sorry for my english.. :oops:

Bye, Marco.
