Looking for opinions. DJ Ransome has given me a lot of help. I don't see these guys in the LFS so looking for guidance. I'm guessing the average pictures I see are the best pictures people have. I'm talking about the average population of these.
Maingano by far. They are a vivid blue. The cobalt and acei are more of a mid to light blue...I guess it matters what you mean by vivid. Definition is intensely deep (maingano) or bright. The cobalt and acei can be bright but they are not deep colors.
One of the advantages of being insane is that I can provide comparison pics
There are no Cobalt Blues below, but I believe these pics will go far to demonstrating @DJRansome's point that the Acei are not particularly "Vivid." Even non-dominant Mainganos have a more vivid blue (to my eyes) than even the most dominant Acei.
I only have four adult acei, lots of fry.
mine only really school up after feeding.
My big male acei is quiet aggressive. Even towards the chewere and big red!(6" red zebra) Acei certainly aren't dither fish!
