One of the most beautiful species, but unfortunately quite aggressive. What companions do you have?
He's currently with a smaller firemouth and a bunch of tiger barbs.

Day three and the juvies are chasing around the Astatheros rostratus group ... I suppose I should devote a tank just for them . ? .
I've noticed some have said you have to wait and vent them to sex them but I do see a big difference in finnage even in my juvies . Perhaps this is unrealiable ?

Like someone mentioned in a previous post they are quite aggressive.
Finnage isnt an accurate to sex, i've had females with just as long trailers as my males some even longer.
