  • New Species

    A new species of fish was discovered recently! Pretty cool looking too. Thought I'd share.

        Since it is an area where hobby fish are already collected, I would say it will not be long.

          Interesting... this would explode in nano tanks hopefully they would make great fish food too lol

                I don't know how much of a hit these guys will make in the hobby because of their small size. Smaller fish are harder to feed.

                    Those are really cool looking. That coloring is amazing . From their description of it, it would probably need a blackwater tank with lighting that would just barely be enough to see them.

                      Yeah but they'd be an amazing addition to a blackwater set up. You'd need moonlighted to see them I think. They sound shy.

                        I agree, a large shoal of them seems like it would look very nice. Their bright coloring would probably stand out very well too. It did come across as them being a nocturnal fish, at that size I would think that would be best for survival. So...when do you think you will have them lol

                            Oh cool, that would be neat to be able to go see the natural habitat for a fish firsthand and collect them legally. Plus, the Rio Negro and the surrounding area just seems to be an interesting area, but dangerous in some aspects.

                              We might know the same person then. I know someone who is planning to collect them as well.
