They are gorgeous! What size tank do you have and is t a species only?
They’re really starting to colour up :) I’ve added another female though because there are a couple of males that won’t let each others tails grow they test their pecking order a lot!. This is a 4ft tank but slightly more height than my other tank as these guys prefer that section of the water column. It’s not a species only, I’ve got a few different kinds atm , I really like the crytoheros I’ve got a pair of t-bar sajicias, myrnae cichlid a pair of rainbows. Red breast acara, electric acara and a polar parrot.

my plan is to move the polar parrot and acaras to my other 4/5ft tank who’s got my golden saum in (he’s not very forgiving so I’m not even attempting Congo tetra). So congos tank will just be crytos soon which is a nice contrast
I’m not sure if anyone else has found this but my congos are really interactive they don’t shy away at all and will come and have a look when you approach the tank. I really love the colours of the females too. It’s hard to capture on a picture but they really sparkle just as much as the males but more greeny colours. They are fun to feed too … rapid!! So I have to feed at two ends of the tank

Thank you for the info, sounds like beautiful setups. Congo Tetras are on my bucket fish list. Unfortunately I don’t have the space to accommodate them now but I do have MTS so probably soon. :p

Aw Thankyou , What do you keep at the moment ? I want to complete the cryptoheros genre then I’ll leave the tanks alone. I did have a panemensis but he mustn’t have been healthy when I got him

I don’t think this is the right thread for a convo but I have no idea what I should be doing about it. Maybe someone will hop in and tell me and maybe a moderator can move this thread if necessary.
Now to answer your question. :) I’m fairly new at this, started this past Summer. I have 3 tanks at the moment my first setup is a 37 gallon high that is the home to 3 pearl gouramis that mostly use the top part, 8 rummynose tetras that like the middle, 2 Bolivian rams female and some Panda and Pepper corys.
It’s heavily planted, no CO2, hbo and sponge filter. The second one is my Betta in a 5 gallon also planted and now I’m working on a 15 gallon Fluval Edge, I’m preparing it for Celestial Danios and different color shrimps. You will see the Fluval was the Betta’s tank before I moved him to the smaller one, it was too far for him to swim all the way to the top for air.
