    I was just scrolling through threads and someone mentioned a peacock gudgeon. So I looked up a picture and scrolled some more.... then I watched some videos... then I stumbled upon THIS?!

    :eek:

    Empire Gudgeon! It's so pretty! A quick google search didn't give me much info, and I need to study for finals, so can anyone give me some basic info about them? My largest tank is a 26g, so is this another fish to add to my ever-growing list of "somedays" or can I actually get it? My LFS can order just about anything...

    Disclaimer: I always do my own research but I have to study and I'm looking for some quick facts to calm my brain down.

    Very rare and EXPENSIVE. I'd put it on the someday list.

    They are a nice fish we have 2 in a 2 and a half foot tank with other fish and they are easy to care for.
    If you can get them I'd say do it.
    The only downfall I can think of is that they can take ages to get the spectacular colour
