    Anyone know what these guys are? Very similar to my Norman lameye's except they have an orange tint to them and what I presume are the males are slightly bigger more colourful with longer fins and an extra 2 little fun type things just behind the top of there heads. Tia

    Hello!

    Maybe a pseudomugil red neon/pseudomugil paskai red neon (people are working out the details of the specific epithet)

    I don't think that's it. The fish in the picture should have a more thinner and longer body structure.

    I've seen those recently, cant seem to find it right now. Maybe a Blue Eye rainbow fish of some kind.

    Yes, they are Red Neon Blue Eyes. The species has very recently been described, as Pseudomugil luminatus, Allen, Unmack and Hadiaty, 2016. I've bred them, much as you would any of the small Blue Eyes, they are not picky about water. I used Riccia as spawning medium, the tiny fry would come out when they got big enough to not get eaten.
