    +1 to adams IDing.
    What else do you have in the tank?
    What size is the tank?
    Do you know the nitrogen cycle?

    Not wanting to be offensive, but please be carefull buying fish without knowing what it is. You won't know needs, behaviour, tankmates aso.
    This one is beautifull but needs companions aso !!

    What types of companions would he like? He's in with a pearl gourami and a sunset gourami, two yoyo loaches, and two spot barbs.

    For what it's worth, we did know what he was when we bought least we thought we did. We've been getting less than optimal advice from our lfs... We're trying to correctly research now. This tank does seem happy with one another so far, but I'm guessing we've made a ton of mistakes. Sigh.

    Meand of their own species (1 male with one ore more females), but doubt the tank is big enough for that. There are several species Mesonauta btw.
