Re: Rhino fish ?????

The humphead glass fish were only discovered three years ago, so they don't know what fish it goes well with and which ones it doesn't do well with. I learned all this from my lfs which had 2 for sale and one either died in the store or it was sold. I think that you can also tell the gender by the darkness of that hump it has. I don't know for sure but I am pretty sure about that. I hope this helped.

Re: Rhino fish ?????

Welcome. I would have gotten them but they were at least $37 each and I only had enough to buy the necessities. :'( I don't know any more about the glassfish because the owner only said that much because there isn't that much info on them yet. They are still very beautiful fish.
