Okay, think I got this one...

Picked up this lovely 5 inch fish from the store.

4 lateral schute rows, 3 complete belly schute rows, face to nose ratio equal? Tail even pigment along entire edge. Long narrow face?

Very nice photos! (we should add some of those to the CLOG page; I'll get to that later - I'm writing an exam now).

Congratulations on getting another. :-)

Cheers, Eric

I love the twigs, theyre interesting fish and fairly active for what they do. Even when resting they sit out in the open.

This one is in my eques tank to clean up the biofilm bloom, will eventually go into an orinoco river biotope with my L240 pleco and corydoras loxozonus.

What's nice with twigs is theyre not aggressive to one another, so keep many in one tank without problems as long as you provide them lots of branches so they can choose a spot for themselves.


Also, feel free to use any photo I post here that is usable or useful, I am more than happy to let them be shared if they can help others.
