My Dianema urostriatums

Post by fishguy1978 »

My Dianema urostriatums are always lounging around on the corkscrew hazelnut branch but never sit still long enough for me to snap a picture. Finally got one.

They are both. I don't see them in my lfs. I'm considering ordering from the Wet Spot after I get my 260g set up.

They are so cool! My LFS has had adults for months for $15 each. But I just don't have tanks big enough for them.

Cheers, Eric

I maintain a couple tanks for a friend who is no longer physically able. He uses large gravel, smooth stones and multi colored marbles to decorate his tanks. He has cories, 4 banjo cats and 2 D. Urostriatums. I removed the banjos and the 2 flagtails from one tank and brought them home. The cories still have their whiskers where one of the flagtails does not. Unfortunately, I don't think they will regrow.
