I got a few at the mini auction last week, and am having a hard time finding much information in the net or books....

Anyone have some information?

1)What is there full size?

2)Diet; more carnivorous or herbivore?

3)Water temperatures, I'm keeping them at 78F, but wondering if they prefer warmer (Like Rams) or cooler...

Any help is appreciated:)

Btw do they have a common name?

So cool that these guys are still circulating. These have to be some prolific fish. I think the last spring auction had too many of them to count. Hopefully you'll have fry soon.

Yeah I heard they were from Ken originally! I got these from Ron, and from what I read they breed readily.... Spring auction is coming up!

I haven't had them yet so depending on size maybe I'll take a turn

I never saw them breed, but I put 6 in the tank and pulled 12 out.

That's sounds hilarious!!!

Like a cloning tank:P haha

Come to think of it, in the bag it said their were 6, but upon counting them I think I have 8... Hmm
