Thanks, the one in the picture is one of my females, the males don't seem to get as deep red as the females
They are very easy to look after, they feed on algae and uneaten fish food. If there isn't much for them to feed on I occasionally drop an algae wafer in there broken in half.
They also breed very easily, the female will carry the eggs under her belly until they hatch which is interesting to look at.
I did have some in one of my community tanks but my clown loaches found them very tasty so just research what might eat them!
