Found my better camera. Here's some pics.

(My female is EXTREMELY colorful)

Also, all these pictures are of Lucy because the male would not come out of his flowerpot

UPDATE: The fish are now very active and eating. I believe they are starting to get settled in.

Glad to hear! I assume you are planning to breed them, right?

It shouldn't take long for them to start spawning. When I used to breed them, I'd load them up with blood worms and beefheart. Within a week they were cleaning out a cave and moving in. Within another week, I had eggs galore.

It usually took them about 3 weeks to get used to a new tank, but after that, the spawning was on quite frequently.

Cool! I just got them yesterday and the male has claimed the pot. He won't come out if I'm in the room though... But if I walk out for a couple of minute and walk back in, he's out swimming around with Lucy. They never really separate when he comes out.
