Alright Brookster here's the dwarf characidiums I'll be ordering along with a pic of what the pseudomugil paskai will look like soon. I think they will look great with my R. wallichii in the background :p

That's one heck of a transformation. Pretty much colorless to like 'how can he even handle that color'.
Good luck with em! I definitely want to see a full tank shot at some point!

Really nice fish. What's the plan with the breeding project?

First the plan is to get them into better shape, as they are young and were wild imports so they're a bit thin. That's my main plan as I pound out the research needed to initiate the breeding project itself and add another notch to my belt while making an relatively rare/expensive fish a bit easier for some to obtain.

Ahh that's good. Glad you are finding a way to help make cool fish more available. I might take you up on it once the project gets going!

That's a nice piece of wood you got there! I need to go hunting for some dw at the lfs this weekend...

If anyone comes across any sites that give care guidelines for the odontocharacidiums please post a link, I'll be treating them as any other characidium species for the time being and I'm just starting to translate various sites looking for usable info.
