Very cool fish. They are not ich magnets. But saying that, they are hard to keep alive long term. My 1st one lasted around 1.5 years, I got him when he was very small in the yellow fase. I had a tank crash which he made it through fine and lasted another 8 months and then one day just died?? I have tried them 2 more times and they both did not last long. The LFS
asked the dealer about them and they said there hard to keep long term.
