my 55gal is finally starting to finsh up its cycle. So, i want to begin learning about my next fish i want to ad. I want to get a pair of African Butterfly Fish. My hope is that by getting a pair (male and female) there won't be any territorial problems. My issue is i don't know how to sex i have looked up a lot of pages on them but none seem to have good discriptions on it. So if you have experince with them i would love to hear about sexing.
Also, i have read they are picky eaters and won't eat anything unless its on the surface of the water. I generally feed frozen brine shrimp (not so much anymore) and blood worms. the brine shrimp tends to sink more and i can get the blood worms to float but not as well as i would like. Does anyone know of a good food for them?
Any other words of advice are appreciated
In case it has any effect here are my stocking plans:
2 butterfly fish
2 gouramis(i have a platinum in my 20gal i will move over)
1 Bichir Senegal he is about 5" now
I plan on giving my dwarf gouramis to a friend.
