I was leaning towards the blues since i would be getting a larger breeding group, but i do prefer the color of the greens. I suppose if i end up with two males and one female i can look for another female.

Also, i like that they get bigger, but wouldnt it be ideal that i got a smaller species since they would feel more comfortable in a 75 tank rather than greens?

Its a tough decision.

There are also blue panaques i can try.
They look kind of dull in shops, but in a truly healthy environment (like that of breeding setups) they look absolutely beautiful. Only thing is, i question the difficulty of breeding those. They seem alot harder.

Panaques can be even more expensive than greens


But they are magnificent with the healthy coloration

Ya the blue panaques are beauties but I like the blue eye panaques even more but I even like the green phantom better.

I really like the look... but ultimately breeding is the reason im getting them. If i could find someone with experience with blue pans, then id grab them. I still have a week to decide though.

So i was looking around more and another option i have are flat flyer plecos. From what i understand, they are ancistrus and have bristles. Their breeding habits are alot like bushynose plecos. HOWEVER they arent really one of my favourites. I can also try gold nuggets.


You know what im going to stop, ive jacked this thread enough already lol. Sorry
