pacific blue-eye (Pseudomugil signifier)

has anyone ever kept these guys? i believe they are closely related to australian rainbows. they've recently started appearing at the lfs's and i really love them. there's not much info on the web - most seems to be based on researching wild ones rather than keeping in the aquarium. any experience welcome

I've kept them with theadfin rainbows. Nice little fish. Peaceful for the most part but the males quarrel a bit. I fed them flake food but they also loved live blackworms.
