Love the rummy nose! Have a group of 6...they really brought the tank to life! They brought the rasborras out, and are always wandering around! Don't know why it took me so long to get them...lol! I got them at my LFS "the Fish Store" same place I got my apistos, and my green neons before all but two bit the dust (RIP), and my bristle nose

Sweet! Just saying... You might wanna get 4 more of the green neons, to bring the school back up. But other then that, things seem to be going great! Congrats!

Cool! You could probably find them at liveaquaria too if it was an emergency.

She hasn't even seen a male in at least 5 years. She goes through all the motions just like a pair would do... The eggs just never get fertilized.

my apistos should be spawning any day now and after reading this it should be really soon since i rearanged the tank a couple days ago. i think i might try to keep a female bc i read it's better to have 2 or more females to a male bc of the attention they'll get.
