since i have not been able to yet get the other species i am looking to get, i have two spare tanks so i decided to continue to looking at the fire fins. i kept the two from kinglucky to have on hand for comparison, and i use a hap. flameback female to get them to color. {i wont let them spawn}

any way i did get my other group yesterday from howard at tx aquagardens. {thanks my friend} they came from the hccc most likely as they came from a guy who got them thru someone he met at an hccc auction.
as soon as i placed them in the tank one male colored up right away.

i am already seeing a diffrence in the legnth of the dorsal fins and pectral, and caudal fin. as well as head shape and color.

did you have a group before this current one, or was that in the past?

They look pretty nice. I cant wait for my group. But i got other issues right now so i am putting it off for another week.

i had some that were given to me by a friend, however they turned out to have way too many incinsistancies in diffrent headshapes and jaw lines and color. i kept two of the males for future comparision. so i have two the ones i just got and the ones from before.

thhis group is very shy. it may take a while before i can get some better pictures.
