Never though I would but here are pics of the 7 I got today!

They are between 3" and 5"
There are 2 with funky top fins the largest and smallest guys, they will breed true though, its just an environmental defect. Personally I think its cute and I love the color on them!

Now guess how much they cost me?

I had 8 discus, goldens and mandarian Passions. I gave them to a friend of mine who is a professional breeder when he lost a whole bank of breeders, almost 40 adult breeders so he could rebuild.

If I every set my ro/di unit back up, he will restock me.

They are beautiful fish. You will love them.

Had mine with a large school of cardinal tetras, rummy nose, gold nugget plecos, and sterbai cories decorated with a ton of mopani wood and plants.

Miss that tank.

Nice fish you have.

They are in a PH of 7-7.5, its what they were raised in so they will be fairly easy till they get old enough to breed, one is getting close already :wink:
They are still fighting some to figure out the hierarchy in their new tank.... I'm sure they are close to settled though.
Tank mates are 4 old albino cory breeders and 3 male adolfoi corys, trying to get more for a full school of 9 or so, the albinos are just there to kick start the breeding process. The main breeders in the tank will be the adolfoi corys and if the discus end up breeding that's a great thing too!

I paid $30 for the 7 of them :twisted: My coworker breeds them! Of course I didn't get his best stock out of the juvy tank but thats fine with me!
I'm loving them so far! They are defiantly not slow dull fish, they are always doing something! One of the blue diamonds has decided he (yup saw a tube!) does not like one leaf on one of the crypts and keeps trying to push it out of the way :lol:
Here is a video I took of them, just click it :wink:

Jim I have plenty of pics of plecos and cats I haven't posted yet :lol: :lol: :lol:

If they breed they breed if they don't they don't, at this point they are eye candy...... with tons of personality! I have the tank near my computer so I can just look over and stare at them 8)
