Hi kross,
these are really beautiful fishes but definitely not the right tank mates for shrimps :p . I wish you look with breeding them. I bred only once pearcock gudgeons but that's not that difficult.

best regards

Robert

hi robert,

in fact i'm keeping one of them with my malayans.... :p i think as long as it's well fed, he probably won't touch the shrimps... i'll be monitoring it closely though. :smile: i would like to breed it if i can get a female... :biggrin: too bad i got 2 males....i think. :confused:

doesnt look like a shrimp-friendly fish....
seems like one of those that will help themselves with your shrimps when feel like to.... as a big feast once a while :D

gosh!!! :eek:

sorry to hear that....
but u can think on the bright side... with the fresh protein intake, maybe the color will be enhanced and finnage more well developed?

just jokin' :p

Sorry to hear of the Malayan demise. It is a beautiful fish though. Are the eyes always that iridescent, or is the camera flash creating that? It's creeping me out a little bit. :inquisiti

yup, the eyes look spooky especially when it's flaring.... and these pics were taken without flash. :D

I don't think I could own a fish like that. It would give me the creepy crawlies every time I looked at the tank. True albinos (lacking pigment in the eyes as well) and blind cave fish also creep me out pretty badly. :bs_offtop
