Settling down after shipping they finally have darkened up. Little smaller than I was expecting but that seems to be a trend lately .

For those wondering what an adult would look like



Reported to be glass bangers and solo fish in a 4 ft tank, and aggressive enough to pin tankmates to the corner. I would only add oscars as tankmates if you have a 6ft or longer tank. The oscar would also have to be more on the aggressive side as well.

After qt they will grow out with some herichthys . Sort of play it by ear. I am prepped to put hem on thier own if I have to. Even at 2" they are really interesting fish.
