So, I was a little concerned about my male RT Mota.....other than body shape, really doesn't look like the RT males I have seen......but then I found this Mo Devlin pic.....& it turns out I have "Rio Blanco" color variant:



My male looks just like this. Look @ 3:35 on this YT video:



This is a Mo Devlin pic....I make no claims on it & am just using it for illustration purposes.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

Nice looking fish. How old is yours in the video?

Well....I got him last Oct. @ ThatPetPlace in Lancaster, he was about maybe an inch or so.......now he's around 3"+....I actually have 2, one that is much smaller, which I believe to be female.........I would guess he's around 11 months or so, +/-.........I am in the hunt for a 90GL on the cheap, I will build a stand....I definitely want to try breeding this color variant, you don't see many, but this is a nasty species......I am also seeking a female N. Beani, & may try to breed them also, but that will be difficult; to say they don't like con-specifics is an understatement!! :evil:

Wow that is a stunner. If yours ends up looking like him, that'd be sweet.

Go do a water change - the solution to pollution is dilution.
