no they are not Ryan they are heros sp. iniridae

basically just like sevs but the species is split due to breeding methods


his will get some spots as it grows

I really hop the swords spread out for you! it will look so nice...

and you know how great I think the Heros are


The leave floated for a few days but now lays in the bottom this is used to make the water softer... I have 5 in the tank and another 5 in the sump toghether with black peat.

The swords are more or less okay... some leaves are brown maybe due to lack of fertilizers and better light... but I'm keeping this way to see how it goes... The anubias (near the wood) are OK but the valisnerias are beeing dizimated :sick: The heros are killing them one or two days more and it only have the roots on :(

The wood I have allready takes more than 60% of the tank...

ABout the music it was intentional because the 1st video only has 3 minutes and the music has about 7 and on the 2nd video you can enjoy it almost to the end :)

But I don,t like them hidden from me :silly: ... and this are very curious, when I arrive they all showup next to the front glass.

Besides they have the large wood and they dont spend much time hidden on its back.

More pictures or video upon arrival of the rest of the fish... Biotodoma or Geophagus Iporangensis or pellegrinni...
