Pseudo saulosi mini community

130 litres
Brief Description of Tank
This is my Tropiquarium 88 tank - dimensions are 85 x 37 x 48.5 cm.

Ever since I saw John Labbe's saulosi tank last year I've wanted to start my own micro community of these wonderful fish.

I finally took the plunge Oct 06 and decided to order two wild pairs to get me started. The intention is to find some good looking fish from different sources in the future to mix up the bloodlines and increase the stocklist.

I currently have two wild pairs, of which one male resides in my bigger tank. Re-introducing the two males together did not go according to plan so I've seperated them again.

April 07 - lost one tank bred female to aggression.

All comments are welcome.

Nice looking tank! I am so jealous and mad at myself for not sticking with my plans for an all saulosi colony!
