    here are some pics, this is a fairly shy species whenever i bring the phone camera they dart everywhere.

    there is one dominant male that is a stunner and a few subdominant males showing the green on their broad sides.

    this is a great breeding colony, wish i had the space to keep them.

    After further research I found out that this species is on the C.A.R.E.S. List, I want to postpone the sale of these fish untill I get a definite breeding group.

    once established I will sale the rest of the colony.

    Good luck growing out the group and getting them to breed. Make sure to spread some fry around when you get it.

    You may also want to take a minute and post up about them in the CARES section of the forum. This will help spread the word about what club members are keeping cares fish and their experiences in keeping them.
