    Took some pics for an aquabid auction today and some turned out pretty good so I thought I'd share.

    Same fish in a brighter light, dim lighting/background/tannin water seems to make them stay dark.

    Thanks Wes, the pics are tinged a bit yellow because I've been adding tannins to see if it helps them get more comfortable. I have always kept them in regular soft tap water, so we'll see, they come from some nearly pitch black water sometimes.

    Maybe one day, if enough people start breeding them in aquaria they'll probably be common fare in the next decade. They spawn readily so it shouldn't be much of an effort.
