    I normally use Krylon Fusion but I'm guessing it's only sold at craft stores and places like that...decided to pick this up since I was at a hardware store at the time.

    No noticeable difference yet but I haven't filled the tank up so not sure if viewing through water will make a difference.

    I have pygmy sunfish (e.zonatum/evergladei/gilberti) , l.ommata, and het formosa together in one tank and all is well. The formosa are more aggressive feeding-wise, and a bit larger (around) than l.ommata.

    I'd probably go with 6 pygmy sunfish and 8-10 ommata in a planted out 10g.

    Unfortunately both males and females tend to look bland except for a dominant male or two, depending on how much tank space they have to work with. Let me know if you have any other ??s or need help sourcing some.

    I'm monitoring aquabid but also thinking about ordering from this place: http://www.aquaculturestore.com/fwve...l#pygmysunfish

    Only thing that worries me is getting a mixed lot with too many males/too little females.

    That's cool. I can beat their price by at least 50%, if you are after any of the species that I have, just let me know.

    Well that's exciting! Which breeding male is nicer on the eyes, the evergladei or the gilberti?

    Gilberti tends to be more colorful. I'm actually heading out this friday to try to find more, they seem to be rather elusive on this side of the state. So far I have dozens of evergladei and maybe a few gilberti. The females of the two are very similar (as well as the subdominant males), and I've been too lazy to do ray counts since I don't plan on segregating them by species just yet.

    If you do happen to get enough gilberti to sell I would definitely be interested. Only thing is that I am about a month away from getting the fish as I want to wait until I move.

    It's all good, I may actually have enough to accommodate you by then anyway, so that is perfect for me. gilberti seem to be difficult to find in the trade. Unfortunately the closest place I can collect them at is over an hour drive away and I'm not too familiar with the area.
