Cryptoheros panamensis @ 1"
Thursday, this week I obtained a group of Cryptoheros panamensis these guys are tiny with the largest of all of them being 1 1/2". Some of them are already showing the beginnings of the great coloring these guys are known for. These guys are not commonly seen in the hobby and I cannot understand why not. As adults these guys are gorgeous!
Within minutes of being in the tank they were begging for food and so far have been very interactive
Enjoy.

Not bad looking as adults, though I prefer Africans for color overall. How's their disposition as adults? Are they as easygoing as HRP's, or closer to the convict side of the family?
