Been growing quite fast, surprisingly!
Can see the size now compared to the cherry barbs

All have very nice color, especially as small as they still are! & who doesn't love whiskery faces? Still, compared to the cherry barbs they seem skinny ;). Any guess as to genders? Early days yet...I think I see at least 1 male & maybe 2 females?...I'll reserve judgement for after they grow some more, lol. Keep the pics coming!

I only have the two still. Can't call the gender yet, theyre still barely 2 inches. The bigger guy i think may turn out to be male though, it's a little more feisty with the other one lol

For some reason I thought you had 4 now. I'll just put it down to typing while cooking, always distracted then. Could be a M & F or M & M? They have some growing to do...

Lots of growing still! Only about 2" right now, can reach 6". Apparently more common around 4" but I am gonna see if they reach larger.

I would love more, but theyre not a species I can just go and order online or find specifically in store. But I can keep looking still all the same. My understanding of them is they do loosely shoal in the wild, so there'd be no reason to purposely keep them solo if I can help it.

Getting bigger. Hoping by next month or two they should be big enough to move to the 135

As Dee said, they are looking fantastic! I love the orange eye line & the bright yellow neck (back of head?) dot. There's probably a better term for that place but you know what I mean, lol. A bit more orange in the tail & dorsal too. Better & better!

Does only 1 have "whiskers" or just different shots? I see the eye line is different between them, 1 horizontal, 1 more angled but barbels only show in 1 pic...interesting anyway...

Both fish have 2 pairs of barbels. Just sometimes they have them flat against their mouths, sometimes hanging down.

theyre getting fatter as fast as theyre growing longer lol

That's what I thought about the barbels. But in some fish it's more a sex determinate as to barbel length. Some barbs come to mind right now.

Fat fish are healthy happy fish! Yours are not obese like some overeaters can be, just "filling out" in a good way.

Keep up the pics please, we love them!
