    think your big one may be Pangio myersi
    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.

    Pretty!!!

    The markings are distinctively different! Don't think they are that common in the shops right?

    Cheers,
    I have dwarf cichlids in my tanks! Do you?

    Cheers,
    Not common... well, at least not to me. Haven't seen this in the FLS ever since.

    If I remember correctly, picked this fella up from Ben's some 8 to 9 months ago. Been in my tank for this long without knowing exactly what it is.

    yes confirm the big fat orange one is P. myersi, the small one not too sure. the expert ask you to get a clearer full body profile and if possible to see the position of the fins.
