    Presumably this is the Tanichthys micagemmae from Vietnam. But there is another species T. thacbaensis, any idea what it looks like?





    any idea if the last fish a female?

    By the way fish is available at Eco Culture.

    Looks like we're seeing fishes from Vietnam these days.

    What is the status of this fish? Is this fish farm bred or wild? Although it's not on the IUCN redlist, I have read that it is known only from one creek in Vietnam when if was first described. If they are collected for the trade, would they be in danger of over collecting?

    What a difference in color between the second and third photo!! I think it's more of a fright coloration than anything else.

    I was told that C328 has some by MrTree when he was here the other week, but it was infested with white spot. Shame.

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

    all are showing fright colours as the lateral stripe is not very intense. pix 1 and 2 are due to difference in angle and also WB adjustment.

    Certainly seems like it. But yours is so much more colored up. Shows how important it is to condition the fish before photography. What a world of difference.
