Can't believe this guy actually kept still for long enough. They usually zoom off as soon as the camera appears :wink:

Cool pic! Like you, I can't believe he sat still so long. Mine tends to make quick occasional forays into the open, followed by a mad dash to cover once I'm seen.
You keep these in a river tank with hillstreams, don't you?
How is that working out?

They have been living with the Hillstreams for....ooh I forget...maybe a year. Absolutely no problems. they are perfectly peaceful fish. Just lately, they have been a little bolder and a bit more active.

I like the way they dart from cover to cover and sometimes just hang somewhere on Anubias or rockwork. Very handsome fish and all 3 are differently marked which makes them easily identifiable.

Very cool. I agree, that is one of the types I keep that I have never really got a good shot of.
