oddball fish?.... that would be a good class for our next Fish of the Month contest in mid December. So those of you who have with an "oddball" fish..... we hope you will enter the FOTM contest in mid December.
Dicrossus filamentosus or dicrossus maculatus if your water is soft enough and tank mates are peaceful. And I mean, like, really soft enough.
If you have enough you may see the males lock jaws and barrel roll around to impress a female to mate with (very soft conditions for breeding). Loser male usually takes off once he's lost and before any significant damage occurs (keep an eye on though).
I'm looking at them as a possibility for a biotope I'm slowly building, neat and interesting to watch at one of my lfs'.
I actually don’t have the tank with water in it yet I am going to start cycling it to for about a month and a half but I am going to put tropical fish in the tank the other stocking chooses will be based on the oddball or main show fish.
