New Firemouths

My new Firemouths!

Just came back from the lfs and i traded in most of my fish from my 55 (heavily overstocked and it was impossible to keep the tank proper.....[got alot more cleaning to just get the waiste] the fish were 1 normal sengal bichir, 1 albino senegal bichir, 1 AFB, and 6 silver dollars) for my new arrivals. For those fish i traded in they gave me almost 40 dollars in store credit and i got 2 firemouths plus ghost shrimp (and some toys for my cockatiel)

I think i got a pair.... 1 has alot more red and its more vibrantly colored ntm the slope on the head differs slightly. The only one that comes out of hiding right now is the one i believe to be male.
