Do you like Peacock Gudgeon fish?

This is a new one they have at the LFS I really like it and am researching to see if it would work in my 20 gall planted tank.

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

i had one a few years ago....it was the last one in the tank, and i didnt realize it had a curved spine, but it lasted about a year in my bar tank till it sucumbed to its deformity......I am still keeping my eye open for them again, if i see them, i will buy a few for my tetra tank.......They are a nice little colorful fish.....very peacful, but i wouldnt put it with larger fish, or it could become food....Here is a pic of the one i had, you can see its curved spine....."S" shaped.....

Thanks you guys I hoped you would like them. I am thinking about puting 4 of them in my 20 gallon planted with 7 neon tetra, and 7 Harliquin Rasporas. Do you think that would be ok for the tank?

Kindest Regards,
Amanda
