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.

firemouths are alot of fun to feed
they have extendo lips that suck everything up
oh yea (u proly no this but) males have a longer/more pointed dorsal fin :D

I hope they do too. But i saw them fighting for a cave today.

I couldnt tell by dorsals but there were 2 that had paired off from the rest.... i tried to get them (one was very dull an one was very brightly colored) Ill post pics when can.
