Very nice fish. Looks like a latralis-butched the spelling- off shoot. I'd go with at least a 29gal heavy planted tank and live foods. Great find update the thread.

it do Look like latralis , there are a number of C. audax populations. can hybrid
all populations should be kept in a species tank only. I have been keeping and breeding los pinos for about 7 years.
Allotoca diazi is a very nice looking fish easy to keep very rare in the hobby .

Some more nice fish! I love when people come on here to talk about and show off fish that are less commonly kept. Do you keep any other Goodeids? I'd guess at least one Skiffia based on your username.

BWG. thank you for replying I keep and breed all of the skiffia, what’s your favourite goodeids?

Skiffia lermae (female
Under certain Light conditions they reflect a nice yellow colour on the lower part of the belly.

is there any one here keeping goodeids?

BWG 03-31-2014 07:42 PM

Sorry Skiffia,I missed your post before. I have never kept Goodeids, but they do fascinate me. I appreciate you showing off your fish and hope you're not done doing so. I also hope their are some other keepers on here that chime in.

I realize you keep pure populations, so not sure why I'm asking this, but how do you feel about Skiffia 'black beauty' given that it is a hybrid, but one started for noble reasons?

If you don't mind ,I've got a couple of question .Are Limias considered Goodeids? I understand Goodeids are quite touchy when it comes to water temps, how do you deal with too warm conditions?
