Indeed! I keep finding these rare fish in the Amano and Amanoesque aquaria photos as I go about my research. Another oddity (because not in the general trade here yet) was Megalamphodus roseus. And both indeed were in Japanese tanks. And both, as I see now, were described as new to Science in the late 20th century. By the way, the M. roseus is also nice. Is it easier to find than Nannostomus? (and easier to care for?).oh wow....that's an interesting fish
Generally when a specific species requires special parameters (ie. like soft water, acidic water using peat, leaf litter, etc.) to thrive they are considered difficult.I beg to differ with your differing. I have found them pretty easy to keep but have not bred them. They fared much better then cardinal tetras did in the same tank. Anubias Design has them relatively often. Heavily planted tank. w/some peat in the filter, ei co2, etc.
