I got a voucher for a free fish today, so I ran out to the LFS and got some AFF. I was lucky that I got a male and female. Has anyone here kept these fish before? I didn't do any research, but they seem to fit into my tank well.

I browsed the page the The P linked, and it seems they can adapt to a WIDE range of conditions.

I had three females in a 120 a few years back and they ate soo much algea that they had trouble swimming. Great fish but I've been told that only one male can live in a tank but multiple females are okay. Also they have a short lifespan, 2 years but wonderful fish, I think you will love em.

Check with your lfs, maybe they can order, that's how I got mine. Ask for Flag fish, that's how the supplier had them listed.

My LFS truly sucks. Unlikely that they can/will order jack.
