Finally got the photos :D
As said in other topics by me I ordered 3 Three Lined Apistos almost a month ago. They've been doing very well and now my smallest, sub-dominant female is eating along with the male and dominant female. Unfortunately the only way to get them to eat pellet food atm is to overfeed them so there's food floating all over the tank so they have something to chase. It really works.. but it leaves me having to siphon the gravel and do an 80% water change Well past that, onto what I had to say was I found a macro focus setting when playing around with my phone's camera and by god did it allow me to get some good pictures of the fish. I only managed to capture the male and the sub-dominant female. The other female was hiding when I was photographing them and I couldn't find her. I later found her laying behind the heater, on top of the suction cup that attaches the heater to the wall, sneaky little fish XD
The male wasn't showing too bright colors today but you can see the hints of blue on his body and yellow in his fins.
Here's the male:

In one of the pictures you can clearly notice that my Olive Nerites are breeding

So tiny! They don't look very happy to have their pictures taken, but I appreciate seeing them.When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

Oh I know XD they're a bit skittish around my phone. They've gotten used to me more though. I come close and gently tap the glass with my finger nail and my male comes out of his little cave and stares at me.
And boy are they tiny. The female pictured here isn't even an inch long!! The gravel in their tank is standard aquarium gravel so that's a good reference for size. The male is just shy of 1 1/2" he's really growing quite fast.
