A new dwarf came in a news letter... thought id share
Laetacara araguaiae "Buckelkopf" has only been in the hobby for a short time, but it has quickly become very popular with fans of dwarf cichlids. With a full grown adult size of just under an inch and a half and a reputation for being peaceful with other species of fish, it's really no surprise. Pairing this with the amazing colors of a nuptial male offers a nearly ideal dwarf cichlid for a small South American community tank. The little Buckelkopf is an oval fish with a rounded snout and caudal fin. Males show an absolutely dazzling coloration - a steel-grey face and dorsal edge fade towards the rear and belly of the fish to bright electric blue. This is overlain by vivid golden stripes and spots along the lateral line and a golden colored eye. Their fins are marked brilliantly with electric blue spots and blotches over gilded yellow with thick black outlines. Females are much paler with significantly less color, but their presence prompts the males to show their loveliest colors.

I saw those also, they're gorgeous little fish. I'd definitely purchase some if my two tanks weren't already stocked with a dwarf cichlid.My 10 Gallon Aquarium Journal

Do you mean this fish is new for The Wet Spot, or this is a different color morph or something? I guess it's still relatively new but this fish has been around a few years now.
This is the same fish right?

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
