    I agree with SMB and Matt, sorry for the loss, and the wilds are that great combo of orange and gorgeous. They will stand out well. Live the banding on the wild type too. Just stunning!

    Thank you all :) And it's a definite wild type then. Tx so much for the opinions!

    @Slaphppy7 I think they were more popular years ago and made a recent comeback with the color morphs.

    Also, btw @Slaphppy7, you asked what size of QT I had planned. I have sanitized 33 (3' × 1' footprint) and a ~32g with a 32" × 18" footprint, but shallower. It is intended as an a pleco tank eventually. I'm thinking a 33g is better. And I'm unsure if I should try to set it up somewhere else, like not in the fishroom. I'm pretty good now with keeping everything separate, but....I'm just wondering if you had any suggestions?

    I'm sorry you lost your blue female.

    The regular flame would be my vote too -- and for the same aspect that you are drawn to. Those bars make their coloration stand out nicely.

    Either tank would be fine IMO...as long as you disinfect all of your equipment so you don't cross contaminate your tanks, fishroom should be fine

    So I'm putting my flame tetra purchase on hold. Hopefully I can still get some the next time. I came home from a 6-day vacation to a very cloudy overfed 120g with a dead angelfish. The water was disgusting. My poor angelfish's body was covered in slime and fungus. I have a lot of cleaning to do still. I siphoned really well and was still swishing a brine shrimp net around trapping fungused food for hours in the lowered water level. All this just getting back from vacation. Arg :(

    I hid the food and asked him not to feed the fish last time (but didn't mention it this time), he brought food down from the forever QT Lymphocystis tank in the spare bedroom

    At least he didn't notice the fish in the fishroom like two years ago when all my tanks were totally wrecked. Regardless, I'll have to get this cleaned up before I get new fish. I think it will take a few weeks of vigorous siphoning and cleaning.
