please name this fish!
I got it at the LFS and they told me what it was, but i cant remember...i know hes not native for my tank, but hes got quite the personality and was in with the malawi's so i brought it home :)
Seems to be nocturnal as it hides in the driftwood all day and doesnt move much. i caught him wiggling out of his hole tonight!
I wish i had done some research on it first, but here i am...
my decorus doesnt seem too thrilled to have him in the tank though, lol
55 - 16 Malawi Chiclids, 3 Zebra Dainos, one Decorus, two Yo Yo's
10 - 1 male betta, 1 Striped Raphael, 4 Cory Cats, 4 Ottos, 1 ghost shrimp, 1 Bristlenose
29 - Lionhead goldfish, 3 Fancy Goldfish, Common pleco
29 - Saltwater, still in the planning/building stage

They're social critters, best to get several more to keep that one company. They do get rather squirrely on their own for too long, and will become a problem for the other fish w/out others of their own species to interact with. I had a lone red-tail botia that killed a few praecox rainbows in a 55, mainly Tanganykian tank.
