    Sorry for the blurry photos, little guy never stays still. 90% sure he's male but he is our first boesemani. About 1.75 inches right now.

    looks like you've got a dyed white skirt tetra in there, too. You might want to read up on dyed fish:
    300 gallon mega tank: sailfin pleco, clown loaches, silver dollars, roseline sharks, congo tetras, new world cichlids
    125 gallon office tank: Africian cichlids, synodontis catfih
    75 gallon community tank: bolivian rams, black skirt tetras, dwarf neon rainbowfish, corys, harlequin rasboras, otos, bristlenose and bulldog plecos, assassin snails, various shrimp
    60 gallon goldfish tank: fancy goldfish

    It's true. The pair of them are actually some of the oldest fish in the tank. Guy at the store told us they were natural and we found out when we got home and looked them up. They are healthy and happy though, so they got that going for them.

    Don't buy dyed anymore tho as the stores will keep ordering and selling them and we want them out of the US.

    Your boesemani is a male. They are social fish and should be with more of their own. Looks like you are picking out one of everything when all should have their own species with them.

    Don't worry, was a long time ago before we knew much about fish, very much agree not to buy altered fish. He has made pals with our f/m dwarf rainbows and they play most of the day in the powerhead. Wanted to see how he did and make sure he was male before getting another. Don't let the picture fool you, those are just a couple of the 26 fish in our 75gal.
