Hi all!

I’m thinking of getting 6 of these for my A. Atahualpa tank.
But first i’d like to hear if any of you have had them before and if you could tell a little about them. Info on them web is rather sparse. All i know, i got from tomC’s site and what little “seriously fish” and “fishbase” could tell.
Also i’d Like to know if they can be found together in the wild? -same question goes for my sailfin tetras?

I have been eyeing them for quite some time on my lfs, import list. So now is the time to try them out.
I hope they don’t jump much as i don’t have a lid on the tank.
I’ll be sure to take some photos once they are in the tank.

as promised.. here is a few pictures of my new fish.
i bought 6, but one of them sadly turned the wrong way shortly after they got in the tank.
they are fully grown as far as i can see (-they have been on the importers list for some time).
i'm looking forward to see them once/if they get a bit more color.

evening all!

i thought i was time to add a few more pictures here.
the fish have really coloured up since these first pictures. i have also seen the first breeding attempts, though it's roughly a month ago now.

i am still a bit uncertain, if they actually are p. obermuelleri. they look a lot like the cf. brevis, i find if i do a google search. -i'd love to hear your thoughts.
