A few pics of wild Scriptaphyosemion geryi. Currently ~1.25 inches - should be quite nice when full grown at ~2 inches.

Male - nice specimen- part of the caudal fin was missing and is now growing back.

Females - neat looking in their own way.

I find the ideal water temperature seems to be 72F - any higher they start to hang near the surface as if in need of extra oxygen, any lower they start to hover over the heater and become inactive. At 72F they are actively swimming about feeding well. Thanks to Jeff for sending the nice specimens. (This thread should probably be in "African Tankmates" - as the java moss isn't really biotope correct. )
