thanks for the kind words! If I do breed, this forum will be the one to hear about it! even though my olds will probably crack the sads at me hard for taking up even more space with my fishtanks HAHAHA!

Thanks 'Razzi, I wasnt taken on the colour at first, but the more I thought about it... The more I had to have them HAHA!

I'm in love with them! wayyy too colourful!

Well, I am currently looking into getting another tank 304x203x175mm made up to match my current tank that is divided into 2 which houses this pair...... IF I can EVER get a hold of a pair of "Black Devil" HM's they will be snapped up instantly (pending money of course) and put into the same setup as this pair are in at the moment.

I havent taken any new photo's lately as I havent had a lot of time to myself, they are going well, I might take the divider out of the tank to see how nicely they play with each other, but not overly sure just yet.

Well... I am rather unhappy at the moment, Friday afternoon I noticed my male acting VERY strange, had a closer look at him and it seemed to be covered in lice. I did a prompt dosing for it aswell as 90% water change, but unfortunately when I returned home yesterday he was no more :D seems it was a very bad case of lice and stressed him out way too quickly for me to treat in time...

I will get another CT copper mustard when someone gets one in to match the female (who is a complete bitch of a fish) but for now, I have purchased a red CT from the newest LFS in town..... I have been eyeing this one off for a few weeks (since they opened) and he has been rather active...

I will get a picture soon of him when I go back into my room to move the female into her side of the new tank. Rather disappointed at the moment with the loss... :o oh well, such is life.

what i could gather, looked like small grains of white sand (funnily enough I have that in my 3 ft tank), he would rub up against the anubia and hair grass which gave the indication of it being lice...... he probably had 15 od "specs" on him :D

if my new male wasnt so skittish i would have a picture of him already. will try again now.

I spoke to one of the "specialist" LFS's in town yesterday before I got home to find my male dead, he stated that due to the current drop in temps at night its highly likely that the lice etc have come out from that..... he mentioned that he had been fighting a lot of white spot aswell over the past week or so...... (different shop to this male is from)

Are you sure it was Lice and not Ich / Whitespot ?? Fish lice are not grainy like salt they are circular transparent dots with a black center that you can pull off the fish with tweezers i had a goldfish with it once and sucessfully removed it.

compared to whitespot
