Juvenile Parosphromenus nagyi just beginning to colour up. A flash doesn't do much for the fluorescent colours on these while it's forming.

Hi Eric, I also have a pair of P. phoenicurus at the same stage, they appear a bit more shy and difficult to photograph. At the moment they are in pH 6 while in the holding tank then will go into black-er water at pH4 - pH5 for breeding. EC around 30ms - 40ms and temp of 26c for breeding.
I'll give you a shout when/if they breed :)

We really need to get these endangered fish into Ireland. I'm going to do my best. Sometimes they are available in lfs but usually sold as P. deissneri, which they aren't, this is not to say they shouldn't be purchased, they are usually Parosphromenus sp. "Bintan" or P. sp "Blue Line" both of which are species which are currently unnamed as yet.
Anyone wanting more information on these little jewels of Indonesia and Malaysia can join or visit The Parosphromenus Project and learn a bit more. luvit.me/2auDdIs
