    Thanks Eric, these guys are in a dark tea strained tank. They are not as shy as I expected and are starting to eat Al's FDBWs. John only feeds bloodworms so a bit of a transition for them. They are still a bit broody with me but slowly improving.

    I want to see them settle a bit Phil. Whenever I place anything close to the tank they go cower under the heater and I am about to get busy with my daughter who arrives today. I will soon.

    Mine have been the same way on and off lately... I am hoping it is just still and adjustment period as things are new. Do you run a light on this tank, if so how often? I have a light arriving today that I am excited about. I think that the placement of my tank mixed with the bow front may be throwing them shadows or something that is making them less friendly...

    Love these fish, especially because they are small and "grow-able"! Where did you get them? I would be interested in buying some.

    Greg,

    This thread is in the sponsor section for John Snookn - who is a wild importer from Florida.

    He has updated stock lists on his website and you can email or call him! Good luck! lol

    Phil, I am not running a light over the tank. Only room lights. I think you have the same fixture I have. If so there is a sunrise/set setting which is quite dim. Also the color presets are dim-able also. Run the tank with no lights and observe. If the fish are acting normal without lights then that gives you a starting point. Also consider some rooibos tea. It will add tannins, darken the water and dim any overhead lights.

    Greg, like Phil said John has them now. There are two tanks of them. He also has Rio Negro Heckel babies which are a bit smaller (and cheaper) then the Unini Heckels.
