    Default New Fish in Discus tank: biotodoma cupido

    In may I bought five wild caught biotodoma cupido from wetspot, after a lengthy qt period and one dying, the four remaining have been added to my discus tank. These came to me really small, much smaller than I had expected and too small for shipping in my opinion, but they were packaged well and were eating flake within one day of adding to my qt tank. they really took off once I introduced live mosquito larvae and fdbw. This past weekend I moved them into my 75gal discus tank, and they are doing really well. They love to hang out with the corydoras, and they love rooibos tea. They are growing slower than I had imagined but I see growth, right now they are smaller than the two dicrossus I have in there but they will soon pass those I believe. Quite the inquisitive little fish, and they often use their fins like arms to stand on the sand, which is weird but cute. Some pictures are below.

    Very nice. Hard fish to find and even harder to breed from what I have read.
