    Here are some photos. They are a cute bunch even tho some are pretty small. I tried to feed them but they are not touching anything for now. I really hope they will lose black stripes later on, maybe i will buy more plants to cover the back ground so they dont see too much black....

    Vibrant colors and looking nice! Did you say you got them from Stendker? The fins on the blue diamonds are very odd shape. Sometimes camera angle plays trick on the viewer. Do they appear odd in person, different from the other strains finnage?

    Thank you! Yes you are correct, the blue diamonds have longer fins than usual but maybe the camera shows a bit too much. They are not directly from Stendker as they sell only to retailers. They are from a hatchery in Belgium where they buy Stendker couples and then they sell the offspring.

    The BD shape is called angle fin strain. It is a deformity that some folks like and are bred for this these days. Bull dog is another deformity that once was a cull, but these days odd things is what people go for.

    It's been 2 days and i'm still trying to make them eat. They are coming to the glass, they are curious when i drop the food but they wont even try it. I end up siphoning 30 mins later. Is this normal?

    Sorry that was "angel fin". Also called "sharkfin" and "boomerang" these days. The more pronounced fins look like some of the discus in this link. https://www.google.com/search?q=ange...pCnZ6XM:&vet=1
