 My Information
Comments:

The colours on this fish are amazing. The male who is the largest at the moment has blood red fins and when he turns his colours are two tone blue :-)

These fish (especially the male) are the bravest of my tank. When I clean the gravel he will be swimming right next to the cleaner trying to get bits of food. If my hand is in the tank moving items he is never too far away.

The male seems to be the leader of the tank and lets everyone know it. They will swim with any fish out there but tend to keep in there group of three.
