    That is the A.cacatoide, but aquarium strain to get the red. It's beautiful though.

    @Dinky Super red. It's on the list, so... :) It's one of the easiest to look after, so you're in luck there!

    I'm having an awful time deciding between Taeniacara candidi
    candidi1.jpg
    and A. bitaeniata
    DSC_0037.jpg
    for a blackwater biotope-ish setup. Help me! Which would you choose?

    Can we perhaps start another thread to give an idea of who wants what? For example I'm a sucker for the flowerhorns and some of the bigger cichlids

    @PsyXe - It's a very difficult choice to make. I'll have to go with @Vis on this one - both!! I would probably have gone for the Candidi.

    I can tell everyone this much....I wish I had an extra tank or ten and wads of cash!!!! There's a couple of ones that I would just :love: to get!

    @Supa Max - maybe someone will start breeding them soon. I've noticed however that you guys down the coast seem to have access to them more readily at your lfs?
