Yup looks like S.atropurpereus to me - enjoy them dude
Thanx wil do. They look very skinny. Much more active now. Getten more colour in the fins. A bit of red
NICE fishies! but yeah, I agree - they do look skinny. You might try growing some algae stones for them? I used round pebbles suspended close to the surface in my outside barrels to supplement another algae grazers diet... worked well! I just swapped them out whenever the pebbles in the tank were clean... are they eating off the algae block?
I already put some river rocks in a bucket with water outside where they get the most sun. yes they do it off it. Im very glad. I didt knoe if they would

:top: grand! keep us posted!
Will do thanx for the advice. I still cant stop looking at the tank. Just the pfp leached some tannins but its okay for me.
Looks good - you are SO lucky to get them for that price!
Make sure your rocks is sitting on the bottom of your tank. It would also help if they had a little finer substrate.
They love digging little caves under rocks where they sleep at night. In course gravel they cant dig that well and if the rock is not on the bottom it can cave in on them. Otherwise try and provide natural little caves with some rocks.
Okay thanx for helping me. I can only get real river sand at the end of the month. Then i wil redo the tank. I cant jus top it wil finer sand wil sift thru the gravel?
They cab move pebbles small enough to fit in their mouthes but will dig easier with sand or just provide a small heap of river stones.
I have a few smal river stones. Just like stAck them or what? Im using them in a bucket outside to tey and get some algae
hehe okay what ive done is took some rocks smeered some of the tetra algae block onto the rocks. nice thin layer. (the algae block is like jelly) they seem to like it. so possible solution till the rocks outside grows algae
i wonder the sandrivier in freestate. if i can use that sand and just like clean it very good if i can use that? or just by poolfilter sand much less effort or PT hehe?
Some interesting fish you have there!
Thanx must say just want more
weird and wonderful fish. Always nice to see something different
Must say the 2 buggers are doing great. I just need more lighting in the tank. Just 1 problem. Its a jebo 30L tank with one 8w t5 light in it. As baught? And there isnt any more fittings to ad light?
DIY is the way to go
Some new pics?
