    hi, sam this fish online, and find it very interisting.

    Does anyone keep them? if so, please share your pics and comments on them?

    The whole school raises fry, they say, even older fry helping young fry...

    And i love the look of them too

    Those are really nice fish.If you are not close to a breeder get some from @Jack Stone you wont be sorry.
    Remember they are going to breed pretty quickly so I would get a small shoal and keep them in a 4 foot tank min, if you are going to keep the fry.....just my 2c:blink1:

    One has to see what works for them but not to the detriment of the specie. many of us buy on impulse without considering the FINAL requirements of the specie.

    The brichardi, should you end up with a pair will provide you with 100s of fry, which should be removed at some stage ... Yes , a few generations will live together and the juveniles taking care of the fry, but as soon as there is a sense of overcrowding you will start to lose fish

    I'm really going to look into it...

    I do have guppies, shrimp, white clouds and a pleco (all in different tanks)

    Then i also have my convict cichlids...

    And yes, i can admit, have my convicts in my 150 liter tank, and i can say, i love them.

    Never gave me so much trouble or issues.
    Since I've started with the fish keeping hobby up until now, they are my number 1 and really a pleasure to keep.
    That's why I'm also considering the Brichardi...

    Don't really see the appeal? The pics look fairly drab. Do they have an interesting social structure?

    It's the shape of the fins and the colour accents that do it for me..

    Ah! Thanks @RoGe. That picture does the fish some justice. Very pretty!

    i love the fins and also the social structure. The fact that all of them jump in and raise fry sounds amazing

    I don't keep them but do admire them, another name is the fairy cichlid I think?as far as I've seen breeding pairs can be very aggressive and have been known to kill other species unless you have the space for a community setup.
