3 mahachai females and 2 males

and 2 juvenile pairs of siamorientalis!

The siamorientalis is a real find as this species was until 2012 considered a colour variant of the b. imbellis. Even in the market in Bangkok I did not find this species.

yes, they are all good. Since I am leaving for the Netherlands tomorrow; I have only put them in clean water and fed once.

In Mtl the siamorientalis will go temporarily to Gary while I prepare space for them, and I have 2 tanks where I can try to breed mahachai. Both are 10 gallons and will have no other inhabitants.

Interesting ownership problem if they accidentally spawn and create lotsa fry. GaryE has that effect on fish.
