    Some close-up shots of my fishes….:Happy: I have those lovely furcatus in my 100L moss tank (species tank) for 3 years now, with many succesful breedings… ;) they are already 5-5.5 cm (max. size).... I would like, to thank my friend Raven (Alex Korakis) for his incredible "shots"....:Happy:

    Thank you my friend royvd. :Happy:You have to keep at least 1 male and 3 females, if you want your fishes having a normal coexistence, breedings etc. This fishes prefer to live as a group in large tanks more than 100lts…you have to think also their final maximum size, their energy and their activeness. I believe that its not good to put them with microrasbora. When furcatus will start growing up you will have problems with their behavior and their sovereignty in a small tank.

    John N, Chazzam thank you for your kind words …:Happy: Chazzam their tank is working for 5 years with different aquascapes (but always as a moss tank) so, its time to decommission it.. and making a paludarium. Here is a picture of how it is right now...;) I have already started removing the mosses. sorry for the quality of the picture…

    I still can't get over the awesome looking fish you have. It almost looks like a female betta. Do you know if its related to that species in any way?

    Paludariums are Hydrophyte's speciality if you even need some help, I'm sure he'll be willing to lend a hand.
