Those are either very tiny kuhlis, one very big snail, or photoshopped.

They are cute. :) I wish I saw mine more, the nocturnal little buggers. I've heard they can be hard to breed. I don't know. I have a tank full of fish that should in theory breed or at least try (rummynoses, cories, gouramis) but no one does. Boo.

I really want another African butterfly fish, so sad that mine went MIA. To bad my aquarium has a open back so I can't.(they jump really good, and even glide a little)

Is that your MIA ABF? He was gorgeous! I had no idea they had such markings. He almost looks like a moth.

Yup that's him, and he actually doesn't look as pretty as he was since this was a week after that time he jumped out so his pectorals have messed up edges. I'm trying to think of a way I can cover the back so I can have one. Only bad thing is I'll have to buy crickets and condition it to eat pellets and flakes.

All the pics I've seen of ABFs were of ones that were just plain brown. He has gorgeous markings on his back.

You can use plastic clingwrap to cover up the back of the tank. It's what I use over my wild betta tanks as they used to jump out all the time.

Now I only get jumpers if I haven't stuck it back down properly.

Mine are very sneaky, too. It probably doesn't help that I feed them after everyone else has gone to sleep. I can't wait to get that tank stocked with cardinal tetra and gourami. I've really fallen in love with cardinals.

LOL! Those aren't my fish. If you can't tell I'm terrible at photographing my aquariums. I wish that was my tank because that means I could get photos of it :P
