I use 12 inch cubes for most of my coccina species pairs. I find a dark substrate and tannin heavy water brings out the best colours on these fish.

Here's my juvenile male.


Here's his father.

I think they are 7 gallons. I have a pair and a couple dozen juveniles/fry in there right now and my tank is only filled 3/4s so it's probably really only like 5 gallons.

They are not big fish, but they can be aggressive towards each other so I always recommend a decent amount of cover.

Great photography, Setsuna. That low cross-lighting is very dramatic.

Beautiful Macs.

Thanks ^^

My male flares at my female but it seems my female shows no interest in him. What got me thinking is maybe macrostomas select their mate and keep it forever you know? LMAO thats just me hahaha
