Excellent Amanos

These Amanos are thriving in my tank, cleaning everything and eating everything I’ve fed them. I’m very happy with these robust new additions to my tank.

Shy guys

I got these guys about two months ago along with some java moss... I have literally spotted them only twice since introducing them to the tank. They are still rather small but are keeping things pretty clean.

Getting big already

All my Amano showed up alive and healthy. They are finally coming out during the day and they have grown a lot since I last saw them. Fast and fair shipping. Will be purchasing more.
