    Beautiful Fish

    Very peaceful. A little skittish at first. I bought 5 - one jumped out of the tank but the rest are chill especially when they passed quarantine and headed to the big tank - so you might benefit from a lid at least until you see how they act in your aquarium. Love their silvery color, markings, and adorable black eyes. They haven't gotten their big fins yet, but they are perfect for my nano tank of cardinals, kubatai, green neons, and ottos.
