What the kids do when you turn your back

Just came home a while ago and there sitting staring me in the face is my first little rili baby. I checked my tanks this morning and couldn't see any but sure enough there"s one there now. Gosh they are very pale compared to the Reds I have had. I wasn't expecting any until next week so woohoo it's started. Have 4 more females due in the next week or 2.

There's no trust when it comes to shrimp! Maybe on a house or car or boat or plane but not shrimp, YO!

Don't worry bout it ineke, same thing happens to me with my little ones, as hard as I try I can't see them when I want but when not looking for them they will appear! Ask 2OFUS we were looking at my tank for a while looking for the little shits but as soon as he left I spotted them.

      Yeah, that would be about the max I would put into a tank that size.

      Yeah, mellis are extremely rare from what I've heard. Only seen them once on gumtree, but sold out by the time I enquired. Apparently some people have them from ANGFA meetings, and otherwise you can barely find them in the hobby.  Any idea whether I could fit 10 of any in a 5 gal?
    • jayc
      I don't think you can go wrong with any of them. They are all so nice.  As you said, signifer is easier to find. Don't know of any store selling mellis.
    • Crabby
      Okay, the native tank is finally happening. Not at the fishroom, but as part of my new rack. I wanna do DRN, Chameleons, and maybe DAE. I really want to use some pseudomugils though, but I can't decide which variety. I'm thinking my options are signifer, gertrudae, mellis and tenellus. Leaning towards signifer because they're easy to find, small, cheap, and the closest out of all to Vic. I would really really love to do mellis though, if someone can direct me to a source? Would mean so much to me to breed an endangered species that I adore. How many pseudomugils could I fit in the tank though? It's a 5 gal I think, dimensions are 40x23x25 (LxWxH). I was told by a signifer breeder I could fit 10 signifer into it. Tenellus would be less of course, as they are larger. Plants are bacopa monnieri and vallisneria nana (locally collected), val triptera, glosso, and maybe a flowering plant like nyphoides spongiosa.  Planning to use a natural rock/pebble substrate with some sand mixed in. Probably will use some rock hardscape, will collect those from the yarra, and have a piece of driftwood I plan to use already. Just wondering about those fish. And @Dave, when do you plan on shipping plants, shrimp and fish again? As I was probably gonna buy most of the stuff from you guys at AquaGreen.

      yup, I read this thread before posting.  I figure there must be at least two traits that are passed on to make these patterns, but don't know what they are.
