Congrats on some really neat fish!
Keep those ocellatum *cold*, as they come from the highlands of Gabon and
the Congo (Du Chaillu Mts.). The primagenium will take higher temps, but
the OCE will not do well at anything above about 21C (70F). They would
actually like it better even colder, IME.
I just could not keep them down in the 65-68F region in either Palo Alto
or in Fremont. After several attempts with those and their cohabitants,
coeleste, I decided to quit killing the poor things for no good benefit.
