I picked up a pair of these from Dave @ the big GSAS (Seattle Aquariumclub) auction a month or so back...are yours from the same source asDave's? Just curious if you've noticed any color variation in yourspawns, or if they all look more or less the same?
My male has blue fins, purplish polka-dots, and a white belly-- but noneof the pictures I've turned up of A. hera online look much like him atall...not sure if that's a locale difference, or if there is just lots ofnatural varience in their colors and patterns....

Hi, How large are these fish you got? A. hera usually not over an inch and a half. Does the female look like the pictures in books? Sincerely, Sandy
