N. rachovii has quite small fry, which, until you have some experience, can
be difficult to feed. Another killietalk message mentioned N. guentheri as
a good beginning Notho, but I think they suffer from the same problem. The
fry are small. To get you fingers wet with Nothos I would suggest N.
melanospilus. The fry are large and easily manage brine shrimp nauplii.
