Has anyone kept these fish before, or has any good sources? I plan to keep a group in my 240 litre when I move out some fish. I know the females grow to 8 cm and the males slightly smaller. The specs I'm looking for are:
-Ratio of males and females;
-What kind of decor they like (especially bogwood?)
-Compatibility with Rams, Black Neon Tetras, Rummynoses and Glass Catfish?

Thanks in advance to anyone who has info.

Blair

I read that goodieds come from central america and they probably need water of medium hardness which is different from the requirements of those species, but a slightly alkaline pH will probably suffice. also, I'm not sure if this applies to all goodieds or just skiffia lermae but they might need cooler night temperatures in the 60s. it's not much, but hope it helps.

Yeah, that seems to be the only other piece of info I read. Unfortunately, this fish isn't very well documented on the internet nor at my local library. I did manage to find this though. Also it appears that it's called Red Tailed Goodeid by some on the internet. But so far this appears to be the best page. If anyone has info, please come forward, I want to hear from you!
