I bred quite a few of these as they make a stunning display in planted tanks and because you can warn people they are like pirhanas it stops people adding more fish:wink: ( very useful in tanks you only see a couple of times a month.)
Have you got a display tank set up or just the grow out tanks?

A few indeed. Lol. This is a little less than half of my exodons. Most of them are in a covered pond out back. But I have this tank in my livingroom to enjoy.
Don't feell bad, its not just you. They're hard to find everywhere. Most people have never even heard of them. Lol. That's why, you need to have a cycled tank and a stack of money waiting. That way when you do find them someplace, you can buy them all. Lol.
It can get expensive at around $8/each. But its worth every penny.

You have bred them? Lol.
I would love to see pics of your breeding pairs and fry.

This is one of 2 "display tanks". It is not a grow out. Don't let the bare bottom fool you. I jusst prefer bare bottom tanks. It used to have a few large pieces of driftwood, but after revamping my filtration set up with the new overflow design, I removed them to maximize mechanical filtration of the wet/dry filter.
The other tank is planted. I will try to get pics up when I get home (posting from py phone @ work now).

It's going back a while but chucking a dozen fish in a fish house pond -8'x2'x2.5' with weir combs - usually meant netting out a hundred or so a few months later.

They are not difficult to get spawning but are avid egg and fry eaters - hornwort is good to give the fry a chance.

The tank would look much better with fewer fish so you could see them schooling.

So I assume that means you don't have any pictures?
Too bad. Would have been interesting to see. Wink

They "shoal" just fine in both ranks and their pond. But thanks for the suggestion. Lol.
