Microctenopoma ansorgii

Just received these little jewels from in Montreal. Rarely available, these little guys are super colourful and on many a hobbyist’s “wanted” lists. The fish in the pix below range in size from 1″ to 1.25″ and came from Malebo Pool in the lower Congo River.

Male ansorgii are much more colourful than females.

This one I think is avery colourful female.

This one's a female for sure. Finnage and colours not quite as flamboyant as the males.

Amazing little fishies!

They've only been in the tank one night, but are settling in nicely!
