    Thanks, I'm quite excited. As far as I know this is the first time the true Winklefleck has been available in the US.

    Fish arrived just before I had to leave for work, unfortunately both look like males, so we'll see what is done to fix this "pair" that I purchased.

    Beautiful Fish. Apisto Dave has some for sale on aquabid, he would for sure get you a male and female if you cant it worked out with the person you purchased from. I purchased my apistos from him and they are amazing. Here is a link to the auction if you are interested.

    That's who I got them from :/ I'll know for sure when I get home from work, by then they should have settled in nicely.

    What size tank are they in (just curious)? Thats suprising though if it turns out that is the case I'm sure that he would send you another female, although he would probably make you pay for shipping :/.

    Basha right now they are in a well planted 10 gallon for now until I can get a 20 long set up for them.
    So I guess I do have a pair the female has finaly started to look like a female, I will post pics later.

    So these guys are proving to be very stubborn. not matter how large a variety of live foods I throw at them along with largs WCs and temp adjustments they still refuse to spawn. I guess it's time to start tinkering with the water chem a bit.......​
