    Just remember guys the fish was a TMC fish. It was at TMC for six weeks, disease free, caught with no chemicals and individually caught. It was also a large fish, about 11cm and had been with us for 3 months and eating ALL types of foods.

    Getting an Achilles is risky, only if it is placed under stress in your system and if your system has disease. I had my eye on that Achilles, but alas it was sold.

    II mean the specific fish is generally expensive and I would rather spend the money on something else than one fish...

    They are beautiful.
    Just a risk not knowing if it will survive in my tank
