    robski: I agree, BUT not sure if they are even available here! I know jumping beans (African Pygmy Angels) are readily available

    I wouldn't go with either. Flame or Lemonpeel, or even a good looking Golden

    Warr: These are a good 1" smaller than the flame/lemonpeel. So far better suited to a nano? I'd hate to put a fish in that wants much more space

    Dude the way you go though fish, I wouldn't worry, soon as the flame is fully grown there is a 500L tank waiting for him ;)
