Does anyone here keep these fish? Also, if I was interested in aquiring a juvie of this species, where would I find one? Would I need to import? I really like FH, but I think these fish are just as beautiful (maybe more so, IMO) and are a natural species. Thanks for any info you can give, Betty :)

I would stay as far away from them as possible :D....I had 3 and could not house them together, VERY agressive towards their own spieces . 2 in a 135 gallon will not work even in a 210. Females lay eegs all the time and Kill stupid fish that wont stay away.
The best luck I had with my first female ( ater she wiped out tank twice of fish twice her size ) was to put here in a cominity tank with neons hatchet fish , zebra Danials and the like ( never ate a small fish as they were no threat.And had enough brains to stay away from the Monster and her eggs.
