and the name is tough to spell right.

friedrichsthalii is the spelling you should search the net with.

...also, a 'couple' can be dangerous if you mean 2 or 3. One fish usually gets beaten to death depending on your tank size. An ideal group is 6. Again, tank size makes all the difference in the world.

Good luck!

Ah, my moment to shine! I spent atleast twenty minutes studying this name so I could nail it one of these days :laugh: I believe its fernandezyepezi, I think there is a pleco under the same name, they are named after a pair of taxonomist (now thats a word that I don't think I have right :laugh: ) named Fernandez and Yepezi.

I kinda wish scientists would avoid patronyms and just use descriptive words for fish (like macrostomus... large mouth...). But, whatchagonna do....

I owned one. Like ace said, it's just like any large guapote. It'll need alot of space and won't likely tolerate tankmates once it's mature.

The loisellei I had was brutal at just 5 inches in length. They're almost frustrating, but definitely attractive fishes.

Yeah I know what you mean, but I cannot say I blame them. If I spend half of my life trying to find a little tetra, I'm sure as hell naming it after me.
