Actually, I would like to use habitat faithfully Astynax tetras, unfortunately, the nowhere to get here. So I decided for the Buenos Aires Tetra (from South America), which see the Astynax's outward appearance very similar and are on the water values robust.
If should form a couple at the Meekis times, I hope that the cheeky tetras will eat the young fish to stress in the aquarium to prevent possible.

A great fish, especially if they threaten the gill :) Let's see how the color of animals will not change, currently there are still some gray mice, the animals but also only as 6- 10cm. Among themselves there is already rather rough, it is threatened and sometimes gestuptst.
Depending on the changes in the group dynamics, I would reduce the animals, currently it works but quite good.

The primary reason for a Central America aquarium was only once that I wanted to run no Wasserpanscherei by osmosis system more and our CH tap water is quite hard.
After I have dealt intensively with the Central American cichlids, I realized that there is really great fish in this division!
) I am pleased now to follow the development of animals and try to offer them a homelike as possible Habitat :); Initially Meekis came for me not in question as it is the geek suddenly becomes favorites
