I've had the phone call.
I will be picking up some rummy-nose tetra, it will have to be the Hemigrammus bleheri as opposed to my preferred Petitella georgiae, but that'll do. ;]

Hi @Stephen I have enjoyed catching up with your thread, must be great to watch the Cichlids develop, sounds like it's been hard work sourcing all the required fish, are you fully stocked now?
340l 4ft Aqua Oak tank - Hemiodus Gracilis, African banded barb, torpedo loach, synodontis petricola, Queen Arabesque L260, Candy striped L015.
SuperFish 2ft 60l - beacon tetra, dwarf gourami.

Thank you
When I add 50 rummy-nose tetra I won't be far of being fully stocked.
I just need another Corydoras species that exists in the Rio Negro and I'll be fully stocked; I don't want to be over-stocked despite having plenty of filtration.

Arrived home with 50 x rummy-nose tetra (Hemigrammus bleheri).
I also looked at 2 different LFS for suitable Corydoras but alas none to be found on this occasion.

However I did see some very handsome and large Corydoras duplicareus which were virtually fully grown but fairly expensive at £20.00 each, they were gorgeous.
I already have 15 x Corydoras duplicareus so I'm looking forward for them to grow as I've now seen them at their adult best.
