I ordered a pair as part of a 10 discus order. Both arrived healthy, and had fins erect and looking around within a couple of hours of acclimating to their new tank. After 24 hours the larger of the two is eating like little pig. The other is still very shy, hiding in the planted aquarium but apparently picking off rotifers and other organisms off the leaves of the plants rather than joining the others in their "feeding frenzies". Their sizes were correct, both in the 2.25-2.5 inch range, and the largest of the two can only be described as a jewel...already showing brilliant colors, with turquoise to dark blues to black in the dorsal, caudal and anal fins, a yellow face and body under the reddish orange checker-boarding, with a light, blue showing up under the checker-boarding on the front third of the body and a pale yellow without checker-boarding on the back third in front of the tail. The smaller is just as promising but its body coloration is still washed out and pale from its travels and new tank. Hopefully it will perk up and shoal with the others in a day or so. Can't wait for them to grow out to their full adult colors!
