Maingano or no maingano?

Postby bangit » Fri Feb 12, 2016 5:32 pm

Hi all, just getting back into the hobby after a few years off and trying to find a decent forum for help and support!

I have a query regarding my recently purchased maingano's.

They have been in the tank about a week, all water params are fine etc. After having a closer look today i noticed that one of the five i've been sold (i intend to buy a few more females in the future - not quite sure on what i have at the mo in terms of mf ratio) is quite pale compared to the others, not sure if it actually is a maingano? The other 4 have coloured up nicely although pictures often don't do them justice!

They are all around 4cm i would say so pretty Juvenile.

What do you think? (pale fish in forefront of pics)

Thanks, Chris

Had to laugh reading the subject line. They do look like Maingano.
