I picked these guys up tonight, while at the shop they looked pretty much teh same colour with the exception of the pattern.
After getting them home I notices that they have distinct colour difference which leads me to beleive they are different genus (is that the right term?)

Anyone able to confirm?

The first photo. I think G. histrio is the same as G. rivulatus, but not sure on differences between G. histrio and G. atrangulatus

The bottom photo could be G. erythrospilus

But only guessing on those.

I think the first is a G. histrio

Second could be G. erythrospilus
My reference is old and lists it as a variation of histrio.

Sorry, missed this. Yeah, I had one. It never took any frozen or live food, including live Mysid shrimp. Im hoping my latest purchases will however. Is it eating Paul?

Nope no updates, apart from I'm surprised it hasn't dies as it doesn't eat with very much 'gusto'.

And no pairing information as I am yet to find another one.
