Must be a less known river as the only red river I'm familiar with is out west that flows into the Mississippi R.

I don't have a clue lol. I know nothing of the river beyond that it cuts through the very northernmost part of Vietnam then is in southern China for the rest of it's length. Once we see pics and get an idea of what it is, we can go from there. I doubt they're HLG, but if I were forced to guess at gunpoint, I'd say that they were likely tropical or subtropical in their needs.

Haha I wasn't implying they were HLG's. I was just using them as an example of whether they liked cooler temps like them. All the Google searchin I did for the red river basin only gave me areas here in the US so southern china and north Vietnam was better info than anything I've found so far haha. Can't wait to see what these guys look like. I wonder who's gonna get the 2nd one. I wish I could but that's a pretty big chunk of change

Is the first 1 the red river basin? They all look extremely similar to me from the pics except it looks like the first pic has a distinct stripe going across the head
