also wild acros are a pain to keep alive.. you really have to keep the alk low.. natural seawater is pretty low... not only that when receiving the the acro take alk from the bag... then slowly adjust... note you can only bump 1dkh per day... most people that receive wild acros have to have a separate tank to receive wild acros.. they adjust em to captivity then they mite be good.. which is why captive breed acros are expensive.. it takes time and patience to mature them to captivity and they mite also change colors on you... what you thought was a nice acro can turn into the ugliest thing you ever seen in captivity.. just a note but hope your acro made it.. if not then take note all that i've said... I've went thru tons of wild acros... really the only people i've seen that have been able to correct wild to captive locally is fish2tomorrow.. but they charge for it... it's not a simple thing to adjust em.. it's a pain in the butt... bright colors will most likely dull... if your a acro noob i wouldnt suggest doing wild acros..
