I'll take whatever one you don't want Frank. B) AWESOME.

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

I'm sure you'll have a good chance of getting a great looking one with 3 to choose from. They are a stunning fish. I've been really busy for the last week with work as usual, 4 days off now woot woot, and I missed your changes. Did you setup another tank? I thought you took Capone out of the 150 due to aggression. These guys won't be less aggressive.

Go do a water change - the solution to pollution is dilution.

Yeah I bet. It's hard to have only one. I remembered after, him asking last week about how to cure the itch for more tanks. Guess he couldn't cure it lol. He picked up some more nice fish though.

Was able to take some pics and a vid. They DO NOT stay still so the pics arent too good they constantly nip and flare up at each other. I know rocksor mentioned that it is hard to sex them at such a young age. But if anyone can guestimate I'd appreciate it.
These two are the most aggressive and nip allot. Some split fins (not major) and maybe some missing scales I really cant tell.


This one seems to be the calmest.


Some random shots


The calm one has 3 dots and one faded one near the dorsal. As for the other two (aggressive ones) one has five dots and another higher up close to the dorsal the other has 4 dots and another close ro the dorsal that kind of melts into the dot closest to the gills. Sorry for the long explanation just want to give info so they can possibly be sexed
