Major BUMP!

Here's my little one (four, maybe five inches big):


Not exactly shy, and nowhere near as skittish as I thought it would be. Seems having a bigger fish calmly out and about really soothes smaller fish.


One of those rare pictures with a catfish in the picture.


I love the golden sheen Pythagoras's scales have. Especially when sunlight hits the tank, it's beautiful.


She's vain, like most cichlids, and spends quite a bit of time staring at herself.


You can see the little red spots that they line bred for with red severums. Pretty sure mine will stay golden, though.


Very curious about me as well. Like an oscar in some ways, I guess. Just thinner.


I hope she develops nice fin extensions.


One more of her lovely face :) Such big eyes. Grow, little one, grow!


None of my fish are camera shy, but they do decide they've had enough at some point. Here they have definitely lost interest in me and my activities. And with that, I end my showing off of my severum :)

Now, let's see some more of these lovely fish!
(I'm looking at you, Eddie :P)

Thanks Eddie. That severum of yours is completely to blame for this madness on my part.

It's too soon to say if it's working, as with all cichlids you need a year or more to know whether it's actually working. But so far no troubles at all.

Now, more pictures of that lovely fish :)

it's a pity Florence is causing you so much hassle, it's very pretty.

I like how its fins make an oval :)
