So my G/F felt like taking some pictures yesterday and she ended up with a few not bad ones so I figured I would put some up on here but a few really show the chocolates well

here is them as babies






and them now






you can see he is getting over a scrape he got in the tank at night right at the top fin

This is actually pics of only my male but the female also shows these colors ... I still have to get them in the best neon green color they do during feeding time and then they have a all black but these are the two light striped and dark striped they do some times ... these fish have 4 different color patterns they use all the time its crazy ... and they are getting beefy huh ;)


One she took of my Jag who ran form her forever lol ik I just did the video but we like pics right lol?! :laugh:


Here is one of Oz Just cuz B) you can even see the sev in the background




she took all of these so hope you like em and figured I would at least show you the chocolates since I haven't in a while Thanks !!

IK i really want to try again maybe tonight I will take some more pictures and see what happens !

and thanks a lot !! glad you like em

the chocolates are like chameleons they change more than any fish I own !

and the blue is deffo coming in I took the pink convict out and the male started showing off for the female yesterday I'm super surprised shaking and flaring his gills but not at her like in front of her?! that has to be a good sign right probably why he is coloring up some I stil; think they are a little to young but we will see what happens

Chocs are awesome fish, & yours are REALLY showing some nice colors.....Oz is one hell of a Red Oscar, bud. That Jag is sweet too!! Wait until he's 16"+!!!!

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.

All great pics Eddie ! :) But you know who my favorite is. :P
I think you got very lucky to have a gf that takes such interest in your fish hobby. You can tell from the little things you tell us how much she cares about those fish ! Nice update Eddie. They all look great.
