Awesome! From the sounds of your guys' sevs, they are awesome creatures with good personalities. I love fish with objectives other than running to the top for food. That all my O's ever care about, and I'd rather watch them explore the tank also and do their natural things.

I'm hoping the sevs stay under 8" for me, as the pearsei is going to already be doing work on my tank size wise.

Well my buddy is coming over tonight so we can finalize the list and fish are being ordered tonight, hopefully will get here Tuesday or Wednesday! Cannot flipping wait!

Got the camera ready to go Eddie....I'll have HD pictures and perhaps a video! Been awhile since I aquarium vlog'd anyways.

Quick question on sevs, are they competitive eaters? I need to get smaller food before the fish come in and wondering if they will be ok with floating food or if I should get sinking for them, that way they get enough.

depends on the dynamics of tank when he was bigger than the chocolates in the 55 grow out tank he always ate first and made a point of letting them know it..


Now that he is in the 265 with Oz and the chocolates grew up he has to wait his turn to eat.. but if I feed them all sinking pellets he always gets in their and eats!

Yes order has been fianalized and payed. Delivery for Thursday, as I've got class all week.

2 pearsei, 2 rokteil, 2 super red sevs, and 1 synspilum for myself. My buddy's getting 2 synspilum and a heterospilus, and eventually probably 1 of each of my sevs as they get older.

This week is going to fly by, can't believe I'm getting all these amazing fish.

Cebo you've got a few synspilum don't you? How do you like them? How's the pearsei also? I'd Epsom bathe if its still bad. It helps with the heavy breathing and cuts the bloat down.
