How old is good old Oz now ? Looks like he is giving you a bit of the cold shoulder. Probably because you took so long to do an update. He is usually right front and center. I am really starting to like those Chocolates ( ? ) .
Great looking tank and great update Eddie.

OZ's color is off the hook, I bet that vid doesn't do it justice!!! :woohoo:

Those Chocs are REALLY starting to come into their own, but they better stay away from The King!! (Unless of course they breed, then everybody in that tank will be on notice!!) :evil:

I forgot you had an Uaru in there, how's he making out??

And I may have to ship you my SD's, they are gonna be "odd-man out" if when I get the Beanii off of you & when I get a RT Mota off of Tom!! 6 "common" ones, but real healthy!!

Speaking of Beanii, where's the video of him?? :evil:

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.

No way does the video do OZ justice hell any of my fish for that matter!

and OZ is fine he was just eating back there and doing some gill flaring at the new black background I put up he is not sure if he like it or not lol ( b4 it was through and through)

he will be fine


I would love if my chocolates would breed they are plenty big enough but it seems no one in ym house feels like breeding idk whats up I just had a guy in the club that his bred and his were like 3 inches smaller than mine!!! and his were in a mixed tank he did not even want them to breed!!!


Oz has to be about a year and a half old he is about 2 inches thick at the head and much thicker in the middle! he is huge


the Urau is doing great eats with the big boys will chase around SD when he feels like it



and the chocolates really look amazing now I will get some good pics of them as soon as I get a good new camera


and the beani just got a WC and I plan on getting a vid of him soon he does not really like being on video tho lol he is making it hard I have tried a few times with him to no avail thus far

Nice update bro! Haha it has been a while huh?! All the fish are looking great man and them chocolates sure have come along. The SD school is impressive for sure! I was gonna ask if you had put a black background on but I see you said you did. How do you like it? I bet its a lot better than seeing through. Everything is more well defined in the tbank without all the background noise from the room surroundings. Nice work man!

Thanks Dave! I will also have a special place for Oz he is what really got me to this site and fish keeping! and yes some times he just has to be a jerk in his blood lol


J it has been far far to long idk what I was doing lol... Thank you they have grown so much in the past year its nuts looking at old videos of them kind of trips me out to be honest!

and the SD school has gotten huge.. see how they move in such a big school even coming right up to the side of the tank? they are not skittish when they have enough of their tanks mates good food and hiding areas great fish for sure!!

I love the black background it is way way better than the through and through ..big fan... I was painting all of my tanks the other day black and was like what the hell and bought some poster board and put it on the back of this tank and I have been happy with the results


Thanks guys

Looks great Eddie, the urau looks really good . That severum of yours is very nice and the silver Ds look very content not jittery and harassed as many people's do. Good job all around. The chocolates have come a long way.
