Is there going to be a Hera for Zeus?

The amazing thing is that this fish makes that tank look fairly small......

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.

Thanks a lot guys!

@ Caleb...that's Black Diamond Blasting Sand

@ Jack ... Funny you should ask that, a buddy just offered me his 12" wildcaught female if I was interested in spawning them. Unfortunately I'm just not set up for it atm...

Thanks Dave! I think your right a bigger tank maybe necessary in the future just hopefully not too soon!:lol:

Thanks Rock. He gets fed once a day and his staple pellet is Hikari Bio Gold. Once a week I give him a few Massivore pellets and a couple times a week he gets either a worm, bloodworm cubes, or brine shrimp cubes as a treat.

Thanks Tom...don't know if I'll ever breed him or not but we'll see what things look like in the future. Just too many people breeding them right now imo
