Can't believe I haven't noticed this thread before now. Just read the whole thing.

Amazing story that could have been a disaster right from the start. Great looking fish. Love the cute video with him eating from your hand. Looking forward to updates and more pics/videos as he grows.

Yeah you can definitely see a big size difference. Great looking little, soon to be big guy.

He looks great! I gotta stop looking at videos of Umbees, the urge to go get one is really pissing me off :laugh:

I love those umbee vids! I don't think I would get bored watching a video of that little guy if it were 15 minutes of the same thing. :laugh:

Actually, he's not such a little guy anymore I guess ... only when compared to how big he'll get.

Wow he's growing nicely. Looks like he doubles in size every time we see him.

Thanks everyone!

@DBLN8: Do it! :lol:

@UNC: Thanks! Length wise there's only ~1cm between him and my smallest RD now (RD is 6") but the RD looks like a much larger fish. I did a massive double take when I compared them. Ganbie's shaped like a little torpedo - all length, no mass.

@jmunroe: He hasn't quite doubled in size, but he's putting on around an inch per month. Over the last week or so he's had another phase of a lot of colour development which might do it. He's also growing in fin trailers now! Any doubts I had about whether he was a male or not have gone.

One thing I'm curious about is why he seems to have a longer/thinner body profile than most pictures of juvie Umbees I've seen. Hmm.
