That is too bad. They Are notoriously hard to keep. You did nicely to get that size.

It was in my 8 ft with the Adult kigoma. I grew it on from around 2 inches.
It started to get too bulshy/pushy and overpowering for the Fronts (As I knew would happen eventually)

So I was keeping it in a 200 gal holding tub with an fx5 on it.. the lid was secured yet this fish had so much power he managed to smash the lid clean off the tub...
Normally I would have heard this but since it was a Saturday night i was off my face haha!

That sucks.

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.
