The Costa Rican blues are getting big. Burt is over 20" and has quite a temper. He has a pretty good collection of nets and grabbers in his pond, just rips them out of your hand....do not reach in to get them. His girl friend is hiding so most likely more fry on the way.

Should get bluer. The large wilds we caught were awesome. He started to color up at about 12". Not as prolific as the golds, they spawn every three months or so but incredible numbers of fry.

Should be over two feet by next summer, that will be something to see. Already the largest fish I have kept by a fair margin.

I can feel his anger......it makes him strong, gives him focus...... :evil:

Yup, keep your fingers outta there or they will call you Stumpman!!! B)

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.

Go do a water change - the solution to pollution is dilution.

He is surely an active adversary. Hard to say who watches whom.
