nice Jack, maybe you dont notice so much seeing him every day, but he is coloring up real nice. Pattern around the gill plate very cool. You changed anything to possibly avoid any of his previous episodes?

Here's my take......I think he may have had some intestinal bug when I got him....it kept coming back, I think 3X if I remember correctly....then I fed him the Epsom soaked food, & it killed what ever he had, as it hasn't come back since....also, I have stepped up the WC regimen from 2X weekly to 7X, & use only cold water when filling....that's the only change I can think of.

EDIT:

4X, not 7X....duh. :blush:

Yep, I attribute the Ep salt to really bringing my female O back around. Her voracious appetite returned, and she laid a thousand eggs, layed eggs 2 days ago, and ate big today.

Very cool. He doesn't seem to be growing too fast. I thought I read somewhere they were fast growers.
Some day I'll own one.

He was tiny when I got him...everything I've read or been told is that they are most definitely not a fast growing species, around maybe 0.5" per month, being a more temperate species, & they (IME) are hot & cold as far as being eaters, I know mine is. Some days he's a chow-hound, other times fussy.

If I can ever find a female, I would like to try my hand @ breeding this fish. Will be TOUGH, they hate all life, even non-cichlid species...but if that happens, I will definitely be selling the fry, they are rare in my neck of the woods. I'll keep you in mind. B)

Wow he's looking a lot better. Starting to colour up nice too. Glad to hear he's doing a lot better, hopefully it stays that way. If your doing vids on the iPad turn it sideways when your recording and it will take a full screen vid instead of the narrow one.

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