Pissed that I cant see the new vid of darth. When I had him him we called him capone....damn he was a crazy bastard lol he really gets pissed towards the end of the first vid and godforbid you touched the tank. I would actually worry tjat he would hurt himself.


This was calm for him.


He is a good example of how mixing cichlids is hit or miss.
When he went into the 150 the only fish he accepted was dusty who was tiny.....great fish ben im sure he is thriving in your care

Nice to see these again! His eyes are so big compared to his body! I think his eyes have stayed the same size. The blackwater I keep him in chills him out a little bit I think; either that or he has just mellowed with age.

Would you say he is a year old now?

Darth Vader/Capone is looking good! His sibling Chunk is about 11" now and no where near as feisty. Chunk has been sharing his tank with three Australian rainbows and an L114 pleco and zero issues. Chunk has a bit shorter anal fin that does not overlap its tail and according to some this would mark it as female. Whatever the case your fish is a maniac compared to mine! :blink:

I couldnt say dave (suprd) is pretty good at estimating fish ages... I would.say he was about 3.5 inches when I got him. Hopefully he will chime in

I must have been away from the forum for a while. So Capone is now living with Ben?

What a great looking O, and check out that attitude!

Yup, I picked him up from Frank back in October and drove him back through the first snow storm of the year! My son didn't like the name Capone and so we renamed him Darth Vader. B)

No,,, as dory put on size he became intolerant. Kept her in hiding beat the crap out of the sd's. My son wanted more fish but knew that capone was too big to add juvies and too aggressive to add semi adults so asked if we could replace him...I kind of think it worked out. No way i would be able to have gotten the small v.heterospilus or pearsei nor be able to keep dory in the long run.

Sounds like you made the right choice, and he's in good hands. :)
