That lapse video was great. I thought Umbee was gonna get up in the siphon for a second there. He's very cool and obviously loving his home.

He is cool :D But no, he's too big to get stuck in the siphon (now).

What kind of fish is umbee? Kind of too far back to much but his shape and color. I assume a species that will get quite big based on the tank you have him in.

Great looking pair Bri I particularly like the red. The pictures I take with my HTC One aren't that great get better ones with my iPad. Maybe a little more practice, btw set-up looks good.

Oh, he is an Umbee cichlid. His name's Ganon but it's been butchered into Ganbie and other cute monikers.

Thanks Ernie. I'm gonna get another video up this evening. Try and get a little more closeups of them. It's a shame they never give me the split second needed to focus. My note 4 has a 16 mp camera. The shots of non moving objects I take are mind boggling

Very nice description lamm. Very cool fish and wow 2 feet. That's up there with the Dovii on size pretty much. It will be great watching him get huge. He's clearly in the right place to do so.

Some people on here just take amazing photographs. No idea how they do it. I think a camera with a fast shutter speed helps with taking photos of fish but I'm really not sure at all about anything photography related.

Re: Umbees - yep, pretty much. His current tank will probably only be enough for him for the next year (less if he doesn't start slowing down the growth :pinch:).

Some cameras, including my phone take burst shots like 5 pics in 2 seconds but even that is hit or miss plus my guys are constantly in motion so I'd just get 5 blurry pics to erase instead of one lol. I'm better off just being patient and taking what they give me. The 2 of Vicky on this post are almost totally focused. Whenever I nail one fully focused you guys will be able to count individual scales. It's pretty amazing.

This one of Ron is almost fully focused but they really do get even clearer than that
