Haha you think splendens leap? I have to warn people new to wilds not to leave any gaps over the tops of their tanks . It's like they can teleport themselves through cling wrap and end up on the floor metres away from their tank.

Glad to hear that your male arrived safe and well. He certainly looks like hefty! Lucky he decided to escape into the tank rather than out of it.

He's wonderful CJ!! I can't wait to see more photos. Looks like he was just too eager to be in his new home :3

I just checked on him. His purple is a still a little pale which is too be expected but swimming around very happily until he noticed his reflection and went a bit crazy. He is not huge yet but a vey good size for only 14 weeks old. He does have some growing to do before he could be bred with Cookie. We may have to start out with a smaller girl first. There is a small mark by his eye that's in the aquabid photo but it looks ok and healing. Houdini will get his 14 day qt and a fish bath tomorrow. Poor guy does not know what a pellet is yet so he snacked on a couple bloodworms. Back soon I will see if I can get a decent cellphone pic and its feed time for the fry too just remembered lol.

That's good to hear he's doing ok, you must have your work cut out, what with raising fry and introducing and quarantining Houdini.
