Couldn't take having them in the jars, so i put them back. they weren't eating properly in the jars anyway.

8 Weeks old!

good thing they don't have teeth, otherwise they would all be ripped up on their faces from trying to eat the same sinking pellet.

Anyone got a tip on where i can find heat packs?

During the time when they were jarred i was able to get a closer count on males:
6 red
5 black & blue
3 in between... see photo


This is one of the in between color males... it seems a mix of all the available colors into more of a blend than a this-or that that the rest of them are.


Females:




Runts for comparison:


Still need more pics of the girls, but i'm going to hang on to most of the non-Cambodian ones anyway.

Sorry idk why the pics came out so big...

You know you're making it very hard to wait for me new boy to arrive.

And really making me regret not getting two!! I gotta keep telling myself I don't have room!!!

No, I don't breed, but these big boys sure look handsome to me.

9 weeks! all my shipping supplies are in so they're up for sale.

I picked out some females for myself and am adding them to my 20 gallon as i type this. Their Aunt currently lives in there, and it's scary how much bigger she is, but she is very gentle. She does flare at them but as long as she doesn't get nippy, she can stay.

Also getting the forever home ready for the one red male i'm keeping.

Red males are going fast, most of them are already spoken for, not counting the 2 red male runts.

trying to get a flared pic, and a measuring pic, but they just won't cooperate tonight. As suspected, they are somewhere between PK and HMPK when flared.


Sparky, this one is yours if you like.


The girls in the 20 gallon are all together desperately trying to figure out how to eat a snail... been a while since they saw one.

PERCIVAL!!! (That's the fish's name, for those not in the know! Which is like everyone.) I love him! Yep, his home is waiting. OK, so I've been ready for WEEKS! I just hope he's not too miffed to be moving to the Buckeye state!

ok, will start fasting him tomorrow, and send you a bill.

Apparently there's lots of stuff in my planted 20 gallon that the girls like to eat... they are spending their time picking at stuff all over.

Also the girls had an interesting color change once they got in there. One girl was almost a yellow, with clear fins, and now she has red fins... A cambodian i put has taken more of an orange-red color.
