Oh i just noticed your coloring question, lol. He does have the wild coloring. I dont think he's a wild though (could be wrong). That colorless brownish green is considered a wild color. My boy Smitty has that on his head
really?.. so I've been emasculating the poor thing this entire time? :/
he flashes forward most of the time, and doesn't flash at all unless he sees his own reflection or a mirror. I do always have bubbles everywhere around the surface, but i figured it was the filter's doing.
lvandert, i see u have a similar fish on the profile pic, he's beautiful
Enkil, Thank you! he's really massive too, little monster lol
..oh dear, so weird to say "he". any chance at all it's a she? lol
Definitely a male. Male Plakat to be exact. A female, would have a less defined or no beard, along with a rounder belly now and then (or always, depending on the female) Along with having shorter ventrals (the ones on the bottom in front)while the males tend to have a "stocky" build, that is more streamlined than a female.
he's really handsome; i love the yellow - makes his face, and (oh, if i may) his eyes pop
nuh, mine is a little monster. he hides in plants and rocks all the time, but as soon as he detects movement by the tank he comes out to see if there is any food coming his way. makes my tank look empty, kinda annoying lol
I love the little circles of yellow Uther has around his eyes. ^_^ It's so cute.
Uther likes to hide in the Japanese gazebo decoration in his side of the 10 gal. Because he's black, I can't see him when he gets down in there. o_o So I start to panic, thinking that he possibly jumped on me (he's new to me and so I don't know if he ever has jumped or not). He now greets me when I go over to the tank. He has only flared once for me though. It was very impressive. His beard is marbled in yellow and black too. XD
