Hey Kids,

No real big updates.
All are well.

I do want to get the 2 males ch out. They were really giving each other a hard time a few weeks ago, the longer days have them wishing 1 was a female but...

I thought I could get one and tried but ended up getting the largest clarion, which I moved out. He is just huge.

This summer I want the 2 ch out and maybe the next largest clarion...possibly the ultra coral beauty pair too. Would like to move some of the qt fish into the dt.

I think I have a tiger pair coming within the week.

Will post some pics and videos next weekend, I hope. Crazy busy but can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

The gp are great and one is just huge, close to 4 inches.

I hope you and your fish are all well.

TK

Hope the tiger pair makes it for you alright. How big are the other two Gp's compared to the big one.

I agree. Just as cool.
I'd love to try them if they spawn. Could try sending eggs my way.
I'll be checking back for photos!

Are those naturally collected hybrids or captive bred. I've got an eibli and am getting ready to add a lemon peel in the next two weeks. Curious to see if they interact

That spot does look like the beginnings of some kind of infection. The scary part is the location, makes it possibly the result of an oops with needle decompression. Hopefully it is something simple, as that is a nice fish.

Bill,

I was thinking the same thing. They made the trip okay and are picking and eating.. I am picking-up on Sunday.

Thanks,

Ted

Nice pick up on the new hybrid. I hope the pairing goes well. I did see that golden passer in person a couple weeks back and it was indeed an amazing fish. I'm not sure if I liked it more than a clarion though.

Thanks...those passers are nice but stupid expensive...a clarion wins every day, imho, especially a baby clarion...
