    Happy to hear everything is going well, I must admit the Metriaclimas are some of my favorites.

    glad to hear that your fish/tank is doing very well. if your bumblebee is male and when he gets older, he will also turn almost all black. the bumblebee i had wasn't the boss of the tank but he still turned black.
