    Not one of the common featherfins, but occaisionally seen for sale. They came to me as wild caught and have yet to supply me with any fry. The dominent male has been building lare pits and enticing the gals into them, but I guess they aren't quite ready yet.
    Here's a few shots

    Is that a shark in the back? Wouldn't it eat the eggs? (I know how defensive they are of there nests, but still.)

    Yep, that was a redtailed black shark that was in there for about 30 hours. I hate babysitting fish....

    It was more than a bad idea, it was a disaster. I lost a fish to it's wonderful personality.
    Who say's ya can't teach an old dog new tricks !!
    Next time I look after someones pride and joy it's staying in a 5g bucket.
