Nice Jimmymac,

I am not really familar with these.
A foot long, that is big.


The Kodak Easy Share is not a bad camera.
We used one for a long time.

"I have a group of 7 in a 75 gal. grow out."

Just thought that was funny, I've never heard anyone using
a 75 gallon tank as a grow out tank before.

I would love to see these fish when they get to full size!

Thanks for sharing!

Many have to use big tanks for grow outs when they're keeping big fish!

Update photos. Male is 5 inches.
I now have a trio in a 75 gal.
I liquidated 3 fish to Mitch.
(I'll let him tell you about that)
The male is beautiful!
1 female is holding.







Here is the other female
