Anywho, here's my boy. If I'm wrong and it's a girl, it's got a heck of a dorsal fin. lol He's hard to get good photos of.

Definitely a male.

I couldn't keep a pair in a 45. I wouldn't try to do a pair in less than a 4 foot tank.

The tank is a planted 55 gallon. =( This is my third try at a pair...possibly the fourth. Usually it's the female who hates the male, and at one point I had two females with a younger male and he was kinda a dip... LOL I can't seem to win, but they're so pretty and were getting along, so I figured, hey, third time is the charm! Guess not.
Maybe they shouldn't interbreed on the colors even though they're the same species? But he looks like he's got some gold in him, I wanted some more similar to him with brighter markings, but eh!

Now that she's moved and fixed up, do you think I may be able to try again in the future? Put him in -her- space?

With aggressive species sometimes I think it's just a matter of getting the right specimens.
