Yes, this is a photo of Henry that my partner took to put on this site :)
Henry is approx. 29 cm in length (head to back tail) and about 10 cm in height (height does not include his fins)
He is a very social fish but wants nothing more than to actually break through the glass and eat the noses of anyone that presses their nose on the glass of the tank. He is very playful and does respond to my partner the most...to the point where my partner went to NZ for 10 days so Henry chose not to eat, sat on the bottom of the tank after 2 days of him being gone....as soon as my partner walked through the door, opened the lid and tried to get him to eat...it was like there was nothing wrong with him...( I was so worried)
The Tank he is in is 4ft x 3ft (42cm depth)...
We generally do not feed him feeder fish, we put some in to see what he would do...we put them in 4 days ago and he doesn't bother with them...
Both fish that have been suggested here do have similarities...BUT IM STILL CONFUSED!! hahaha.
As for his age...we believe he is about 4 years old. He does have several colours in him...yellow, gren, blue, pink, black. His colour seems to change with his moods...for eg; when he seems to be sleeping he looks brown in colour all over......He baffles me. But he is also our first larger fish.
Is there any more information I can provide?? More pictures maybe??
I do have a video of him...I will try to put it up
Thank you for your help so far everyone.
