I tried.. He isn't a fan of the new toy lol. Yep I think those 3 yoyo loach snacks helped the fast growth spurt haha. Also haven't seen the Chinese algae eater for a few days. May expect another growth spurt ... But he is rather fond of the little clown pleco. At least Baybay is making friends and not eating everyone

I'm afraid it's too late. Looks more like 7inches now and has a mysterious fat spot in his belly. Poor lil algae eater . I replaced it with another golden algae eater but this time made sure it was larger(a healthy 3inches and not too skinny). I'm gonna have to say though..I think these golden algae eaters must be pretty tasty because I witnessed yesterday a murder attempt. Baybay came out in the middle of the day and was slinking his way around the aquarium and hid right under the area the new golden algae eater was and waited for 15mn for the right moment and snapped at him. Algae eater was too fast and Baybay gave up after another 5mn and went back home. Honesty I was surprised the algae eater made it through the night and Baybay still has his eyes on it. Why the 3 inch hyper algae eater and not the clown pleco who is maybe only about 1.5" ? Why would he be friends with that smaller easier to eat fish and badly want to eat the other? I don't understand. But I still love my lil murderer

Could never get my underwater vid of baybay to load anywhere but I got a cute one of Baybày meeting Zanj my girl frilled dragon. Baybay is looking about 9ish inches and very active! Yes he ate more fish but his fav crew are all still there ! Especially his buddy the tiny clown Plec.

heehee, super cute vid! Baybay is getting huge, and is so pretty! I really have to wonder what those two were thinking - looked like a bit of a stare-down between them, lol. That's not something *I* get to see every day!
neat! ^__^

Bichir baybay!

A little photo update on Baybay . Here he is today.. Still doing fantastic and still buddy buddy with the clown pleco that's no bigger then his head. Even on MANY occasions going nuts in the back of the tank trying to stick his face on the glass like the plec sitting right next to the pleco.. Always a funny sight to see haha.. Yep he's weird!






They angels were a little testy the past week.. One pair lost their fry recently so they've been annoyed at the other angels

Well that is certainly something different, definitely not run of the mill. Is he still trying to 'munch' everything ... Except his buddies of course ? Odd that he has 'paired up' with the plec as he is bite size

*WOOTS FOR UPDATES!*
Baybay is such a goof! >.<
I'm continuously amazed to compare his behavior to that of the wild-caught Bichir I've seen grow up on this forum - he definitely seems to have a much sweeter side to him. . . in spite of those pesky growth spurts! >.< I'm sure being hand-reared from birth in a tank has much to do with it, but I have to wonder how much is just his personality, too? Keep posting, Agent! You know how I adore this little guy! <3
