I think they are coming along great! We are very proud of them!

(Ignore the watermark at the top of the pics, that was accidental and I'm too lazy to re-resize them!)

Fantastic pictures Josh - those are some really striking looking fish. Glad to see they're doing well :)

Thanks everyone! They are getting pretty big - except two seem to be stuck and haven't grown since we got them!

Pretty fine fish y'got there! Quality photos too. Have to say i'm impressed!

very nice. how big are they? they look about the size of mine right now (3 inches or so). 1 of mine (whom i call shunned, since they shun him) hasn't grown much either. What do you feed them? Mine are eating Hikari cichlid excel (lots of spruilina) and a higher protein tetra pellet 4-5 times a day. I was going to try beef heart but decided against it. Also do you have any other fish in with yours, besides a cleaner crew I mean? I don't, just them and a whole bunch of cories, a couple of ottos and a striped raphael catfish. If you ever found a striped raphael I would highly suggest it because discus like high water quality, which of course you know, and that fish eats everything that is left over from the discus so nothing is left to spoil the water quality. Plus they're cool too.

Hello, the Red Turqs are about 4-5", the Snakeskin is about 3.5-4", one of the Tangerine's is about 3" and then I have a smaller Tangerine and a Red Turq which are about 2.5". Something like that. The only other fish in the tank atm is a small Clown Pleco. I will be adding a couple dozen Amano Shrimp when I get back from vacation, however. I will keep an eye out or even special order a striped raphael - thanks for the advice.
