Very nice Steven. That little comp fry looks like a snack to that frontosa.


so far maybe except the lelepi that occasion chase the comp fry, the frontosa pretty much leave the comp fry alone.... the Alpha frontosa is busy chasing other fronts instead. I had many comp fries that grow to adulthood in the tank already.

All the big frontosa in the tank now are all grown out from juvenile 1.5 inches fries, they were all the same size when I got them, note the differences in their growth rate now, and they has always been on a pellet diet so keeping them well fed could be the reason as well, that they dun snack on the comp fries.

Your Old-Yellow was really a solid looking piece, sorry to hear that he has passed on. :(


Thanks Steve. Hopefully one of the 9 offspring will be just as nice. I think they are predominantly all male so we will see.

He was awesome! Sorry for your loss :([/quote]

Thanks Russ. He came down with a case of severe bloat on one side of his belly and would just sit on the bottom but still spawned. Then the bloat developed on both sides of the body in which i placed in a hospital tank for treatment which was probably way to late. I've kept lots of Altos, but this was my first time have one with bloat. It looked like he swallowed a ping pong ball.

What a great thread, there's so many awesome fish. Would anyone be able to post some FTS to show off your aquascaping?

This gold head is usually a lot brighter, as seen in the picture of my previous post. Guess it hasn't got use to me being around. Darkens up whenever I'm in front of the tank.
