aww chubbs, i wish i knew you were doing this. Recently my LFS had gotten in like a 14" Flowerhorn, it's fins were incredible. There was about a 12" frontosa, and absolute beast. They also have this German Blue Ram in one of their display tanks with some discus and his breeding colors are displayed so well he almost looks like an electric blue ram. If these guys are all still there next time I go, I will be sure to snap some photos with my droid.

Please do man, I was tempted to nab that EBJD, he was gonna sell him for 50, but I'd get a huge discount if I asked my buddy for him... probably 25... It's just that he'd eat my oscar (in my sig) :P

So far with my EBJD they have all been pretty submissive. I put some corys and giant danios in there with them and I don't even think they notice I added fish.

What you should do Chubbs is get like a 29gal or a 20gal long and get some german blue rams....I'm not sure if you could do rams in that 15....I'm just sayin... ;) Great fish to look at. :)

I wish I could, but I have no more room to set up more tanks, as I live at home (am 22) for my student teaching... And the 90 is taking up most of the space in my room (it replaced my 37, which is sitting empty in the office)...

I've seen GBR, but they are a bit finicky with water conditions, and I've seen them just die at the drop of a hat, plus my LFS never gets them in :(

But yeah, if my oscar was bigger and if I didn't have the firemouth, I'd have already bought the blue jack

Yeah I've heard about the GBR finicky-ness. The batch my LFS got in is amazing though, pretty much all of them survived. For GBR they are VERY hardy. Mine have laid eggs twice so if they ever do become parents, I think I may set up a 10 gallon and raise the fry.

Felt bad for this guy big guy (12") small tank. I would have gotten him but my Red Devil doesn't like any other fish in his tank... Unless its lunch.

They're in a 90 gallon btw, and although it's hard to tell by the pictures, they're absolutely MASSIVE

There's something wrong with having an entire food chain at your home.
