Here's a couple more pics. It was almost impossible to get the red devil and jack demsey together so I just took a group shot of the tank and a separate shot of the RD.

My bud had a pair male 12" and female 9" back in '08. He sold those guys but they were amazing.

Nice size Fishguy......How old is he?

Don't knw, just rescued it, think it's a girl.

Nice JD, I think it's a male because of how it looks under the eyes.

It does have girl features around the gills but male too under the eye.... but can females really hit 9"?

I'll go with male too

Yes! females can definately hit 9". Can't remember his name on here but he lived in Hawaii and he had a HUGE gorgeous female... Looked much like that one there... Incidently it's temperment in the big tank is that of a females... The males (3) in the big tank are D-bags lol

lol really, 9" females are pretty rare though right?

Whats the story with yours, where did you rescue it from?

Sun Oct 03, 2010 9:03 pm

I don't think it's that rare at all. I think most people give up on their fish before they see their full potential. Or they kill them.

I got the fish along with a handfull of others from a fellow O.C.A. member.
