Here are some images from my latest photo shoot. These models, while glamorous, DO NOT take direction well. At all.

Although, this holding hara did smile when I asked.

Nice close up shots! That first one is kinda scary. Reminds me of the movie Alien.

What's the blocks of food for the fry consist of?

Nice pics, love the teeth!... I keep Hara as well - great fish. Mine are only about 3 inches now and have just started to spawn.

I'm going to have to make the long drive east one of these days so you can help me with my photography. I have the fish and the camera , but unfortunately not the talent. :oops:

Thanks. Another question :) How long do you leave the blocks in the tank for them to graze on?

I don't take them out actually. The food is gone usually within 5 or 6 hours if that.
I need to take some video after the food has been in the tank for an hour or two. You wouldn't believe the size of the bellies on these little guys.
