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

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.
