yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!.............. that alpha male is super cool!!!! :drooling:

will my alpha male burundi look like this eventually??... really hope so

i have to say i agree with you about the blue backround big-t.... but so far along the tank looks great!, i love that the water level almos reaches the top of the tank, so it gives the sense of a water cube..jeje :thumb:

Yeah he's black alright, Im going to post some close ups of him tomorrow .I heard that the burundi get dark with old age but dont know if it's true , My holding female is really dark also and i think shes about 7 or 8 years old and about 8 inches.The one cool thing about my 11 inch male is he is always active never stops doing laps in the tank and never spooks always swimms up to the glass and stares you right in the eye if you move to the right he follows move up he follows and just looks you right in the eye.pretty cool.
