Nice, very nice.
Wish i had him in with my female. She's just over 8" and full of aggression, but oddly enough not towards me.

My guy acts like he is mad @ the world :eek: :D Actually when I clean the tank he rams me with his hump more then bites me. The only time he ever got me good (drew blood) is when I pulled my hand away and he atrtacked it. Now I just leave it in there and stand my ground and he will proceed to ram it but not bite. Cool fish for sure..

WTF.... I came home from work today and found my FH dead on the bottom of the tank? ****, he was a nice fish too... :-? He was healthy and happy when I last saw him, feed him a frozen Blood worm cube and went to work.

Hmmmmm, just bad luck?

Its always hard to give up a fish like that. Nothing you can do.
If it matters, he was a stunner. Very nice Midas look on this one with the short body and the hump.

Hopefully you figure out what went wrong and gl hunting after a new one...
