Here's two more photos where I used a technique of getting the fish to turn left or right. As I have stated previously, when fish are breeding they are relatively easy to get to react.

Here's the male Honduran Managuense:



And here's the male Synspilum. Same drill. You can see three fry in the photo. When the fish have fry, they are particularly easy to manipulate. This guy is no exception. I like the shot because of the way he displayed his fins....and color.

Great pics as always. I have never been a fan of managuense since most of them I see are always very drab in color and they probably have been removed from the wild by 50 generations but this wild male is just spectecular and I would buy it in a heartbeat. Also since you really pay attention to your fish do you notice any behaviour difference between the wild fish and other managuense that you have kept over the years.

I changed from Africans to American's largely because of Mo's pics and his website as well. But for me it was really more the personality of Centrals that won me over then anything else. But you sure can't beat the full color spectrum on the Synspilum.

Thanks. Very kind of you to say. And you did the right thing switching. :thumb: :D
