Boris i've had since 15/10/12 and he was 5cm now he is about 17cm

Sir P i've had for just over 3 years and is about 35cm.

I will update as time goes on, and i will get the Rainbows out before he gets much larger, he's already looking at them as dinner. lol yum yum.
Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes & dreams.

    Thanks, it's local river sand, it contains a bit of iron stone which good for plants.

    Just a quick update, 7 months old and about 25cm tl pretty sure It's a male, as the lateral line blotches are starting to break up. Also getting a nice mauve tinge which you can sort of see in the pics.

    How's Sir P, they sill getting on ? or is the Jag by himself.
  • Heintz.GHeintz.G Moderator Posts: 1,363
    I had to separate them, to much fighting and poor old P came out worse for wear, check the first pic I had to put some plastic garden trellis in there but old P is looking good again. Now I'll have to get another tank probably a 4'x18"x18" that'll keep P happy, oh and another large filter. :P More money for electricity got to keep the energy company in business I guess. :((

    Ok, Boris has now left the building, ^#(^ no he's not dead, it's the old story of a friend of a friend, who has a female Jag and fell in love with Boris. So being the old sap that I am, :-?? he's now in in the breeding program....... B-)

    Looks like a new project on the horizon, this time I will go back to bio type setup I've been looking to starting another Fire mouth Cichlid setup, I'll start putting up some pics up soon.

    What breed is sir p. We had ones like that that got to about 15cm then all our fish died because of some random disease
  • RainbowsRainbows Member Posts: 243
    He's a sailfin pleco Josh.
  • Heintz.GHeintz.G Moderator Posts: 1,363
    Sorry for the Late reply, yes as Rainbows said he's a Sailfin Pleco. I don't have him any longer he was almost 40cm long and now living in a swimming pool with GPG's, Oscars and about 9 other Plecos.
