Thanks for the update. I look forward to seeing them grow and hit max size. It appears they are on the medium to large end of the saxatilis complex with regard to full size. Would be cool to see a mature pair with long fun extensions on the male and a round pink belly on the female.
Thanks. Will keep my fingers crossed.

These guys are doing well. Just had to move the larger 2 svenis to my larger 125g due to aggression. Lost a couple of anthurus due to it. Didn’t see it till lights went out. But now doing well. The anthurus are mild mannered compared to the svenis. Really liking these sized medium pikes.

Some pics for an update. Really like these pikes. Very mild mannered the anthurus. The sveni is pretty mild but my other was a brute.

Nice update. If you start seeeing aggression as they near maturity, load up on hiding spots using PVC or stones. Keep us posted!

So far getting along. Nips and occasional chases but has almost stopped. The polys, m nigrippinis and now adult ctenepoma really make these pikes think twice. Really have slowed down the aggression. They are about 5-6in now.
