Have you pulled on them at all to see how much pressure they can take? I’ll have to check it out. Have a product link?

ya it’s the weight of two lids at least - the tank with the bigger fish i have 2 straps on each lexan lid

or you could use more straps and lids would not open at all - did not want to obscure viewing -

Not the best photo, but a good photo to show the difference between my more colored up fogo compared to the more dull one.

i got this too - my smaller one (male?) is red/orange - bigger one - not so much....

wish i had space / $800 to order two of PF to compare vs the ones Wes sold -

wondering if they are coming from same place?

I don't know if it is a coincidence as my smaller one is the most colored up as well. It was like that the day they came in and its always been more intensely colored than the other two.

Mine are from Wes as well (I got 3 of the smaller ones). But I do have a friend that bought one of the the larger ones PF had.

They’re looking good and so are the tank mates in the background. I’m pretty confident they’re all coming from the same place. Still interesting to see how they all turn out from both vendors. There seems to be a lot of variables in adult fogo patterns and colors.
