Been in a few days now. Tank is dark from the tannins of the driftwood, but parameters are all solid.

Hard to capture a solid photo as they move constantly. They seem to have hit a growth spurt since being in the bigger tank. Only about a week and a half now but they seem to have added on about .5"
Also it looks like the they might be sexually dimorphic as you can clearly see head shape and body differences between a few of them. I am thinking males are larger as there seems to be 2 so far and they fight over leadership and small territory. Just speculation as I haven't researched much on these.

No changes. Tank is clearing up from tannins. Other than that they just swim non stop. Can't wait until they at least hit 12"

They are a target fish when we go fishing here, quite tasty once fried up with some lemon, salt and chilli flakes.
Just in case you get bored with them...........

Seriously though, I've never seen them kept in an aquarium. I will keep an eye on this thread as it's a very interesting set up and looks good too.

If they get too big the grill isn't too far away :ROFL:
Will try and keep up on updates as one of my petpeves are threads that die.
