He's looking very confident in his new home, already knows he's the boss lol. But good also to see you Datnoid looking so stable and not shy/hiding -- makes me think I should add some more fish to my (stable colored but mostly shy except during feeding) Dat's 375 (currently just him and Flagtail buddy).

It's been a long time since I had an aro but as I recall they grow pretty fast. Not sure if the black skirts are gonna be safe. But like I say, I was a kid when I had an aro. Grew from 2" to about 9" then jumped out of the tank.

The black skirts are probably the most aggressive fish in there.


Pellet training him was kind of easy. Hes eating omega one cichlid pellets, frozen blood worms, FD krill, tilapia and brine shrimp meant for the dat. Next up is getting him to accept sticks and NLS.

My son named him Zeus btw. The black skirts will end up back at the store

His a push over bro, dats gangup on him when he tries to bully them. For the poly he dont ever bother it, i had 3 cb endli with him and now just a 5” congi but never seen it get bothered, actually the dats will bother the congi more than the jar.

Good to hear. When do you think you'll be able to put him in the big tank ?
