Good to see dave, those jau sure are Chunky. Mines the same. I’ve found joe in larger tank with mixed larger doradies. He leaves them alone. No bite makes it split fins yet. He’s only 10” though and the Bacu & megs are all 12-16”

How’s the fila getting along?

When my male jau was 2.5' and I was testing it in the other 4500 gal with many other fish, it broke a pectoral spine of a 3' Oxydoras niger near the base. Off it has gone into its usual 4500 gal to continue battling it out with the female jau.

Not exactly monsters but they certainly have monster appetites.

I bought these from a local shop.
He had had them in for about 3 months and in that time I had seen them spawn twice but each time the other tetras for sale are the eggs, which are laid in a cube of jelly.
He had them for sale as Tatia Aulopygia but from the colouring I do question that.
To me they look more like Tatia Jaracatia, and the size seem about right too.

great cats that will always venture out in full tank lights for food, but disappear again as soon as it's tidied up!

let's see if I can get to see them breed.
