Just won the auction for this gorgeous SKKP. She's 6" kind of huge but the male ZZ I'm pairing her with is a beast at 12-14"

If she spawns with my ZZ I will immediate put her with a ThatGT. Trying to make some RT!

Any thoughts as to her shape & color? SKKP without wrapped fins?

Only thought I have is it's huge and very vibrant colored. Hope it works out with zz and gt.
I didn't even look at the fins. I'm such a noob. I was so intrigued by the color and cute face I overlooked the most important part of what KKP are good for.. wrap effing tail..

That's going to put me at least a year behind in my RT program.. oh well you live you learn

Btw, Pablo bit me today while I was doing a water change. Effin hurt yo! He will be fine with whatever female hes put with I'm sure..

I have been thinking to train my fish to not bite me. But I am too scared to start putting my hand in the tank. 😂

The only fish that bites is my BP and the ZZ. Now that she has fry in her tank I cant even clean it. She fiercely protects her brood.

I had to have my wife use net to hold him back while I cleaned. He got past her and got me real good. Lots of blood hah.

How would you begin to train them not to bite?

I've watched this. The owner kicks some knowledge. Back in the day lots of forum users would get together and get drunk and goto LFS and talk to owners. Was a pretty fun time.

I'm gonna rewatch it and see if I missed anything
