more pics -

lil tems doing good - think there being two only in QT (3 dithers) and a vulture cat... they are hiding a bit the sevs (2”) might be punking them?

the two azul / xingu are eating like pigs! trying to slow their growth so i can add tems -

the other 4 - coming friday will round out this group of 10 - 5 pairs of species...

probably going to all go in a 125g until my 400g systems get here.... then i’d imagine they will live in one of those for 9 months or so until 10’ tank comes online -

😁

Just 1 more Intermedia and i believe i’ll have 2 of all available species -

debate : my kelberi are asia farmie - not spending $700 right now for Wes’s .... my ocels/ monos are farmies - of these are species i want to pursue can acquire WC from Wes or Tuic

i mainly want to see which species i prefer -

big group:

looks right now - my Broko - mono’s second place right now -

personality - ocel’s are always into my business and most aggressive in general

my orino’s are - one currently stressed about something / others too fat for his little eyes 😂

kels being pretty good, coloring more as diet improves

grow out juvi -

azul - most outgoing so far

tems - eating

pinima - look good size but rail thin....

intermedia looks good and is biggest of this group!

more pics -

got the 2 tems / 2 pinima in a 75g together -

steve’s quality tems vs the pf pinima are night and day.... thankfully the Emaciated pinima took some tilapia... i think one of them may have Scoliosis for fish....

tems eating dry 💯

moving on 😁

the lone intermedia is in a 40g breeder with this Shredded arse cat....

some updates :

i’ve got the new incoming class - still spilt -

120g - 2 azul / 2 xingu / 1 intermedia - doing great!

75g QT - 2 tems / 2 pinima - man one of the pinima is deformed - it’s head is right of midline - contacted vendor and 🦗’s .....
these guys will stay in here for few more weeks getting prazi and levismole - dewormer - wes’s had something wrong with them and died - these are the same batch....

625g - everyone doing well - fogo 9”-10” got one red / one green ?

colors looking good -

feeding - pellets food sticks / massivore alternating tilapia every other day as Kels aren’t too interested in the pellets -

Cheers All!
