    Yes, it could be that the GBR's are still just young. They were only in the tank about a month before I added the apistos. I'm not even sure what sex each of them is, but there wasn't much aggression between them.

    I don't really have any place to move anybody right now either as my other tanks are either too small or too stocked. So I'll just have to wait and see. There are a lot of plants and a good size piece of driftwood. There's only one flower pot serving as the apisto's cave, so I plan to pick up a couple more this weekend.

    Agreed, man. It really wasn't long ago that Apistos were something rare that came up in "what should I stock" threads. I'm very happy to see this transition, as well. =]

    Hopefully I can get some fry out of 'em. I expect it to be a tough feat in that tank, though.

    Th0se Cacs are righteous l00king fish, Kev. I want s0me 0f th0se in the w0rst way. That male is g0rge0us (never th0ught I w0uld say that, but at least it's ab0ut a fish!). I saw a mega red at an LFS and they wanted $40 f0r it- it stayed there. I wish y0u all the best with y0ur new rigs and intenti0ns!

    You might be lucky. Just be weary of their knack for tank dominance and watch them as they grow. You might not have a problem or they might turn into tank terrors.

    Thanks bro, I appreciate it. I definitely got lucky with some excellent quality fish. Agreed on the male. ;P $40 for one cac mega red? That's crazy talk! If these guys have fry (and I can rear them), I'll help you out in that area.

    I'm with you, Judi. That's why I had to get a couple of more. =] Love 'em!

    So, I was able to get a few shots of the Apisto. panduro tonight. Of course, they waited until after I was done, to show off some bluish colors, which were awesome looking... That was at feeding time - it's funny watching them check out the different foods I try every night. They stare at it for a while, then they either decide to taste it or move on their way. Quite the inquisitive creatures.

    Anyway, onto the pictures.

    "Hey." Not the best head-on shot, but I liked it. ;P








    I could only get a couple of pics of the black spots (panda spots) on one of 'em (I think the female showcases these colors). I really like these guys. They make use of the entire 20gal long and constantly graze on the sand. Definitely fun to watch.

    I was also able to get a few more Sterbai shots - they're coming out a bit more. =]

    See? They do swim!


    Here's a group of them huddled in the Christmas Moss.


    A close up of the big guy.


    The colors are definitely beginning to show. This is probably the biggest one in the tank right now, though. He's about 1/2" - 3/4" or so.
