    Thanks. He's a solid 5 inches and getting bulky now. He was about 2 1/2 or 2 3/4 in the first photo. Considering he was barely over an inch when I got him in Sept of 2012, I'm thrilled he's progressed so nicely. Often EBJD's die before they get to the 3 inch mark as a result of some type of intestinal problem. I babied this guy, let me telly you. He started out in the 90 but I soon moved him to the 30 gallon because he wouldn't or couldn't compete for food. I kept him in the 30 for 6 months and practically hand fed him. He was a really picky eater for the first few months. When he got large enough that I was concerned he might start looking at some of the tetras as lunch, I moved him back to the 90. He's really come of age since.

    Thanks Matt. I think it's the angle on the most recent photo that makes the fins appear smaller. Also, he was at full sail in last year's pict. I don't think I caught him fully furled in this recent photo. As you know, it's VERY difficult to get nice still shots.

    thats a nice looking fish. Someday I want to get a nice 4' tank - I know the range of size options is large from a standard 55 up to a think a 120 tall and various sizes in between. Honestly I may go with a 72 or 90?? bowfront.
    Current tanks:
    37G FW - 3 Pearl Gourami, 4 Black Mollies, approximately 20+ Molly Fry, 5 Assassin Snails | 10G Planted FW - 14 Molly Fry, rocks, DW and an Anubias Nana - journal

    Such amazingly beautiful fish. I really need to get into the big cichlids.

    Btw, congrats Cindy on a job well done. You did a wonderful job of raising your babies.

    You're making me want an EBJD but I don't think it's quite a match for my roseline community.

    One thing I've always loved about this tank is that it's kind of an unconventional mix of fish that many people wouldn't usually put together.

    I love the little red patch yours has. Mine has character more than flash because he was heavily abused by a prev owner and their africans...

    Be careful what you wish for... You will have an unhealthy notion to keep a 300 gallong tank with discus and a 500 gallon tank with these:
