This pretty much makes you the coolest person on the forum and that wont change unless Johnno starts breeding rtc's somehow.

Nice work Matt, super effort!

I like your thinking. im really impressed there still spawning these fish, I kick myself for selling them, but I couldn't keep them with anything when they where breeding, they even attacked my hand!

I read that in the wild nothing is found within 5 or so meters of a peacock bass nest, that's how territorial they got, they even beat up my rays lol!
