Mac hooked me up with some awesome Dewindti and one of the tank mates liked him more than I did.   I've renamed the frontosa mother-f$%ker.  Expensive breakfast and the bugger didn't even finish the meal.

 

 


Sorry Mac

It was pretty awesome actually. Fed the tank and while the dewindti was peacefully eating mother-f@$ker came at his face and devoured his body. Sucked on his head until it was a stump with a tails then M-Fer went and sulked under a rock for the day before being beaten up by some Burmese border loaches.

So confusing:

I was surprised too as that frontie is a little one at ~15cm.  In our other tank we've a ~40cm living with lots of smaller fish and (not that we've seen) had aggression to other fish, only conspecific aggression with the secondary male.

They are mean looking fish hey :)  I shipped 18 of them over from the east a few months ago, hoping they grow slowly actually or we'll have to thin them out (want to put them in a bigger tank at home in a year)
