Sitting here waiting for the diazepam to kick in before a tooth extraction at the dentist...

Thought I'd share a couple of quick crappy phone pics of my big male Umbee. (a few months old, he's grown and filled out a lot more since these were taken.) Currently have been making some tank changes to get him to interact with the female I have in with him to get some pair bonding happening, which seems like it might be happening now. Got another female waiting in a spare tank just in case.

Fingers crossed I can get some spawning soon. Absolutely spectacular fish that don't get the recognition they deserve. They are big brutes, but also big sooks, they really do have nothing on the aggression of Dovii in my experience, but that certainly doesn't stop a big male going rogue and decimating all other conspecifics in a tank should he so choose. It would really be nice to get some fry of these circulating again.

I hope you enjoy.
Cheers. 1ccab7ec434d91fd43a8c5c2462b2de4.jpg04d802a8620ae30f01b5e3206743f1cc.jpg4e8e890f36333d7483587423afd8e84a.jpg
