Who'd he get in a fight with that gave him the uneven trailer length?
Ok, Razzo ruined my fish! I never noticed those uneven trailers until Razzo pointed them out. Now my OCD is in overdrive and I can't NOT see it. Thanks Razzo.

Awe, I am sorry. Bad Russ! bad Russ! Wow, do I feel like and A$$ now

I don't hold fin "damage" against a fish, Tau's trailers had been trimmed down by Nytazi before Tau took over and Tau returned the favor and trimmed down Nyatzi's after Tau became alpha. The role of alpha is usually won and with that comes fin damage. I just figured there was a good story behind that. Perfection has been reserve for heaven.

Bob, that is one of the nicest Zaire gibberosa I have ever seen. Please forgive me for my stupidness. I am in total envy

I guess now I am obligated to drive out to Westcheter with my camera. I can check out my old HS (Proviso West) while I am out there. LOL, is that safe to do? It was pretty rough when I graduated in 1985.

Razzo, I'm kidding. But honestly, I really never noticed it. Lol. As for any battles, that guy has been the undisputed king from day one. My guess is it's genetic, as I've never seen anyone challenge him.

Now, as for photos? I would welcome you into my house to take pics of him. He honestly is so much more ,a jested in person. I try not to brag, but he really is the nicest Moba I've ever seen. I just hate to say that about my own fish, y'know? But, if you really want to come and meet all my fish, and snap a couple photos, I'd certainly welcome it, and maybe even cook ya some dinner, or grab a bite nearby!

Nope. He's F1. He's offspring from a part of a group that a friend of mine got in about 6 years ago. Had them from fry. Exactly why I say "buy the fish, NOT the letter". Lol.

It's OK to brag, we all love our alphas. We all understand

He is "top shelf" I can see that from the pics and trust me, I know he is even more magnificent in person. I would consider him one of the nicest Moba I have ever seen too.

I would love to drop by someday. I'll keep that in mind when I know I have to travel out your way.

Next question: how do you deal with the eggs from the Nerrite snails? I have been afraid to have them in an acrylic tank.
