    picks coming your way in a day or so travis , i cant take him back hes way too cool he is special enough to have his own territory with other south american cichlids ,these electric yellows hes in with at the moment are just picking the **** out of him , i never really had a clue on how psychotic the yellows can be . it seems that they have pretty much territorised the whole tank, so its time for him to move in his own tank 1 us gallon = 3.71 litres :)
    cheers

    the guy at the live fish store told me that the terror was from africa !!!!
    i told him he should start over and learn something off 3reef because some info he has given me has a lot left to be desired if you know what i mean. I read up on them and im getting excited as you said they get to 18"..... thats cool:)

    Looks good!! I just sold mine, to make room for my new salt tank. I had him for like 4 years!! Good personality, and down right mean. I had a texas cichlid with him for like a year, then one day the terror had enough of staying on one side of the tank and beat the crap out of the texas!! Lets just say I had to sell him really fast.

    PS: he was in a 55g tank ( 208 liters ) with a pair of pictus catsfish. In the pic he is around 10inchs long, and like 1 inch thick, lol. Really cool fish. And will get more territorial as it get older, at first it will be a realy easy going fish, then around 5-6 inchs they seem to get more aggressive. Ive had 3 of them in my FW days. Good luck,

    :lol: Yea. But mom know best, :hehe: . Mine would fight your face if you got to close to "his" tank. It was so cool. I realy miss him, and with I could find a reef safe fish with that personality. But most the fish ive seen so far will hide, or just wiggle for food and go back to whatever they were doing, :( .
