hope you have a big buM tank. i have had these guys, and they are fantastic fish. however mine grew very fast. they get to 40cm without a problem and are fast moving and sometimes flighty fish. i got rid of my colony due to them just going beserk every time i tried to catch a fish with a mouthful, there were just so damn big!

Gav's on the ball, big fish, the males look fantastic once they color up.... you'll want two males so your dominant shows off his colors...

You' ll need a 350+ ltr tank if you want them to breed... with a descent amount of sand, females will stick together and need some large pots to hide in.

Experienced females can easily hold 70-100+ fry, they grow reasonably fast if you've got the space.

one of my favorites as I like the bigger Haps...
