On my avatar photo he was about 9" /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

He had just finished scoffing food and was looking to see if he left any. The sailfin doesn't get pestered by him now, not attacked anyway /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Cracking-looking specimen Richy and nice to see one approaching adult size and being well-cared for. /cool.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="B)" border="0" alt="cool.gif" />

Thanks for the replies /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />
The tank is his and he's my favourite fish out of all the ones I have. I'd be very tempted to have a break from fishkeeping if/when he passes away. I'd probably be back in a month or so though lol
I'm currently trying to get a good video hand feeding him bloodworms /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" /> Last night he nibbled my thumb twice first before getting the bloodworm /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="Laugh" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" />

Malti, I have one with a lump if you want it, FREE /ph34r.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":ph34r:" border="0" alt="ph34r.gif" />

Hi, thanks /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> The tank is 4ft and only has BR in with 2 gold panchax and 1 sailfin plec 3",
Used to be in an 8ft but had to move house (private renting) i had to sell the 8ft as it wouldn't fit /sad.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":(" border="0" alt="sad.gif" /> I need a bigger flat/house /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />

hello, I also maintained a model just like you I made the mistake of leaving a piece of food too big and he was so greedy that eat and hang it in your mouth then pay attention to food .
