I have a 4" male bnp like that. He spends more time chasing everyone else away at feeding times than he does actually eating. He is hilarious, because while he is chasing someone up an over logs in one direction, a bunch of cories, bnp, and loaches will swoop in from the opposite side and gobble up the food. When he turns back and sees them, he charges back at top speed looking furious! At first I was annoyed that I had a cranky fish in my otherwise fairly peaceful tank, but after noticing how all the other fish don't take him at all seriously, I decided he was worth keeping just for the belly laughs!

Definitely sounds like a female. A male would have tentacles by now. Lol! Females also tend to be thicker in the lower part of the body. I love those plump little bellies!

He's so cute! I've never seen them in my neck of the woods :-(
Does he mostly keep his fins down? I'm sure he'd look amazing with them up!

Do you have them in separate tanks or do you have one big one?
