Thanks. Hes awesome! It was actually labeled as a red linckia and it was given to me 8 days ago. This tank is over a year old and was transfered over from my year or so old 35 gallon. I am very surprised at how well it is doing. He is very active and was even handled by the guy i got it from.(I know...big no no). I spoke with a moderator on here who has had a few with great results and said they dont get as big as 1' in home aquaria. Recommended tank size is 50 gal
. Min and mine is 39 gal
. I was told this will be fine by people who have successfully kept them for years(red & blue). I was gonna take him to my LFS
but the nice one shut down and the only other one nearby will surely be the death of it. I strive to take very good care of all of my inhabitants and plan to do so with this guy even though little is known about them. No unhealthy signs yet, and if he gets big i will definitely rehome him. A new favorite as well and quite the character!
