I had to move someone. I ended up moving my gold saum.. He's grown to believe he owns the tank.. Which he should it's his size, but he wouldn't let anyone else out, my Pleco has chunks all over his fins taken out and tailless (my oh so special firemouth) had been cichlid stone bound for a few days popping his head out to bite at food and my jack Dempsey was starting to show signs of being scared. I took out all of the flat rocks, that made the gold saum want to breed, I tried warmer/colder temps so he wouldn't want to breed, still, he owned the tank and if anyone was seen moving, there's a problem. I was ping to move tailless, because he was having the biggest issue, the gold saum and jack Dempsey not liking his presence.... I must have not added him young enough.. He was last..
I'm torn tho. Because I don't see myself getting a bigger tank anymore. I planned on it. But at this point, I need one now and I can't. So... I have my 75 gallon and the 20 gallon, I need to either keep my dream fish, the gold saum that I've finally been able to tell is male, which I was hoping for. Or I re home the gold saum, and hope the jack Dempsey will deal with my firemouth (tailless) ...
My jack Dempsey and firemouth are so special.
Jack is blind in one eye, due to opaque eye at a young age when someone else owned it, and I started with him.
Tailless is special, all in his name. From all me and my lfs
knows, he was born tailless and has done so well up until now.
My gold saum was my 2nd and I found out about his breed after I had researched a lot, and since then, he's been my dream fish.
😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 big decisions to be made.
I wouldn't feel so bad re homing someone if I knew they were a good home, and that I could get updates.. But still.
