oh ok, the guy i bought them off was breeding them in an 8.5x2x2 tank with colonies of labs, maingano, demasoni, acei"msuli, various other cichlids and has never seen them display the eye biting. but yes when they start to colour up the new home will be a 100gallon by themselves in the fish shed.
Thanks for the input to
indeed they are a very cool looking fish, i'm going to try get some albinos off a mate of mine (touch wood)who is one of the only breeder in the state so far and set them both up seperatly for breeding purposes. My fish collection is adding up quite nicely but alas on 53 so far.
here is the father of my babies and to give credit where it is due...is owned and the photo taken by a guy named dennis in Warnbro W.A
