Thanks jeta!! I was real excited!! He wasn't as brightly colored as the rest and he was the only one not chasing the others. He is a really neat guy!!

7 is just fine. If he seems healthy don't change a thing. Most of the tank raised gbr are fairly hardy specimens if from sound stock, unlike wildcaughts.
Congrats! Nice fish. Goodluck w/him.

Thanks guys!! I am getting the biggest enjoyment in watching him!! He has been schooling in the middle of my cories!! I read that they hang out towards the bottom of the tank? He is all over the place!! And seems to love swimming in the bubbles!! Is this normal behavior??

Yeah it's normal. My guys are always cruisin the bottom. Usually they only come up for food and giving chase while in spawn mode.

He may just be curious about his new surroundings and scopin everything out! Sounds like a cool fish. Most newbies will act reclusive.
