    thanks everyone, the flameback is an F1 need some females for him as he's getting nicer every day and his females got picked off,

    the greshakei is second generation in my tank. I'm very glad he made it this far, i sold my greshakie, his father/my old breeding group were stunning fish in there own tank some of the females even had great color, but the males refused too color even when breeding in my mix tank just too much aggression for those particular fish so i sold the group.

    This guy was from the last batch of fry spit into the mixed tank when i caught the breeders too sell them. He and one female somehow have managed too survived the cutthroat competition in tank(at about 1" a zebra bit his right gill clean off but it grew back), and predators thats what the vic's are for fry control ! lol

    He also managed too out maneuver me and avoid the net many times, I've culled the tank 6-7 times over the last year and he and the one female have always managed too avoid capture! Now I'm very glad he did as he developed very nicely, and never drops color, looks nicer every day should be amazing when he's fully mature!
