Just a quick update on my OTF Premium Super Red.

The first picture was from Arrovillage holding tank when the fish arrived in Canada in January 2010

Following pictures are from my tank. A big improvment in term of size and colour. Enjoy !!!

What a beautiful transformation over a fairly short period of time. This was indeed a good investment. BTW, how's your luck been lately (must be golden)? LOL. Thanks for sharing.

That's an amazing transformation and makes me want an Asian Aro more. Is it just the growth and food, or does dimmer lighting also highlight the colouration?
Thanks Bro,

The main diet is 90% Superworms 10% MP.
No Dimmer, No highlight, No flash, No photoshop, No back ground.
I have black colourquarzt substrate and the afternoon sunlight in all my tanks.

I remember Charles Lam has to awnser to these questions when he took and posted pictures of my OTF Premium XB.
His answers was the fish is gorgeous by himself. What he did is just push on the button.

You can see my OTF Premium XB at the Arrovillage most veiwed youtube.

Yes, my Premium XB brought us a lot of lucks for our business, included helping me to add this beautiful Premium Super Red to my collection.

Cheers.

Thanks for clarifying. Sorry, I didn't mean to imply it was a trick of the lighting. What I meant was, some people suggest that if the Aro is raised in too much, they get a bit "washed out" and it was important to not have the tank too brightly lit as youngsters.

Once again, it's a gorgeous fish, regardless of circumstances.

From my understanding bright light will only effect on the xb as it will darken its back and will not cross, other then that bright light is good for young or old, people even tan it under the sun too.

Your red sure pop up with dark base. Very nice piece.

Thank for all nice comments, he's a nice fish for sure ...

I'm pumping him up right now, every time he saw me, he beged for more food, if he continue this way, this baby will be a big boy.
The coulour might fade out a little bit but I want to go for the size first. The light in the tank is not very strong, but the tank has a lot of natural light at the day time.
I will post a monthly update so all brothers can follow his development with me...

the farm is OTF. the aros are hand selected by myself or my partner. all our aros are sourced in Singapore.

I believe the aros are reasonably priced according to their quality.

Great to see James awesome arokeeping skills in allowing the Aro live up to it's potential so far.
