is this your favourite fish?
i prefer the foto in the wood frame
Yes it is. This fish will grow to an adult size of over 20lbs. And will also eat any fish you throw at it. Hes a real Bruiser jur4ik
ah.. now i understand what Bruiser means
do you have a tank that is big enough for this fisch? or what will you do when he´ll grow to his adult size?
Yes, I do have many tanks. When he is large enough to defend himself he will reside in a 300G monster fish tank. Ive been keeping Peacocks for over 20 years, I have plenty of experience with them.
how old is this one? and how long does it takes him to get adult?
This little guy is only 4 months old, how fast he grows depends on how much he gets fed. Right now I only feed once a day to keep him from stunting. Then I will feed every other day with larger shiners as he begins to develop.
i allways only kept small fish, actually i think about to try with discus but i´m a bit afraid about the succes in a planted tank :-s
There are so many beutifull planted Discus tanks, you should give it a try
can you give me some examples?
the point i´m worried about is that i´ll need to feed the discus minimum twice a day as i didnt want to buy adult discus and the whole food waste will destroy every carpet :-SS
Here is a recent journal
140 gallon Square journal - 12/10/2008
thanks a lot orlando, this is a really good journal. well i´m still unsure about discus - discus are beautiful animals and i´m not sure about what i want: do i want to make many different scapes or do i want to keep healthy discus?!
actually i´m thinking about a second tank - a smaller one, just for aquascaping - then there will be a happy end
