Festivums!

I haven't been on here in a while so I thought I'd show off my boys. They're both about three years old and must be separated or they will fight constantly. They killed the third male I had. When I first got them I was under the impression they were peaceful.


Bolivian rams, blue acara, mating kribs, green and gold severums, firemouth, festivum, killifish, salvini,etc,..

Re: Festivums!

I've always thought it's A. maroni.
But now I see, it's probably C. festivum


A lot of things I do not know. Learning has no end

Re: Festivums!

Only thing I don't like about them besides destroying plants is how bitey they are. If I put my arms in their tank to replant or even clip on a cucumber slice they attack. My severums were the same way I guess. I've often thought about trading one but can't bring myself to part with them I've had them so long. I still regret selling my large sevs.

Re: Festivums!

Normally a 75 but that last pic is from my quarantine tank. I had to place him somewhere quick to stop the fighting.
