"Hi! I bought my fish as a baby, maybe 2 inches long. Believe it or not I've now had my fish for 13 yrs & have just now gotten around to looking him up! I love the pictures I've found & find all the information & comments interesting. What I can't believe is that most say these fish gets along well with others. Over the years I've had mine with angelfish, tiger & cherry barbs, snails, small gouramis, large plecostomus & bleeding hearts. He's killed them all! I actually saw him kill a 4 inch plecostomus by ramming him several times until the belly was exposed & he started his feast. That happened in a matter of minutes before I could even get something else set up to put the plecostomus in! It's been 6 yrs now that he's been by himself. I can't stand him killing the other fish! He's very beautiful though with the redish color on his throat really standing out. I wish I could put him with something but as old as he is now I'm afraid to introduce something else for fear of making him sick! Lynn"
