I just wanted to share some pics of my fish. I'm more of a fish person than reptiles to be honest but my reptiles are creeping up on me :). Anyway I have a blood parrot cichlid with a jack dempsey and severum. They're in a 55 now and will upgraded soon. Any way here are my babies.

I had to feed them to get up close pictures. I also have Multifasciatus (african shell dwelling cichlid) but they're impossible to take picture of.

Here's my Flowerhorn and Redtail cat.

You got a pond out back for that red tail? You can practically watch those things grow.

We got in a shipment of those once and they were in bad shape. Boss told me if I could save them I could have them. I saved 11 out of 12 and they all regenerated their burned off barbels and were fine. I threw a 2" baby in my 130 gallon South American cichlid tank and I was afraid my juvenile oscars would swallow him whole. They usually don't bother catfish, so I decided to risk it. 4 Months later the catfish swallowed the oscars. No joke. My RT once swallowed a suction cup that held the heater in place and I had to literally stick my fingers down his throat to pull it out and save his life. Mine used to come up and beg to be petted too. I love the species, but man, I've never seen anything grow that fast.

I have two ponds out back. But neither are large enough for a full grown Redtail.
I'm hoping he'll stop growing at around 3 feet.
Otherwise, I'll be doing a much larger pond.
