He's about 3-1/2" - 3-3/4" now and seems to the most dominant of the 9 F1 Longolas I have. He has no issues with fighting off 5" - 6" Polyodons out of his space.

Nice!! How long you had them? Longolas are mean, my alpha male Longola 8.5" would size up my 10" Alpha Moshi every chance he gets. I have 12 longolas frys I am growing out, currently 2".

Thanks JT. A few weeks after I picked up the Red Eye Ikola fry from Chris is when I got the first 6 from Thomas. I traded for one and bought two more just recently.

I had to move these guys out of the 210 with the Red Eye Ikola into the 280 with the big bois because they were starting to stress out the Red Eyes and Troph. Lunangwa Souths in the 210. Lost a few from both species before I caught on to what was going on.

They are classic looking petros. Never go out of style IMO. I've had mine for quite a while and they still impress me.
