    Thanks all.


    Nice, they are probably the second best Central in my opinion, only behind the "holy grail" of all Centrals Herichthys Labridens.

    These two are still doing well together.

    The female appears to be getting a bit more aggressive in getting his attention and coaxing him down towards some pots that are under some different piecies of driftwood.

    So lets hope.....
