I'll start out with a couple of pics of the fish in transit. After seeing these fish out of water I'm going to have to re-evaluate the size of my fish on my sig. I put two of my smaller fish, my cariba I thought was about 10 1'2" and my piraya that I thought was about 10" in a five gal bucket together. The pail measures 11 1/2" inside to inside. The cariba was touching both sides and his tail was curled and he spent most of his time in the middle of the pail. My biggest cariba and biggest tern have to over 13" now. These pics don't neerly do justice to the size of these fish when they are out of water.

Heres a pic of my smallest cariba that I thought was 10 1'2" and my piraya that I thought was only 10"



Here's my tern that has to go over 13" with my piraray thats about the same size as the other one that I thought was 10" This tern is amazing. This comming May I will have had him for 2 years. I got him from George when he was the size of a dime TWO years ago.



These are my 2 biggest cariba next to my almost 13" pleco

I just took some pics and I think I have at least one good one of the big tern. I'll try to put those up tommorrow.
The water still hasn't stabalized so they really haven't been fighting for dominance just yet. That hasn't stopped them from eating. They've pretty much eating a little of something every day. I only give them a little at a time so they don't waste anything but it's still a pretty good show. They all come right up pretty much as soon as I drop the food in the water. They have never done that before. Some of these fish came from tanks where you couldn't go near the tank without them freeking out and wrecking something. They feel very comfortable with all this room to retreat. The key to this tank is that it's four feet deep. If I walk up to the front they can comfortably swim to the back and get away if they want to. The same go's for when they have their fights. P's are to lazy to chase all that ways. They give up pretty quick. Thats it for tonight. I just have to give a quick breifing. I should be back tomorrow night. The only problem here right now is that the computer is upstairs and the tank is in the basement. I spend most of my time in the basement til I can get a computer down there. Then I might just live down there.

i'm really glad this is all working out for you after the little setbacks you've encountered along the way. the tank will be simply world class when finished. i think the pygos already are.
