I hope ur going to upgrade b/c ur going to have problems when they get bigger.
Actually, I already had some problems with the biggest one. He killed his 8" cariba tank mate :sad: . 2 of the 6" caribas in there now are also going to move.

attach some slate to the driftwood
I tried with common rocks (maybe not eavy enough); I did'nt work. I'll try with pieces of slate. Thks

Thks everyone for your comments, I appreciate


That big cariba indeed looks a bit odd, shape-wise...
Please excuse my poor English level Jonas
, but what do you mean by "bit odd, shape-wise" ? I agree he's got an original gold coloration since I introduced white sand in the tank (here it is with black gravel) but do you see something wrong in particular ?

Thks

Don't worry about your English, it's fine...


What I meant is that that cariba looks more like a redbelly in those pics than like the other cariba I have seen (head-shape, jaw-line, finnage, shape of the body [taller]) He's not as bulldog-like as most cariba I've seen...
But it's a very cool fish nonetheless: he looks very healthy (just like your other fish), and his appearance makes him quite unusual, which is a good thing, imo... Nothing wrong with him at all :smile:

Thanks all!

what kind of camera do you use?
I use a 2 years old Olympus CAMEDIA C-2100 (10x digital zoom) that still works pretty good (as you can see).

Maybe coming from this pic. Here is another one of him with rb's. And so if it's not a caribe, what else could it be ? You start to make me doubtful Jonas

No no no, I wasn't trying to cause doubt, man!!!
Don't worry! It's a cariba for sure, but some just look a little different from most others (same happens with reds, piraya, or all other fish for that matter...) And in my eyes, this one looked a bit different in those pics you posted...
Maybe it was just the angles, and maybe it's just inside my head...
