This past weekend I bought a baby black rhom (or at least I hope it is
) at about 2 inches from azthakid. I threw it in a 10 gallon tank for now until I move into my new place. As soon as I put it in my tank it attacked some feeders I had in the tank. It ripped 2 big goldfish to shreds within a night. It is the most aggressive little critter Ive seen as it attacks my finger through the glass. It is truly a cool fish. I call him Vader.

I got the rhom with full expectations that I would never see it grow large. For some reason I am liking the smaller fish better. I like the little bugger. I am getitng a 55 gallon this weekend that I am going to divide for him so he has a lot of room to swim around.

hey Xeon, how much room do they need? I was thinking last night if i ever wanted one i could make a overflow into a rhom tank for him off the oter tank i am building.
Oh yea, i start building soon!

He will not be big enough anytime soon to star in a video of his own. Currently I have him in a 10g feeder tank while I wait to move out.

Contrats Xenon, I do like them when they are smaller also. I think it would be cool if there was a pygo that only got 3-5", you could have a sh*t load in a large tank.
