Additional Information
Miscellaneous Information:

I am not expecting these to spawn, esp. in the timeframe of the challenge. If they do it's a bonus.

Thanks to Reeflections for the stock. Both specimens were added to the tank and feed on frozen food that night. 1 decided to take an excursion into the weir later that same night - which feeds 100% into the skimmer. :wall: Individual was retrieved & this has now been rectified and should not happen again.[/b]

Unfortunetly I lost 1 after about 2 weeks. It was the same one that went surfing intot he wier a few times.

No trace of the body. so no news sorry. On the +ve side, the other is doing really well. Wierd behaviour though - it has setup a cleaning station and can always be seen cleaning the bigger fish.
