I first got this idea with my first group of C. gibberosa Kapampa fry

He came from my very first group of fry a few years ago




Not long after this is when he first started to make an impression


This is when I first began to pick him out. He was the boss of this rock and he posed for a lot of pictures trying to intimidate the other calvus who liked his rock.






A little bit larger - he had an overdose of the gold lace on his fins




Here he is, he ended up taking some battle damage on his dorsal fin


The gold lace ended up being his defining characteristic


Here's his most recent pic. he is closing in on four inches now:




Here's his brother that I kept from the same group too (they both are in different tanks at this time)


Hope you enjoyed the trip down memory lane....
