    My Fatheads

    This tank is basically a fathead breeding tank, I don't spend too much time keeping it clean. I'll have to pull the gravel back from the front and scrub the algae along the bottom sometime this week. Male is slightly focused in, hard to snap photos since they move so fast. A female is right...

    Dirty Tank

    Has anyone ever gotten them larger then 5-6 inches? Many people refuse to keep them because they are agressive, I personally love the fish, just have to keep single specimens with other faster moving fish (I.E. Giant Danios). Once he/she gets bigger I have a 100gallon ready for him/her to move...
