Susan - I have had similar experiences with the males I have kept. Mine did a lot of begging, mainly for food. If they had minds, their desire for food took up much of it...

Hit that nail on the head Very Happy Seems like a bad habit that we let them get into huh! Oh well, what can we do, we accepted the responsibilty when we took them home.

I actually have a couple of those, both males... hopefully I'll be getting another in about 8 months... cross fingers! I know a REALLY great breeder Wink
They are rather high maintanence, and picky eaters to boot. I had one sick a week ago, the whole tank got mucked up and I had to throw out some of the decor.
But I have seen some signs of remarkable intelligence, and even though they are aggressive toward eachother, I've not had any severe injuries yet. They're a fasinating species and wonderfully entertaining when they're young. But I kept an older one for a freind for a month, and can tell you that the adolesent males are like platys when it comes to breeding!

Grats on getting a new one (HOPEFULLY) in 8 months. No more for me. Mine is a little overcrowded as it is. All fully grown and having more fry than what I need. Rolling Eyes

They may appear aggressive, but they know who is in charge!
