Is it normal behaviour for him to leap completely out of the water as soon as I put my hand in with food!!!, he took tetra prima out of my fingers this morning before I got my hand near the surface, he totally cleared the water to take it!! impressive jump, scared the dooberies out of me though I thought he was going to jump out and the water level is about 3-4" off the top.

Yes, he was always the most feisty at feeding time Razz
They are good jumpers, although I don't see them do it all that often. I guess he really, really likes his food Razz

I have a jumper too. As soon as he sees me approaching his tank with food he's waiting and then when I start to feed he jumps out to grab it. He's jumped straight out of his container more than once. Luckily he's being temporarily floated in my main tank so no problems.

Dudley is getting fat Sad. I am going to have to move him from the weather loach adults tank to another one. The cheeky little fella keeps swimming down with the sinking pellets I feed the weather loach and eating them. He really struggles to swallow them, this is with the crumb food I sprinkle on the top, once he has finished gutsing as many pellets as he can before the loach smell them, he is up the top polishing off his food!!, but we loves him dearly. he is growing too, I need to sort my camera batteries out, for some reason none are charging, soon as I can I will post another pic of him.

Up to date pics of our little dudley Smile cheeky whotsit is impossible to take pictures of, he gets so close to the camera he is always out of focus, and I need the flash on to get his colours, but I tried lol.

Without flash, dark and moody lol


Looks artistic this one a dudley sillouette


But he does have lovely colourations.

Haha, they're pains to photograph! It's a shame that he's being such a big that you have to move him thouhg. Do you know what tank you'll be moving him to yet?

I am not sure yet, I am debating whether to move the apisto cac babies back in with their parents, they are all female, plus the 2 banchii which I think are also female and let Dudley have the smaller tank to himself with the shrimp, maybe some glowlights or rummy nose for a bit extra. The trouble is Bisto my large male cac may eat the smaller ones of the fry yet. I dont really want to risk trying Dudley in the 180 with bisto just in case he takes a dislike to dudley (not that bisto takes a dislike to much he is a lovely fish) but I dont want to risk it.

I've heard of people keeping apistos with female betta, don't know how it'd go with him being a male.

He has scared me a hiding in the moss and falling asleep and not coming when called, one day I searched the whole tank for him, and around the back the floor everywhere and couldnt find him, then Gordie spotted him deep inside the moss fast asleep!!!
