Don’t do that!

You’re stressing me out when you post a pic of Altums on their sides! If they freak out they gouge themselves and now you have a scar on the body.

Sorry for the lousy pics. Dark tannins and these guys are quick but the real reason is I suck at taking pictures.

These guys had full erect fins and fully span-out tails right out of bags and not skittish at all. Curtis did a great job with this group which makes my job easier to just enjoy them. 

Keep me on the list for the next group you get shipped in.

I am glad to see the Altums doing well for you. 15 more left!

Awesome - I like those pictures the best. Yes they will eat out of your hands and will eat flake food, discus pellets, freeze dried blackworms, small cardinals, frozen anything - beefheart/bloodworms/shrimp/krill

Come on over to the dark side Rich, Link does not work on my end. 

Over the years since 2006 when I first kept Altums both sub adults and grown out from dime size...these are hands down the best and healthiest Altums I received.

Hey Rich, here is an idea. For plecos: l236, l134 and l183. For Tetras: Marginatae, bleeding heart, lemon, ember, rummies, cardinals, black emeperor an d splash. For good measure cories and ottos as well. I dont follow any rules as i let me fish dictate if my tank is doing good. It is a planted, showtank and breeding tank all in one. Enough talking and here is a pic:

They had both wild and tank raised altums at the OCA this weekend. They all looked great.
