Nice, nice nice, but still young I suppose? They are said to "calm down" when older. And even more beautiful :)

Nice snooks, nice clean look to them. Look great.

You're finding them aggressive? Probably so amongst themselves, especially if in breeding form, or maybe its the age of yours as well, but I found them very timid, almost boring in behavior. I kept and bred both morphs over the years in single species set-ups. They fed very "loudly" with floating foods, complete with water splashing on me, and the floor.

Hi, love the shape yours have. They look extremely tall bodied and well fed. Have yours developed any red on the unpaired fins? This is a trait I see in some but not others and was wondering what, if anything, could be the cause of this.

They start to get a nice green/gold color at around 9-10". Kind of like the pics in the books. They breed very easily as well.
