Few pictures of 12" male RTM. He is in 220 gal and rank bellow 14" ex C.Pearsei (Pearsei is a tank!), but does fight back from his corner when pushed to the limit.

Very BEAUTIFUL fish. I admire those who keep working with a fish(s) for a good while to see theirr potential and all they have to offer , and don't keep constantly changing the species of cichlids they keep to chase the next new thing.... :D

Thank you for good words man :D You absolutely right, I keep each fish for ages, I start from the juvenile or even smaller and keep most until they die. These guys are my wet pets, I can't let them go unless it is really really necessary. And this is the main reason plus nostalgia for past why I don't have too many chances to start new species. And I do have number of tanks!
I am not sure if you had chance to see, but this is my thread I started when I only got this Moto, more then 4 years ago.
