He is going to have some very very nice coloring when he grows up, not much of a flowerline though. The flowerline is the line of spots along their body, the fuller the flowerline the more they are worth for breeding. But his colors are 5x what Freds were at that age, he will be stunning!
You need to work with him so hes your pal not just a mean mofo in a tank. Get your hand in that tank every day and get him used to you. Hand feed him at least 3 times a week, use blood worms for the hand feeding. Any meaty frozen food will do. Just make it so that eating from your hand is a treat for him.
These guys can take chunks out of you when they get big, if you work with them they will only nip you once then figure out that your not food. DO NOT jerk back when you do get bit just keep your hand in there.

Some people have manage to keep a pair together. Fabfish is the one to ask on how that is managed.
I plan on breeding Fred through a divider.......

tim ,awsome ..there r haters out there that totally hate fh..... they can be put in tanks with fish bigger than them .... if ya put 3-4 more in there ya might get a pair .... once there bigger about 3=4 inchers there hard to keep nice to each other ,,, a 40 gal will be good for a couple years ...

I've heard alot of good things with Grand Sumo. Expensive for some pellets but totally worth it for good coloration. I had a 5g sample of it and I used it on my parrots and they grew a good 1/4 inch and had good color. Now they are back to normal
