The Matumbi hunters I got from Dre-Day are around 3 inches long now.

AWESOME!!!

I dont know if mine look like that since they are always hiding when I walk by. Their siblings in a 10g tank receric system always come at me looking for food. But the other ones in a 40br always hide.

This has become one of my favorite fish, i love the colors and the body shape.

Aww, I am a proud great grandpa!! This is one of only two species of the euro species I was able to pass fry onto others from. To Fern, to Dre, and now to Kevin B ( I think )..

Great to see this species holding it's ground in the US. Not the fastest breeders, but fairly consitent.
Also I agree completely, great looking fish with unique behavior. It's worth mentioning their behaviour is best observed in a high tank. Had mine in a 60 gallon 30 inch high tank, and they really utilized all the space.

I am all out. I dont have any coming up either. My breeders are pretty old now and have not spawned in several months. I do have a group growing up. Hopefully there will some fry early next year.
