What an amazing growth rate, I remember it the day you got it.. How is it aggression-wise with other fish?

No major additions Brian, a couple of big Kelberi to bring my group to 4 and some lamprologus lemairii (a cool toothy tanganyikan that gets to about 10 inches). Finding time is a big problem lately..
