When you grow out your maroons, before the most aggressive ones kill the meek ones (as Kimmy hinted at), can you pull some meek ones aside for me? Is it possible to breed the meanness out of them?

Absolutely! ...assuming that I will be successful.

I think some maroons tend to be a bit more considerate than others. I did read about some cross bred marrons that promises to be less aggressive as a trait.

I might wind up with some black and whit occs as well. Really tempted to grow them all in a single tank together and then separate once they hit meta vs two separate setups.

Ha! In either case, you are welcome to some... and maybe be the first recipient of a new maroon coloration ;).

Coincidentally, Alpha aquaculture managed to secure a black face male and crossed it with a GSM female while I have the reverse. I've been talking to the owner there about this combo. They called theirs "black gold maroons". We had comtemplated a project with offsprings that exhibited more black pattern but I wanted to try my hands at a few rounds first myself.

@Chromis this is the pair that I'm trying to breed. They're not terribly aggressive to begin with. Probably ony pair that have never attacked me when I stick my hands in the tank.

@Chromis -- crap! just looked at my calendar and realize that I will be out of town off and on over the next two weeks. So might have to wait until next clutch. Now, I have to figure out how to keep my cultures going until then with me out of town... :/
