    Yeah Q I am watching to see how he develops as an adult. Was pretty dull as a juvenile but is starting to look pretty cool now.

    If you have a DSB and want nice and clean substrate in the DT this is the best guys IMO for the job.

    No experience with the blue cheek but bot these 2 do their job. In the beginning they a bit of a pain because of the mess in the tank but thereafter it is all cool.
