Thanks..
yes, he is a dd fish...
I think only the 2nd in the country and 4th on the continent...
I wasnt sure when I would get the chance again to have one...he is much, much larger than I would normally hope for but he is the only one avail...i got in touch with dd and Kevin was able to reduce the price to the point I was able to "pull the trigger."
Once again, I can't recommend dd/la strongly enough...they are the best...
and Kevin, Hannaha, and Chris...huge thank you~

he is a huge trigger...as far as lagoon trigs go, I have only seen 1 that was bigger...in 1991 I asked a lfs to get me an Assassi...they got me one that was easily a foot long and 2 inches wide...had to pick it up with 2 hands...went to Chinatown once a week to but 100 crayfish to feed to him....the Cinereus is almost as large...just a massive fish...was sent in 7 gallons of water and I had to acclimate him in the box that he came in...and the acclimation process was interesting...

ft long lagoon trigs are gorgeous, only ever seen them while diving.

just wait till your titan and queen gets passed the foot long mark.

acclimating in the box...he came in about 7 gallons...that box is a standard 20.5 by 13.5 and he makes it look small...

he makes the other fish look tiny....

the Assassi is a big fish at 6 plus inches and very thick, the sohal is 7 plus...emp 6 plus...

it is amazing what a huge fish can do to the overall temperment of the tank...the Sohal is not being such a pita today...i knew this was a big fish, but this is a huge fish..
