They snatched all the live feeds. The mouth can store huge amount of food.

Recently, peacock bass breeder are breeding "Golden Peacock Bass"
As the fish reaches adulthood, it is more gold-ish then green.

Saw some such young bass selling in the pet photo.

Also attached website photo of an adult fish.

More golden bass!!

But personal preference, i find it a bit plain, it would be nice if it can retain it's original pattern.
