Greying Out - New Pics

I have just uploaded a series of shots to my website of Basil and Sybil sparring. It was a classic encounter with Basil lumbering around the tank at about half speed, but relentless, like a locomotive. Major, the number 3 loach, dropped his dorsal fin and got well out of the way to leave them to it. I can't figure out what Sybil is up to in these bouts. She hasn't got the bulk to beat Basil and always colours up again and runs after a few minutes. I think she just enjoys winding him up - and it works. Basil looked furious and huffed and puffed around the tank for some time after it was all over.

Anyway, here's the link and I hope you enjoy them. You may need to refresh the indexes as I have made changes here and there. The pics are in Clown Index 3.

BTW no one got hurt (they never do).
