    At last I've finally got my first batch of around thirty Tropheus. Five years on and at last I've finally found my niche! Any Tropheus, except Duboisii. Lets see now if I can get the same results as when breeding Demasonis and Fairy Cichlids! Are there any tips from any of you who are in the know? Wish me luck!

    @MariaS Thank you, They're in my 700 litre tank now, but I will be moving them later to my 1000 litre just as soon as I can move my Fairy Cichlids. Yes very Cute! :) Still young, so they will need extra care at this stage...

    These fishes are extremely busy and very difficult to photograph, but here's an update, they're doing well!20180511_154157.jpg 20180511_154229.jpg 20180511_154118.jpg

    @MariaS Yes they are growing and so busy! I am extremely excited about them! I am hopefully getting 15 firecrackers tomorrow, that's if they arrive, wish me luck!
