Very nice photos. Clare you have competition for once. Pity the fish grid into black fish.
A good fish breeder is one who puts their knowledge in their fish. Who put their time into growing them up to even slightly resemble their parents.

The amount of people that have to do that is unreal.

I like these fish and you've taken some very nice shots. :clap: :clap:

The adults look very dramatic in their black and red colours. It will be nice to follow their progress :tu:

they are a very delicate species. not really to go with mbuna. more placid peacocks. even when adult they are like sp44's placid.

they do need to be overly dominant to colour though which is a shame.
