There's something wrong with having an entire food chain at your home.

Razzo, I'm not sure if they're F1 or not, I didn't breed them. I can tell you when I saw them I had to have them. I was standing in front of the tank counting my money, I had enough for 6.

Here's a few photos of my female Calvus in her new 55 gallon. She's not generally shy, but she likes to hide whenever I break out my camera.

Very nice - you will love them more and more as they develop.

Muzi Gold Heads are probably my favorite altolamp. They are one fish that pictures DO NOT do justice. They are much nicer in person than in their pictures. There is a warmth in their coloration that cameras have a hard time capturing. If it wasn't for this camera thing, I think they would be most people's favorite altolamp too.

I almost didn't get my wild caughts because I didn't care about how they looked in the pictures. My friend, who sold them to me, convinced me to buy them even though I didn't like the pictures. He knows my taste and I trust him (so I purchased a pair). My only dissappoinment was that I only ordered two instead of six. Muzi's are probably the nicest of all the gold heads (IMHO) and we just don't see them (Muzi) come in from the lake all that often. Last summer was an exception. I want more :wink:

Very nice!

They are smart fish. I've got a new camera and my alltos don't recognize it and have been more shy since I changed cameras. LOL - that is the truth!

A trick for ya, leave your camera on a tripod in front of the tank. They will start to trust it the more they see it.

No doubt. They are smart little buggers. In her case, she hides BECAUSE she recognizes my camera and the flash scares her. None of my other fish seem to care much about the flash, but she acts like I’m shooting lightning bolts at her every time it goes off. :lol:
