but males will color up to some extent without females...IME they do not hold color well in the presence of other haps and peacocks in an all male setup. They really need some very peaceful (possibly non cichlid) tank mates or a species setup to really light things up.

@papasmurf, sorry to hear man. My show tank also had gone to different kinds of diseases (bloat,ich,tb) which almost wipe-out all my haps and peas. Due to this I've lost interest in the hobby before, but I've realized that they're all just part of it so I decided to go on and re-stock and collect again all that's on my wishlist :)
With regards to your lithibates, I think it's the one with the black orange dorsal variant.

@Diamond, yes it's an all-male tank. When I got him from my source he's already colored up. He retained this coloration while in my tank until I lost him for an unknown reason maybe due to the frequent climate change here in the Philippines.

Absolutely stunning fish and tank!! Hw long have you had the fronts in there? He are they doing? I typically read tht peacocks and haps are to aggressive and active for fronts as tank mates...but I've always wanted one!
