penalonga2005,
I really appreciate the generational 'family album' ...that adds a great layer of information :thumb:

Here's a pic of the 2nd generation (F3) dom male lion (LC) that is king of his tank.

They are really rare here. I miraculously got 1+1 WC but the female died somehow :(

Great fish you got there.

Have you noticed anything color/behavior wise that sets the Sanga's apart from the Lion's Cove?

Hiya Brian!

The differences between the two are relatively subtle. Some show much more in photos than in person....and may only be this way on my particular groups :roll: ...but do you see from the pics I've posted that the LC has yellow below the blue on the torso? The Sanga seems to reverse that. Little things like that...overall they're very similar and very similar in behavior (much, much more easy-going than the Mara Rocks!)

Here's a batch of F1 grow-outs from that group of afra Jalo Reef I got a while ago that are starting to shape up nicely!

I've never kept any Cynotilapia species before so quick question for you Cyno. experts, are all Cyno. species females drab in comparison to males?

Yes and no. Most females are not as colorful as the males, but not all the females lack color.
