My computer died and i'm using someones computer that don't have a card slot for my camara card :( so i can't post any pictures of my own till i get a new computer, however The lions cove male looks almost extactly the same as this picture below. They stay fairly small around 3-3.5in. Once i move i plan on to start breeding more but i have to wait till nov till i move in my new place Since i'll then have a basement to use and ill be putting roughly 20+ 55g/75g breeder tanks and then roughly 50+ tanks for fry.

The mpanga red male looks basicly like the picture in the species profile other then his body has been staying mainly red since i was able to finnaly find some more females to add to the group.

Thanks.

:lol:

I use to have my male afra cobue and male lions cove together at one point didn't have really any problems but my display is all males. They also weren't in the tank together for very long since i bought a tank for the lions cove a week or two later.

I just need to get some more fry tanks since i'm kind of out of room at the moment and need another 3 spots for more fry.

I witnessed my yellow labs spawn today while working on my fish room the female spawns three weeks after she spits out a batch like clock work she's a pro.

Also I have two Afra Cobue holding and my male is working on the third female as we speak.

I have 28 Y/Lab fry and 8 Met./Mbweca fry the mother was only 1.5" the smallest female out of five Weird.

Running out of room time to expand again :lol:
