Coming over this weekend and stealing your fish! I do seriously want to stop by soon, been so busy.
Your setup looks outstanding! What kind of rocks/where did you get them, and what kind of plants are in there?

I have fry from all three you list but I have never shipped before.. If you were local, you would be welcome..

Just don't know about the shipping deal.

The Demasoni has a new home. He was starting to disrupt the apple cart... :D

Thanks for the compliments BTW..

Your tank is looking great! I'm about to switch out my 125 reef at the office to cichlids. Yours gives me inspiration. :fish:

Your tank looks great, and the fish in very good condition. Congrats.

They aren't that aggressive to other species, but in 4ft tanks or smaller, they can be #%$& on the females.

It's coming along. The fish have grown a lot. I've added some new ones. I just added some white top hara's. They are still on the small side but I hope they'll color up soon. I posted some pics recently under the photography page. Check em out if you get a chance. I really like your selection of fish. The msobo's are sweet! I should've picked those up instead of the maingano's. Have you had rusty's? I was thinking about trying them too, maybe in the 125.

Cantrell...if you could choose one... would you keep the Hara or Msobo?

Hara wasnt even on my radar until I saw your picture. Msobo is on my "i really want" list, but your Hara's are amazing.

125 G - XP4 and AquaTop CF-500UV - 5 Pseudotropheus Williamsi North, 5 Labeotropheus Fuelleborni, 4 Lab. Hongi, 4 C. Moori, 1 Acei Ngara, Red Empress, Venustus

Thanks Fogelhund...

There are 2 males (for certain) and atleast 8 female Msobo in the tank & the males are constantly trying to persuade. I would fear just how rough they could be in a 4' tank...
