New arrivals!

Postby dhough » Sat Jun 16, 2012 10:55 am

After a long time planning and multiple stock list revisions I finally ordered fish and they have arrived! 5 Pseudotropheus Williamsi North, 5 Metriaclima Sp. Dolphin Ndonga, and 5 Labidochromis Caeruleus in a 48" 75 gallon with a 30 gallon sump. I lost two of the Williamsi in shipping and I am concerned about 3 fish being a stable group. Looks like two females and 1 male right now but I know that looks can be deceiving especially with smaller fish.

Good luck. Hopefully that ratio will prove out. If it does, you can breed them and have a larger group of sexed fish within a year.

8) stock list ! sand & rocks look good too :thumb:
The Met. Sp. Dolphin Ndonga are cool fish. I'd try to pick up a few more Williamsi if you have a local breeder or fish club.?
