Did you buy all these fish as adults or did you raise from juvie? and where did you order them from

INCREDIBLE tank by the way, I would like one just like that with the large haps.

thanks

Marco,

The Tyranno's are wildcaught (as jung adults), but the Bucco's, Moorii's, Holotaenia's and Venustus for instance are own tank raised fish. I always try to start with small groups (10) of young fish so I can select the best one's. I bye them in Holland and Germany from store's or private persons.

When I activate this topic it takes a rather long time to show up. Do you all have that? Is it because of all the pictures or is this just a slow site?
I have already downgraded the pictures to 640x480 pixels which makes them 50K on average.
I dot not have this problem at other forums.

Wow those tyranos are awesome! Are any of them full grown? Would you expect to have some problems when they get larger?

One of the nicest malawi tanks I've ever seen! Good job!

Great tank and specimens. The layout in the middle and right side are extremely satisfying. :thumb:

The Tyranno's are indeed great fish. Yhey are not yet full grown. They can get about 35 cm.
I don't expect problems because the tank is large enough and they are not really agressive.

Thank you all for your positive comments !!!
