No doubt. They are smart little buggers. In her case, she hides BECAUSE she recognizes my camera and the flash scares her. None of my other fish seem to care much about the flash, but she acts like I’m shooting lightning bolts at her every time it goes off. :lol:[/quote]

Razzo I am in love with your calvus. They are such great looking fish and I always enjoy seeing more photos of them.

Altolamprologus compressiceps Muzi gold head

Postby Razzo » Mon Apr 04, 2011 7:04 pm

Thought I'd bump this thread with some new pics of my Altolamprologus compressiceps Muzi gold head group. I added four more Muzis to the existing two that I already had: in hopes of getting them breeding (like my calvus do). I love having a tank full of Muzis! The competition between the males, the females getting biffy with each other over a choice shell. With six of them, they are not shy at all and they display full finnage for me each time I approach the tank. In any event, here are a couple new pics of my Muzis :D

This guy is my alpha (which I am thrilled that he has won out as he is my favorite)
Of course, this image has been "Paint Shop Pro'd" - I am thinking of making it my new avatar

Couple of the females getting biffy with each other. I got lucky capturing this image with my point and shoot camera.
With point & shoot cameras, I prefocus (to defeat shutterlag) and follow the desired subject around the tank (creeping in or out a tad to compensate for the fishes location relative to my prefocused image) - sound complicated :lol:

I like the pic of the female flaring her gills. Awesome fish, I can't wait until mine grow up.
