Nice setup and nice fish - especially the new ones!

As a side note, the pronunciation of scientific names is a difficult and sometimes controversial issue, but in the case of demasoni I think it's pretty clear. They are named after Laif DeMason, and as far as I know he pronounces his name with emphasis on the 'a', as in stonemason. The name of the fish is pronounced de-mason-i - at least that's the only way I have heard it pronounced in talks and at cichlid events in my area :)
