A lot has changed the last month.

The Tropheus moorii Lufubu are all for sale.
And a lot of fish were already sold.

The remains in the tank are:

1/1 Mastacembelus ellipsifer F1
1/1 Petrochromis trewavasae (with 6 youngsters)

The new cichlids are:

6 Eretmodus cyanostictus "Kigoma" F1 (all youngsters)

Beautiful tank, in both iterations. :thumb:

Please keep us posted; I'll be interested to hear how the Petrochromis/Ophthalmotilapia mix works out in a tank this size.

Thanks a lot!



No problems so far with the combination of Petrochromis trewavasae "Moliro" and the Ophthalmotilapia boops "Nkondwe Island".
But soon the trewavasae's will leave too.

We had some fry of the boops already, not much just 4 survived at the moment. Fry from 2 females.
