I finally was able to change the sand and get everyone back into the 100g.

Recently moved the Shellie tank into the new fish room.

I have had several spawns from the Cyps I got from you a few months ago, even though they are not nearly full-grown. Very precocious! =D>

BTW, where are you posting your pics so you can link to them on this forum? There doesn't seem to be a way to just upload images. TIA.

fishguy1978, I don't know how I missed your Dec. video update but watched it today and looking good. Also nice to see your fish room and the Shellies move there!

Not much to report. Tank continues to run and the shellies continue to multiply.

I have a 55g that I set up to house a Syn. Angelicus into which I introduced a few multies as dithers. I thought that the syn cat would eat the fry and keep the numbers down. Well, she is not doing her job and the numbers are increasing. Could I add a L. Malawi Dimidiochromis Compressiceps? My LFS has some that are 2-3in knowing that they can attain 12in and buffering my tank for L. T. is the upper end of the ph tollerance.

Many larger fishes don't view tiny Multi fry as worth the bother, but there are quite a few Tanganyikans that will fulfill the fry control function effectively without turning into 12" monsters. Some of these will also coexist with Multi adults in a 55, if that matters to you.

That S. angelicus female has always been very mellow; glad to hear that she is doing well! :thumb:

That’s a 3/4in elbow for size

Well, on Friday I scored a Sumbu dwarf. It’s still tiny, about 1/2in. Got to watch it slurp down some frozen blood worms. Gonna be a long haul to get some size on it.

Grabbed a shell with some new multie fry to teach the Sumbu to hunt

Really long haul. Altolamprologus grow painfully slowly... :fish:
