Altolamprologus compressiceps Kantalamba WC. I have a male and two females, but the one female is in a cave, with a clutch of eggs.

Those are gorgeous. Full tank pictures?

Anything is possible, but should you is another question.

Had to block the light, or the picture wouldn’t turn out. I took a video, but can’t upload those here. I’d like to add some Cyprichromis to the tank, if I can find the ones I’m looking for.

Very nice. I'm a big fan of adding plants to any tank I can.

That's a beautiful tank! What are the plants in the foreground? I haven't been able to find any reddish plants that will survive the alkaline water. That said. I have no problem doing this with Tanganyikans-

The comps look very nice. I would love to get a group again however they love to eat fry. My cyps and shellies breed much better without them or Syndontis cats.

Looks like crypt wendetii bronze to me. The leaves take a nice pink color on the underside.

The plants are Cryptocorne wendtii “red”. Great plant and quite easy.

I have had more luck with crypts in African tanks than any other plant! I love the look as well. IME they do enjoy higher nitrates which can conflict with the desire to keep water pristine for fish.
