X. sp. ''Kyoga Flameback'' Lake Nawampasa - Pictures

The little dude is all fired up and has everyone at one end of the tank right now, one female holding another looks gravid and seems to be showing him some interest...

I believe your questions have been answered in your thread Kyoga flameback in a all male tank?

My experience with them can be found the thread Xystichromis sp. ''Kyoga Flameback'' tank set up question...

He was being a total pain in the 90 so he went to the big boy tank, and those who ask about coloring down here is proof...

Seems like most victorians are hard to color up in all male tank.
even P.Nyerreri will not color up properly... unless i keep another male in the same tank.. but they fight like mad...lolx

Update, I pulled him from the all-male and put him in a 40 with girls, and within minutes he was showing a lot of color, he was fired up in full color again in about an hour.

They just amaze me.

hello DJ,

how big is your hap. flamebacks? did you keep him in a all male tank?
and hows your P.nyerreri? did he still color up as before in all male tank?

i have some good news. my largest P.nyerreri ruti about 2.8inch, now colors up much better. but still showing Orange instead of red. but the colors are more consistent now. but he still needs some other sub-dominant P.nyerreri in the tank to color up consistently. currently i am testing 3 male p.nyerreri in my all male tank. so far so good. :thumb:
from my experiences, i found P.nyerreri ruti to be a rather late bloomer. they don't color up properly until 2.5-3inch.
ok now i will stop complaining about P.nyerreri ruti. :D

When I was breeding them, I would have them in full colour by just over an inch.
