I also really like the fossorochromis rostratus but I can’t find any big enough to survive in my tank...

Bought this fish many years ago when he was only 1.5" in length. He is now the tank boss at 7.5" One of the best we've ever had the pleasure of raising.

Not necessarily one of my best looking fish, but is a vary nice female Kenyi, and, motherhood is beautiful. She usually spits after 21 days, she is now on day 23. I guess as she matures shes is getting better at keeping her babies safe as you can get a glimpse of them in her mouth safe and sound!

Here is what my wife loves to see. This is the OB side of our fuelleborni we keep, males come blue barred and OB. All the females come OB. This particular male, not full grown, is just over 5 inches in length.
The blue barred male on this page above and the OB female at the top of this page are the parents of this one.

Here is a fish that does very well for us. We have groups spread out among our tanks. This little male is about 2.5" in length.
