Do neolamprologus Cygnus exhibit the same colony forming behavior as Brichardi?

If not, which members of the Brichardi complex do show the same colony behavior?

I haven't kept cygnus, but I have kept quite a few of the others, and the only one that hasn't shown that type of colonizing behaviour was savoryi. They would allow the fry to hang around, but it was more like buescheri behaviour, as opposed to the younger ones really joining in the family unit to protect their territory.

I will stick with Brichardi then. Has anybody seen the Fulwe variant of Brichardi in konnings book? I wonder if they really look that amazing.

Yes, they are indeed very nice looking, though the picture really does show them at their very best, with the lighting just right.

I bred them for quite a while, and keep in mind that this fish is a bigger fish than your standard brichardi. Mine were a good six inches.

I don't know if I ever managed to take a good picture of them. The downside to the Fulwe Rocks variant, was they were very reclusive. The larger ones were always in the rocks, and only came out to eat.

I have a brand new 65g (36x18x24) back home. Would Brichardi make use of the height as long as the rock scape was stacked near the top?
