Looks like they are in the deep. Once I upgrade my hap tank I was thinking of getting some fronts for my 100g. Your fish look awesome!

I can assure you Charles, that his fish are F1 Moba. These are my F0 that they came from. You may have seen some of my pics on Cyphos.com before.

I told you photography is not one of my hobbies... And yes the flash washed the color out a bit, but if I don't use the flash they come out all blurry... And also remember that my fish are halflings still. :p

Dunno... I just do weekly water changes. In that tank all there is as far as filtrations in two hydro-pond sponge filters. (No carbon or anything special) Perhaps the water is just cleaner in the USA. j/k :D

lol thats probably true, that and we are limited due to drought here in brisbane, we arent allowed to use over 140 litres per person , and max 600 litres per house hold or u get big big fines...

not alowwed to use a hose, wash cars or water plants (unles with a buckey)

makes the weekly water changes on my 3 tanks a very angry family day :(

These guys are now in their new and final home... Check out the oolitic sand I got from the Great Salt Lake in Utah, USA. (Pay no attention to the fact that I need bigger rocks that are still in Idaho :oops: )

Very, very nice! Once again - congrats :thumb:

Big rocks are not a must. I would; however, build a frontosa bank right smack dab in the middle of the tank and possibly put some pvc/abs elbows, wyes or tees off to either side. I'd start with your frontosa bank.

Please keep posting pics :wink:

CYL,
Russ

What is a frontosa bank? :lol: I want to go for a more natural look so I will have to pass on the PVC fittings. (SHow tank) I do have a few pvc elbow in with some shell dwellers though. :wink:

Alpha male Frontosa in Lake Tanganyika will seek out a cave, claim it, dominate it and attract their harem. Frontosa bank in an aquarium is an attempt by some Cypho keepers to help recreate that atmosphere. The person who I purchased my Wild Caught Kapampa from does this with all of his adult colonies and is an extremely successful breeder.

Here is my alpha male tonight in his frontosa bank (he loves HIS frontosa bank)


Another example of frontosa bank


Hope that helps,
Russ

Ah a cave... This was in my plans after I make the trip to Idaho. Just never heard a cave called a bank before. Nice fish BTW

One more question, now please don't take offense to this.
Do you think there are plants where the gibberosa are collected? (So deep) I have seen a few people put plants in there frontosa tank and always though it looked out of place.
