I just got 6 of these guys but they are only 1 3/4-2in. in length. I've seen the spieces profiles on these, but I want to see yours. Let me know what to exspect when they grow out... :popcorn:

Here is a photo of mine from about 3 months ago. He is even nicer now. His color is much more rich and his finnage has grown nicely.

FishareFriends: What size tank did you have yours in? Good job on the species only tank. Nice and simple. Your fish look great.

Everyone else:
My experience keeping Spilonotus Tanzania is that they require a very large tank (ideally 125g or larger). They are truly one of the best looking Haps out there. At feeding them they'll happily greet you by splashing you! They look great in a mixed Hap tank!

FishAreFirends: Those are the ones that I wanted, too bad they sold already :( . But steve gave me a great deal on the ones I got from him.

TorontoRaptorsFan: Thanks for the advice. i have the little guys in a 29g, for now as they are still very small. But I am going for an all spieces or maybe a two spieces combo with my young Placidocromis Phenochilus "Tanzina" group. I'm got these in an 80g mixed peacock/hap, but I have an older 180g that I just got from my brother in law sitting in storage waiting to be set up. He gave it to me over the weekend for promising to show him a great time in Portland during the Cinco De Mayo celebration! :lol: :lol:

He was about 3.25" long when the photo was taken. He has grown about an inch since and his blue has taken on a "velvet" appearance. Definitely a stunner.

This guy I had for many years before I lost him, he's approximately 10+ inches in this picture.
I've got some juvies I'm growing at the moment.
