The red empress are gorgeous! Do you have 2 Moorii in there or 21? I'm trying to figure out how you will be able to fit 72 haps in that tank when they are full grown, LOL. It IS a nice big tank...but 72?? I'm jealous.

Well it looks absolutely beautiful right now. It makes me impatient for when I will do a Peacock/Hap tank in my 125G. But Tanganyikans are going in next so the haps are probably 2 years in the future.

Picture perfect fish, I'm very jealous. I can't wait till my haps/peacocks are all settled in and get more color. The one you have labeled as Otopharynx tetrastigma (13months), I cannot find in the profiles section. Are you sure that's what it is?

Yes, I'm sure. If you have a "MC4 in their natural habitat" by AD Konings, at page 295 you can see the Otopharynx tetrastigma, but I don't know yet which variety I have... :oops:
The tetrastigma is full grown & color around 18months and lost his black pattern...

with my photo the mod/admin can update the profile section :wink:

edit: Tnx to all for the comments :)

I do have that book, thanks for the reference. Now I want one for my tank, for some reason I forget not every cichlid is in the profiles section yet.

Aulonocara Kandeense should be given a species only tank to look it's best.

I would suggest Aulonocara Baenschi as the yellows will make a nice contrast in that tank.

Beautiful!
There is a strong visual effect when you have so many of one fish (moori). It really is something you don't see very often in a hap tank. I think it really makes the tank nice to look at from a distance and it is not as confusing to the eye as 72 different sizes and colors would be.
