Very pretty tank, I like your clean look! :thumb:

I like the way white sand and black bg work together. That's what I use too.

Tnx a lot, I really appreciate it.

I forgot to say something about food. I feed my fish with NLS Cichlid formula (ordered from UK, beacause u can`t find it in Romania), JBL Novo Malawi, JBL Novo Rift and spirulina.

I`ve noticed that most of you are from the US, and I know that there you can find Labidochromis textilis, and I like this fish very very much. I would like to know if there is a way of sending this fish safely to Europe.

Tnx in advance.

If you really like the fish and money is of relatively little weight to you getting it, contacting a breeder here in the states and paying out the nose for global overnight shipping or 2 day would ensure their safe arrival if they send them correctly.

Beautiful fish pics! :thumb:

Seems like a lot of species and individuals for a tank that size though. :-?

The fryeri does not have a harem of females and they have a rep for crossbreeding with peacocks so maybe don't save peacock fry.

Tnx.

Yes, you are right, they are too many. I will reduce their number, but right now they are to small, and I can`t tell the difference between them.

The fish that will remain, are:

Aulonocara firefish: 1M/2F
Aulonocara sp OB: 1M/2F
Labidochromis caeruleus: 1M/2F
Labidochromis hongi srt: 1M/2F
Sciaenochromis fryeri: 1M/2F
Pseudotropheus demasoni: 2M/8F
Cyrtocara moori: 1M/2F
Labeotroheus trewavasae "chilumba red": 1M/2F
Iodotropheus sprengerae: 1M/2F

Nice looking tank.

Germany is known for their world-class fish breeding. Many rare species imported into the US are coming from breeders there. I would guess shipping would be a lot cheaper from there than from the states.

Good luck.
