Well, at 1.5" - 2", Cynotilapia sp. lion Lion's Cove should be pretty well fully colored (if they are dominant). If they are all dull brown/gold, then you either have all females (doubtful but possible) or they are getting bullied around too much.gaqua said:What the #%$& is wrong with my Afra?
So my options are:
1) Get rid of the Cobalts.
2) Get rid of the Afras.
My suspicions are that the Cobalts might be stressing the Afras out so they don't color up. Is it possible it just takes Afras a long time to color up?
These are about 1.5"-2" long.
C. sp. lion Lion's Cove will easily be breeding at that size. Personally, I'd get rid of the Cobalts.
May I as why you said this?
Are you saying "supposedly" because you bought them as "Afra Lion's Cove" but not showing the right coloring yet? Or did you buy them as "Mystery Fish" but don't know what they are for sure yet?gaqua said:5 Cynotilapia "Mystery Fish" (supposedly Afra Lion's Cove - but there's no color on them at all yet)
