They look very nice. I like burundi. Did you get any dark ones ? I have a dark little burundi i got from the LFS, it gets totally black when stressed or angry and when normal he is darker than even my alpha. I am hopeful that he or she will be very colorful as adult. His blue is navy blue.

the guy in the second pic (near the bottom) looks pretty dark in the picutre but when I look at the tank normally I don't see any too dark. Most of them have clean crisp lines which I'm very happy with since we rescued/adopted both parents. The only thing I've noticed is that both fish from the 1st holding were very light, their "black" stipes were almost a tanish brown. Now one has darkened nicely and has a good color contrast but the other is still pretty light. I'm hoping it'll darken up like its sibling but who knows. I'm not breeding these for a business so as long as they are healthy that is all that matters to me :D

The dad of these guys though stays pretty dark all the time. It may be a mixture I think of dominance and stress as we are hoping to get a solely frontosa tank soon but right now they are thrown in with some very active fish.

I started to see the beginnings of a hump (or at least a prominent forehead) at around 7 to 8 mo old. It has not been growing very fast but is there now on the alpha and i see it on two others just on a smaller scale.
