Hey guys! tank is finally cycled and now almost stocked!
I have 10 Cyno. afra "Jalo Reef" and 4 Met. sp. "Daktari", still waiting on a group of Met. sp. elongatus "Chewere".
Thanks to all of you for the help and suggestions. I'll post more pics/vids as the fish continue to mature. Hope you enjoy!

Jalos...and one daktari

It's a very natural and understated look. I think exactly what you were aiming at in your journal post you hit dead on.

Thanks Joel and monisaab!

promoe: I have two males for sure, but i'd bet there's at least two or three more. The two jalo males and daktari male have already had a few, very mild and harmless disputes for territory. The Daktari male has also already tried spawning with his biggest female a couple times!

JimA: Thanks a bunch! I'm pretty sure that the rock is granite, I just got from my backyard.

I breed a group of daktari a couple years back. Love these fish. Nice tank! Look forward to seeing your fish grow up.
