Hi all, I recently added a young elongatus to my mixed mbuna tank. I bought him as mostly black with small but striking light blue markings. The next morning I couldnt find him! He was not black anymore, but solid light blue, is he now like passive or something?? I have a huge red-top zebra that is the ruler of the kingdom. He is the alpha male, and the alpha female is also an elongatus who is solid yellow. I plan on adding quite a few more (polits most likely)- should I bet on all of them turning into their passive colors? Thanks!

I would like to see some photo of the fish you talking about :)

The elongatus may either be female or just feeling a little bit vulnerable. What species if Elongatus is he?

Give it some time to settle and grow and he may come good

ok, lets see, im adding all this stuff to "my tanks" and i will have pics up friday when i have more time, but in a 110 gallon I have:

1 large red-top Zebra alpha male
1 large M. Johanni female
2 medium 1/2 lab, 1/2 zebra
1 small pseudo. elongatus demasoni ( the fishie in question)
1 large clown loach

The store i got him from does sometimes mis-label the genus and species, but I dont have a lot of options locally : (
if you like i can email you the pics of the tank, untill i get a good panoramic pic less than 256 mb's. Thanks for your help everybody!!
