Love your tank. :thumb: I had a saulosi only tank for a long time. Started with 15 juvies and ended up with 8 males and 7 females. I kept 3 males and the 7 females in a 55g with rusty for a little while and eventually only kept 1m and 6f in a 30g tank. Now i have my male in an all male tank and my females in my parents tank at their house.

Nice setup and love the choice of species!!!!

Nice tank! Ps. Saulosi is a good choice for a species tank. :thumb: I had a 38 gallon(3ft.) saulosi tank for a year - very prolific breeders!

Thanks for all your feedback!

The males are growing well and showing their colours:

WOW.. They color quickly. First photo was June 15 & the most recent, July 2.

How big are they now?

Also- Are you doing anything special to promote the growth of the Val?

Thanks-

Now they are almost 6 cm and they are really colouring fast!
I do nothing for the valls - just put them in the sand.

Cheers,
Diogo

Congrats! Saulosi are probably my favorite Malawi fish. I have a group of them with other Mbunas and right now thinking about going solo with them in the tank. Muito bonito o aquario. :thumb:
