Too close to call in my mbuna tank. Who's 'tough' depends on who's dealing with who. This is only a mildly agressive 6' tank, with acei, estherae, yellow labs, c. afra, mainganos, lab mbambas and lwanda peacocks. With the exception of the yellow labs, right now the dominant male of any one of those species (including the lwanda) can take on an attitude and rule for awhile. One of the ones that has been standing out of late is the acei ('cause he's gotten so BIG), but the terror is usually directed towards conspecific subdominant males...



(PS: I actually thought of entering this shot in the montthly photo contest, but since you can see more than just the acei I figured it would be disqualified as a 'tank shot'.)

He's a Cynotilapia White Top Hara (Galireya Reef). ;-) He's still quite young (2.5") but has been busy. ;-) I have two holding females. :D I think I have a ratio of 1m/6f which means he's one lucky guy. The only other males in the tank are 2 smaller Pseudotropheus saulosi so it wasn't hard for him to become tank boss!

This dude is the bossiest of the bosses. It's not even close. He doesn't terrorize, or even really chase, but NO one messes with him. I have NEVER seen ANY of the others challenge him. Remarkable actually.

Well, in my hap/peacock tank, this guy likes to THINK he's the boss:

But the boss is actually this guy:

And in my mbuna tank, this guy is the boss (thank god, that's why he's always coloured!)
