thanks,actually my tropheus group is seperated now, if u read my last post, i have only 3 out of the 5 fish i started wif, my dominant male has recovered, but hes still in a 4 feet wif some other tropheus. the other two are in another 4 feet with the growing up youngsters.

but at the time they were breeding, i was feeding sera granu green and hikari algae wafers and spirulina pellets. two to three times a day, morning and evening sometimes i give them something to nibble at mid day.i was damn free at that time coz i just got out of army.

haha blank tank fathering so many breeds sounds really bad.congrats, once u got them going they spawn like clockwork.

Wow... That's just cool... The pictures are not that bad considering the size of the babies.

PM me when you're selling the babies.

sorry could not get any pics of the male.... he is always hidding in a pvc pipe, but as long as he does his job i dun really care.
all the pics are found in my gallery.i know that the fry shots are quite bad, but
Enjoy!

P.S For the tropheus people out there, i just updated my tropheus gallery pics under golden kazumba colony
Congrates i ever spwan them b4 i find calvus arre actully very good parent we dun have to look after them a lot
