Bro I have eight pieces including a WC - so far they have been quite stable and sport bright yellow. No fading issues here bro. as Bro Frontosa ststed.....

This batch consists of my fries grown up. Used to breed regularly in my old tank but stopped when I switched them to this tank

My experience with lelupi use white substrate will contrast their bright color. By using darker substrate which I'm currently using, they will lost that intense yellow. Can try out

You got that right benny! Read the same thing off a book as well. They tend to be more colorful with bright background

Oh I saw some orange leleupi juvies at C328 today - fyi

Thanks for the compliments guys.

The rocks are from way way back - can't remember where I got them le. Looks good when they are covered with algae Go to nurseries to source for rocks, can find good ones there.
