Default Benthochromis tricoti

Hi,

Just like to share some pictures of my new additions.

Bought 3 pieces from CF latest shipment, 1M2F.
I must say this batch of fishes are in excellent condition.

These fellows are great eaters, and greedy too
They start talking pellets on the 2nd day.
Don't behave like wild fish at all.



The Male

& Female

More updates & pictures in my gallary under : Tanganyika Setup.
Enjoy the pictures ....

Cheers

I got a pair as well..love watching them at the top of the tank, while my fronts cover the mid and bottom.

How big are your tricotis?

Beautiful pics, EC.

The male is colouring up, hope the Blue will be out real soon.

Agree totally that they're greedy fish!!

Haha

Looks like the calvus steal the limelight

These 2 blacks are the biggest among my collections of comps & calvus.
They are about 5".

The male trocoti is about 7".
The females slightly smaller at 6".

The male is slowly colouring up, yup the blue shin is showing.
Now have to wait for their fins to grow back the extension & it will be a sight to behold then.
