hey bro. you got me excited there for a minute

i did a google for Aulonocara Rostratum. I see the comparison to the photo alright but I think the camera just caught him at a weird angle and lighting.

Here he is again taken straight on with flash. Sciaenochromis Fryeri I believe.



Cheers.

Hey bro. The white one with horizontal stripe is a juvenile buccochromis lepturus. Not sure yet if it's male or female. Adult female will look the same as juvenile but male will develop colour as it matures. They get big, around 14 inches.

Thanks for the compliments buddy. appreciate it!

The B. Rhoadesii is the star of the tank alright. Settled in very well.... but still has a long way to go to catch up on your big fella.

Thanks bro.

I kept quite a few different types of fish before settling on African cichlids.
