Default Callochromis pleurospilus

For those who loves sand fishes, check out these beauties.



CF has some nice specimen.
This batch has an orangy sheen, the blue still not obvious.
Nevertheless, very nice fishes.

Got 5 pcs swiming in my 5 footer now, sure do add some acivities to the somewht quiet tank previously.

I got 1 male and 2 females from CF too. Anybody has an idea of the approximate size when the males start to colour up? I can see only an orange tinge after a few weeks in my tank.
