Default Tanganyika featherfins......

Hi all Tanganyika fanatics

Lets discuss about these beautiful fish.
Anyone want to showcase their featherfins ?

Cyathopharynx, Ophthalmotilapia, Benthochromis and others...

Let me start by sharing with you some pictures of my Tricoti.
Currently keeping 2 males & 2 females in a 5 footer.





Up close !

Beautiful!
These are gotten from Norvan's 1st tricoti shipment.

I missed out on Jason's because my 5 footer was not ready at that time.

Not many here keeping these beauties, unfortunately.
