I really don't know how they'd do, I don't have any experience to speak of with them.

But I have some sad news with mine. I lost one today. It was beaten up pretty badly during the night and I moved him this morning, but he didn't make it. The bigger one had been chasing it around quite a bit. I thought 75 gallons would be plenty of room to escape and have territories, but they are so aggressive to each other -- even at their size -- 1.5 to barely 2 inches. Sad

Sorry about the bad news Betty. Yes, they are very aggressive to each other and need a big tank with a lot of hiding spots. I have a group of 5 in my 125g with my Tropheus. They are in there now since about 5 years and still chase each other when they meet by accident. These fish are certainly not for for a smaller tank even though they only grow to about 4 inched.

The easiest way is to upload them to a photo hosting site like photobucket.com. I'll be happy to help if you need it, but it's not to difficult too figure it out after you create an account there.

Great shots! They look to be in perfect shape. My favorite together with calvus among Tangs.
