Mixed Malawi

Post by Emma on Mon Nov 23, 2009 12:44 pm

Very generic fish...but my options are limited out here in the boonies. I'm looking forward to stocking a 125 gallon tank very soon! Enjoy a few shots of my fish past and present.

Thanks! The Empress are my favorite! The male just has the most amazing colors and the females add a nice silver shine to the tank.

Great looking fish. At least it looks like you have good quality fish even though selection is limited.

Tanks are looking good, Emma. Is that an anubius in the center of the planted tank? It looks great.

Yes its an Anubius, when I got it only had 2 leaves now it sprouts a new one about ever 3 to 4 weeks. It looks like it might want to flower? Its not a leaf... or its trying a new way of leafing out. lol

I really like the red empress, both male and female.

Yeah I had to take Ven. out, he killed my Red Empress male. I'm still waiting on my 125 tank to cycle so I can get some more fish.

Male Auratus

So far so good we will see what time will bring. As of now the Socolofi is tank boss, but the Auratus has a way to go before he is full grown.

Love the Melanochromis Auratus. I´ve had them several times over the years. One of the toughest mbuna I think. A cichlid that does´nt work at all with other horizontal stripped mbuna. I learned that the hard way the first time I had them, but it´s an old favorite that I will keep again for sure.
