Very nice shots! I also like the coloration of your cabro. I've had them before but they are pretty aggressive.

Thanks Jay! I never had any problem with aggression from my crabros. My alpha male keeps everybody in order. He allows no fighting among the others.

I have halogen lights behind the tubes because it gives a sunbeam effect in the whole tank . Especially on the rocks and modules.

Came home from a trip to Stockholm today. Collected my demasoni group and also a male and female Sciaenochromis fryeri "ghost". I don´t know if it has the same name in the US.

Yeah, daddy looks amazing. All the malawis this guy have are amazing. I´m gonna try to get him to post some pics on this site soon. The dems are in the 66 gallon tank because they are still to small to survive together with the crabros. A few went in with the fryeri and they are in hiding. I will try to get some pics of the dems tomorrow.
