champsochromis caeruleus

Post by poolmako on Fri Feb 05, 2010 10:10 am

these are some pics of my male before he started to color up, over the passed 10 days he has really put on a lot of color i will get some pics in a few weeks to show the difference, this fish has grown over 5 inches in the 6 months i have had him at this rate he should be the biggest fish in the tank by the end of the year, i also have a small female that is growing pretty fast too, so far these fish have been very mellow and seem to just want to eat.

I´ve looked around a little and they are stunning when they are fully grown and in color. Found this pic.
