Keep it natural to the lake intended. Instead of a shipwreck you need a log canoe and maybe a paddle or two or a small wood boat with an outboard motor. geek

Man you wasn't lying about the algae! Looks good maybe by the time they get settled in they will have cleaned the glass good enough for some great pics.

The fish look great (as for as I can tell Laughing )

I was kinda hoping you would keep the front glass clean so that the "nonbelievers" can see how gorgeous these fish really are.

Tropheus moorii Kantalamba "Red Rainbows" Wink


Klaus & Jimmy, the fish are working on cleaning the front glass up for ya. I'm amazed at how many more are showing good color today. There are 2 males that are going to be absolutely amazing and most of the fish are showing great potential right now. They all need fattened up a bit and a few that are very thin but considering these fish have only been in the states since Dec 22nd I think they look pretty good. To be honest, overall they are in better shape than I expected fresh wild caught troph's to be in. Every chance I get I'm down in the fishroom inspecting them Suspect

Oh yeah, how in the HECK do you photograph these guys??? Shocked I didn't think it would be that hard until I tried it... they won't sit still for anything!!!

Thanks Jeff!!! I had a hard time getting the few shots that I got, just put it on auto and started clicking. I knew eventually something would be visible. I sure missed lotsa cool opportunities tho.
