Hey all long time no visit! Well the good news, me and my fiancé found out were having a baby! Bad news, no more money for new tank. I had to get rid of the Oscar and jack Dempsey due to getting to big for my 75. I have sold them for store credit at a store called Nebraska aquatic supply. I now have 20 mbunas! They are already super beautiful and they are still only jeuvinals! I will try and get some pictures updated after I finish watching the huskers get shit pounded by the buckeys tonight :( sore subject.. It's good to be back though! I've been missing for awhile!

Thanks all! Yeah there has been a lot of changes lately lol. I wish I could have found someone in the Omaha area to have taken zig zag and kudi. That's okay though. Y'know I have all these mbuna and I'm not sure I can even prenounce it lol! Is it moo-na or boo-na? Lmao.


And thanks Jason about the setup comment. I was hoping that everyone liked it. I'm like a guy with no balls when it comes to my tanks. I'm pretty insecure about them lol! They're never good enough for me, or anyone else for that matter. Thanks!

Pretty setup, but a fairly odd mix of fish. I'll hold thumbs for you that it works out as they grow up :)

I did a lot of research before getting these and I wanted colorful fish! :) that's what I got! So far I have had them for about a month and no signs even close of aggression, except for the red jewel but that's expected. They are assholes. Lol but they are all doing good and as you can see already colorful as hell! They're as happy as a witch in a broom shop. (Those commercials crack me up)

As they grow older, you may find that the jewel is one of the least aggressive in your tank. Also, they prefer softer water, but with aquarium raised fish this is less of a concern. The yellow lab will be more aggressive than it, and the striped guy (is it a hongi?), typically, slightly more aggressive again. The julies will be by far the mildest.

Why did you decide on julies? I'm just curious here, it's odd to see lake mixing :)

I like it :) that's pretty much the only reason. It'll all work out. I have faith. I have a lot of different fish in here. Those are just a few I could actually get pictures of without blurries.

I like them too, they have some really nice breeding behaviour. One of the few African fish that pair (but only sometimes, sometimes one male keeps two or more females). They're one of the fish I'd like to keep some time, maybe with tropheus.

I'll look forward to regular updates!
