2 males have staked out territory, and are doing a lot of stare downs. really brings up the color. these are only 1.25 " fish so the color is nice to see, bodes well for some stunning adults.

the Cyps are at it again, most likely more fry in 22 days. and my first ever good shot of a cyps teeth.




Last one shows the detail.... in the tail, i like the patterns.

Females are all redish silver, quite drab, the males make up for it.

You get about 20% yellow tails in the Kigoma cyps. Some of the yellows get a very nice blue fringe on the yellow.
