Your paracyps look to be all females. even in my 1.5" I can tell I have atleast 1 male due to the very noticible blue lines. maybe yours are the prima rose or whatever that sp is?

From the other pictures posted here your "blue" rams seem to be bolivian rams. Neat tank, I like the blue led lighting in my tanks as well! I dont know when I will get around to having an American tank, other than my ram tank.
Marti and Matt » posted 2007/12/03 04:46 am
Nice tank! Nice mix of fish as well and even though the jewels are africans they do seem to do well with these type of fish. Nice choices.

New tank

by Kye Williams from Denham Springs, LA / USA
In the hobby since 2005.

Description

  • Category: African
  • Tank size: 48x12x21 inches = 52 gallons
  • Tank size: 121x30x53 cm = 196 liters

    My new $60.00 local buy off ebay in final stage. $40 for tank and $20 for wraught iron stand. All I need is my stone background.

    75pounds gray slate (10-12 nice size caves)
    20pounds white sand/2 pounds white rock
    plasctic plants
    2 10-30 115volt Whisper internal filters

    -juvies-
    1 julidochromis regani "kipili"
    1 P. phenochilus
    1 tropheus moorii
    1 tropheus duboisi
    1 nimbocromis livingstoni
    1 ob peacock marmalade
    1 Aulonocara rubescens
    1 black calvus (being ordered to LFS)
    My yellow lab, fryeri and daffodil will move in when juvies get good size. The tropheus moorii is the boss right now but nothing serious.

    the livingstoni will be moved out eventually
    and was thinking of getting a frontosa juvie as the only potential large in the tank.

    Thoughts?
