They are beautifull looking fish.
Awesome pic.
beautiful, but be aware of crossbreeding.
what kind are they. they look awesome
Killer pic!
The top fish is a Tropheus Moliro and the bottom fish is a Tropheus Ilangi. I do not save fry, so crossbreeding is not an issue. They are in a 400 gallon tank, and it is almost impossible to catch a fish without taking down the tank.
Beautiful fish. How many Tropheus do you have in the 400 gallon tank? I haven't kept any in a few years, but they are my favorite fish. Do you have other species in with them?
I have around 50 Tropheus of seven types (Moliro, Ilangi, Murago, Cherry Spots, Kizara, Duboisi Maswa, Brichardi Kavala). There are around 50 other fish including shell dwellers, Brichardi (3 types), Compressiceps, cats, and a few Malawi for blue colors.
sounds real nice how about posting a pic of the tank
The tank is posted in the tank section under the name Tropheus Lagoon.
Thanks John. Feeding question, what do you feed the tank with all of the stories about tropheus needing exclusively spiralina food. I am considering a tropheus and cyp tank and the food thing is a concern. It would be a 75 gallon tank. THinking of about 15 tropheus and 15 cyps.
I have had Tropheus for 30 years and when they first arrived in this country, no one knew that they should be only feed veggies. I raised many Tropheus feeding only frozen brine shrimp. I do not believe that they require a veggie only diet. I and others have found that they can do fine with the same diet as other cichlids.
I feed twice daily. In the morning I feed a Tropheus flake I got from Cichlid Lovers. In the evening I alternate between New Life Spectrum, Aqualine Spirilina and frozen brine shrimp. Any diet change should be done gradually. When I get new fish, I try to feed whatever they have been eating. I then gradually change to this diet over a 3 week period.
those guys e freakin sweet
Thanks John. What you say makes sense. I may go for it soon. Lately sand sifters have also caught my attention. I just really enjoy the tangs, so much personality, and more subtle color.
These are my favourite ones, especially ilangi is the best. Hope, you managed to get babies.
those are beatuiful, i wish there was more of those around here for a better price, i would do a tank with nothing but those, man i love em, great fish nice pic!
