    how far away are the little red bembas do u recon?

  2. i have a colony of 10 tropheus red bemba and i think one is holding now. it has a bulging out chin and sits in its own spot and keeps all the others away. this is my first mouthfull of tropheus but have had hongi, do the same rules apply, just strip after 15 days. i heard that you should strip the first mouthful because they wont breed again? should i put in a separte tank? has it bred? what do i do
  3. having mollies or guppies in your tank is a good idea especially for your black calvus. there babys will be great for conditining them. good luck
  4. very sorry, i had no idea you wernt alound. i will never do it again. i apologise.
  5. anybody, whats the highest protein food. started feeding them new life spertruim cichlid forumla. got a trio of hongi with them and after a month have had 3 mouthfulls from 2 females. and big mouthfuls of like 15-20 and there only small hongi.
