  1. [MENTION=204]mbunamad[/MENTION] I believe the Orange/red boys are hybrid not sure of which variety but one is very similar in colour to a bicolour or red shoulder the other is more like jacobfriebergi (sorry not 100% on the spelling) these were given away as display fish not breeders and our intent is to only keep them in our all male display tank. The 2 yellow boys I believe to be Aulonocara stuartgranti (Usisya) but they were sold as sunshines again we will not be breeding from them and they are purely display. As for the lighting it's just an eBay cheapy sunsun brand 30/70 blue white mix but does a great job bring out the colour in the fish my phone camera on the other hand struggles to pick up reds and oranges hahaha Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Who else has a peacock display tank that they're pretty proud of? Here are a couple of pics of the some of the boys in ours, also big thanks [MENTION=91]Munruben1[/MENTION] for a few of these guys they look stunning under lights! Will have to try and get some decent pics with a camera at the moment just using my phone. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. Thanks Orangemelly, picked him up at the LFS but apparently they originally came from a local breeder quite impressed with his colouring actually as he is one of the smallest in the tank at around 5-6cm Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Added some more fish can't wait for them to grow and colour up, going for a pretty minimalist style scape as the tank is all about the fish and their colour popping, mostly stocked with peacocks but have a couple of other species as well stocking list as follows: Eureka red peacock Rubin red peacock Baenschi peacock Dragons blood peacock OB peacock Blue dolphin Cobalt blue Red zebra Hongi Electric yellow All fish are between 5-10cm and starting to show some nice colour already Baenschi Dragon blood (bred by butch) Blue dolphin (bred by butch) Electric yellow (bred by butch) OB peacock (bred by butch) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. So after a visit to age of aquariums yesterday we've finally been able to re-scape our cichlid tank! Thanks to the boys for letting us spend an hour or more with your Texas Holey rock trying out different combinations, tank still needs a vinyl background but not sure what colour to go for yet. Currently stocked with 6 fish all juvies ATM ranging from 5-8cm they include 2x Hongi, 2x Red Zebra's and 2x Cobolt Blues. Before After Some of the inhabitants Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Maybe due to over feeding? But most likely the tap water, You can get a product called ammo-lock works wonders (we have an ammonia problem with our tap water too), could be worth trying it, I use it whenever I do a water change and haven't lost a fish since.
