Nice room mate, what type of fronnys are they?

Etienne :)

The Frontosa in that shot are only ordinary Burundi that I had a while back. I now have one of the Blue Variants called Kipilli.

This colony are F1 from asured WC stocks that a mate and I collect straight from the Quarentine rooms. Very strong blues through the fins etc.

I will go out and try and get a shot or two of them soon and post them here as folks appear to enjoy pickies :)

very nice pic of the Parkinsonii Rainbowfish m8! :D ibet they look awesome when flashind each other!

nice pics all round :D

Yep they are quite specky at the flashing stage, there again most of the Rainbows and some of the Gudgeons are the same.

My particluar fav in the Gudgeons would have to be the Empire Gudgeon

Just had a closer look at the full room shot is that C.euchalus in the top tank above the barra they are a great lookin fish too.

Well spotted Braddo, yes they are indeed! Chilotilapia Euchilus - Malawi Thicklps

They are specky fish but extremely slow growers, this colony is about 3 years old now but are breeding quite well.

I am surprised that you recognised them as they are not a really common species in the aquarium scene these days, infact at one of the NSWCS meeting someone asked if there was anyone breeding this species as they have not seen them around the LFS or breeders for a long time.

At one stage I nearly sold the colony via the NSWCS Major Auction as they were not showing signs of spawning, lucky for me they were not bid on and so came back home with me. I am now extremely happy that they did!

Heres a couple of pics
