  1. Fish id required

    1st one is OB zebra, 2nd one I agree it looks like aceii.
  2. Lichnochromis acuticeps colouring up

    Is anyone else keeping these right now? The male I have from the Tanzania side is turning out to be the best one I have kept, seems to have a lot of red in the body.
  3. My Community Planted tank

    Hi mate, tank looks great, gots lots of variety of plants in there. I bet the plants have grown a bit since then.
  4. Couple of Tanks on the Go

    Nice setup, do you have the fish in now?
  5. taeniochromis holotaenia

    My mate has a male, they are really nice fish now. Anyone know of any females around?
  6. Proposed laws to make hobbyists register as pet shops

    No it wasn't mentioned.
  7. Proposed laws to make hobbyists register as pet shops

    If they do put a lot of resources into policing this, we should be outraged that our taxes are funding something so ridiculous. Over-regulation is a big problem these days. Not sure of they could justify a fine for selling a fish online and if so it would make a great idea for a story on a current affairs show. E.g. a case study of a kid that sells his goldfish to a friend then gets slapped with a fine.

    Everyone should just continue as normal. There is no way the beaurocrats can police everyone.
  9. Lichnochromis acuticeps colouring up

    Yeah I won't be entering these photos into any photography competitions, although highly stylized depictions, these photos are with my dodgy phone camera! I will bring out the slr next time he's showing off to the girls.
  10. Lichnochromis acuticeps colouring up

    I did a water change on my tank and the Lichnochromis Acuticeps fired up. He looks awesome and giving plenty of attention to the females. Not far off breeding now I reckon. I have tamed them up and they are hand-feeding with shrimp which is pretty cool. Anyone else keeping these at the moment?
  11. taeniochromis holotaenia

    Is there any left in Australia? I doubt they are still around.
  12. mylochromis plagiotaenia

    Hi thanks for that. I remember when these first arrived, I think about 2 years ago. At that time, there was a lot of new fish around. I think its possible it might just have been labelled wrong, but yeah my first thoughts were that it did look like an mbuna cross possibly labidochromis hongi. But the hap it was crossed with must have been elongated in that case, and interesting dark splotch under the eye.
  13. mylochromis plagiotaenia

    It looks like a really cool fish, elongated and seems like some yellow coming through up top. Interesting head shape, however not pointed. Mylochromis go through colour transformations at different times in there lives, it would be interesting to see a pic of an adult.
  14. mylochromis plagiotaenia

    I have noticed that there have been a few of these available of recent times. I have had a look at the fish and they appear different to what I have seen online overseas. Interested to hear people's opinions. If they are not mylochromis, is it possible they could be another rare species that was brought in that we should identify, as it is possible they came here under that name?
  15. Advise Needed

    What food do you feed them? A pellet high in carotine such as new life spectrum might bring out more yellow.
