Hi,

Thanks for your feedback. More pics coming soon!

The camera is an Canon EOS 450D and I used a HQ Polarised filter to reduce reflection & glare.

Yes Mooks, I am very luck to have them. My friend who I got them off has been in the aquarium indusrty for coming 40 years now, so has alot of contacts, however they do unfortunately come at a hefty price ;)

I started with 24 Demasoni now only 13 :( They're responsible for around 500 or so F1's.

The Msobo's are wild too, but they are much more interested in food, than each other! :)

The Demasoni have been out of the lake for a couple of years now, but they are still timid and hard to get a good shot. The msobos on the other hand were scared for the first 6 months or so now they will ignore the camera flash if it means there is the possiblty of a feed!

Great photos of beautiful fish! The intense blue makes the Electric Yellows look ordinary, still they're awesome as well.

I guess the only critiscm would be that you'd forgotten to scrape the front glass of algae before the shots were taken. I can see the algae in one shot.

strong colours in all your fish nice job

the mbuna look kinda small then again once your hole tank shot is up it's probably a 10footer ;)

Hi Mate,

Your WC fronts are amazing. Nice colours and very straight barring.

Very impressive

Nice tank and fish.

I wanted to get a few Eretmodus Cyanostictus, where did you get them from? (Does anyone breed them on the forum?) And what price did you pay?

I'd love a few full tank shots, but my tanks are all in rows, only a metre or so apart, so a full shot is outer the question.

Thanks

:yes:

Thanks, no I love algae, and so do the fish! But the real reason is this was one of the first tanks I have ever bought and is a very low quality which means it gets algae on it that is near impossible to remove!

Thanks for the feedback.

The Cyanostictus are a great little fish, these guys are german f1 from bayfish(i think) and i paid about $50 a fish(i think)

What do you feed your fish? The colours are nice and deep :thumb

Everything! NLS, white worms, earth worms, maggots, micro worms, live baby and adult brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, sera flora flake, and a bit of shrimp and pea mix. I think the painted black glass also enhances their colours. But I think it gets down to quality of fish. They also get cichlid trace every week.

thanks
