My First T duboisi

I have been keeping cichlids for years, but this is the first tropheus that I have, because I always have doubt whether I have the skill & time to keep those beautiful fish.

On Sunday, I got 10 duboisi from Frank for free. He showed me his beautiful colony, and the fry are magnificent.

Thanks again, Frank. You are really a nice and generous gentleman.

The bubs in the bag, going thru the aclimatisation. It took a while since I didn't want the bubs to be shocked by temp and water parameter change. I slowly add tank water into the bag.

and then into the Fry saver (ice cream tub)

Hopefully, this will be a successful quest in my tropheus keeping journey.. :thumb

Man am I getting old.

When I saw the fry saver photos, my first thought was "Wow, that sand is really yellow"

Second thought was, "Where did he get the green eggcrate from, and why is it free standing in the tank".

Time to make an appointment.

Cheers, Paul.

P.S. Nice fish, btw.

Well, I have managed to keep them alive for 6 weeks and managed to expand the colony by purchasing another 12 from Shane.

They grow really quick, and now around 3-4cm.

I thought I would post the pics of those lovely dubs..

I hope you like it..

There are 22 of them in 4x2x2, but still hard to see from a couple of metre away
