These 2 were from my old 55 gallon Rift tank. The blue one is an Aulonocara Stuartgranti Ngara, and the striped one is a Astatotilapia Latifasciata. It's a Victorian Hap. I wish I had better pictures of my 90 gallon Tanganyika tank to share. Maybe soon. I'm moving in November and setting it back up with black sand and redoing all the rockwork, so maybe I'll have some worthy pictures.

MY suggestions is either Daffodils or Kribensis Chichlids. I reproduce Kribs and I really like them. Simple to reproduce and a wonderful fish..its looking so decent to all the other fishes..

We keep a few cichlids but as I was working on pics, Calvus will be the favorite of the day!
