Thanks and your welcome. I agree his colony definitely does. To be honest, seeing a video of his Bulu's is what got me back into keeping trophs. I actually sold what trophs I had a couple of years ago and was going to focus on keeping cyphos. Needless to say I'm back to trophs. Only this time I'm focusing on only keeping trophs

In case anyone is wondering about the comp with the shredded top fin, its not do to aggression. He bolted straight into one of the rock's holes and got stuck. I actually had to help him through. Didn't know if he would recover from it but its actually starting to get visibly better.

Those juvies will look identical to the parents that's for sure!

I hear ya. I'm actually preparing to sell off my Moba colony myself. This will fund some other "interests"...

Nice work!

I actually had that happen one time and was able to help the female out of the barnacle. Then in a totally different tank with a barnacle also, I found my Male Comp stuck in one dead. He must have tried to do the same thing and swim through it and was to large for the other side. I was pretty disappointed about.

lesson learned though. If I'm going to have thing that a Alto wants to go through, it's going to large enough or a conk like shell standing vertical. They love those. It's like a little parking garage made just for them. lol

This is a video update of my 125 with my bulu and kalemie together. This was a temporary home for my kalemie. They'll be going into their own aquarium this weekend. Also changed the background from blue to black. Again sorry for the video quality. Was taken from my phone.

Looking good Miguel!!! Iblike that setup a lot. Very active and lots of color.

I think that youll get the best color results out of the Kalemie on a blue or dark blue background with light substraight. Their yellow will pop a lot more when fully grown.

Thanks Andrew. Yeah new aquarium that the kalemie are going in will have a blue background with the same type of crushed aragonite. The black actually caused them to darken up a bit. Really changed it for the bulu as it seemed to really make their colors pop.

Nice! Yeah I agree. Bulus look awesome! Greg sold me a nice colony for sure.



I agree. I think that Brichardi look their best with a blue BG and white substrate. Both colonies Ive kept were the same way. Lots of light and a bright environment.

Looking forward to seeing them in their own tank. The parent colony (now with stewartj22) had so kuch yellow on them! They are beautiful brichardi! Glad that last batch went to a good home and active memeber my friend.
