Default mpulungu at last!!

I have patiently waited 8 years to possess my favourite troph, mpulungu or pineapple spot. This past weekend I was blessed to receive 22 of these little beauties from what I consider to be one of the best wc groups out there, and from someone who has moved far beyond acquaintance status to friend and brother in Christ.
The tank is a 72 gallon bowfront. Aragonite substrate. Quad baton JBJ fluro with 2 pure white & 2 acitinic blue tubes. Live plants. Sump trickle filter with 500gph return. 4 resident blue dolphins (wife's favorite fish &#128523
Here is a crappy phone vid. Will endeavour to update periodically as group grows out.
Hope you enjoy them as much as I am ��������

Thanks heaps Drew. You're a great bloke and I'm a blessed man!
Blessings upon you all!
Danny

Beautiful tank Danny! Thank you for the kind words as well. I'm glad you are happy. They sure do look happy as well.

Looking forward to seeing them grow and bloom into a beautiful colony. I know you'll take great care of them.

Thanks guys. 1 of the best things about this group is how well socialized to people they are. Every time I approach the tank the all come forward to see what's gonna happen. No darting off into the rocks or plants. They really are the most socialized trophs group I have ever owned.
Thanks for raising them so well Drew. Healthy happy people lovin Mups. I'm one happy camper 😉

This is something that I try to intentionally do, so I'm glad it's noticeable. I've seen the same but mostly with wild Tropheus. Interaction with them as fry seems key to non skittish and happy colony. I had some Chimbas and they were F1 and seemed to be skittish from time to time for no reason at all. They came from a rarely visited basement environment.

I enjoy watching them anyhow and so do my wife and kids. So it's really a win win situation.

I realize that most fish do this but I'm glad that trophues do it as well. I like getting close to the tank at the bottom and watching them take turns swimming by slowly and just looking at my big ole head! lol- Silly I know. But I find it to be kind of an intimate way to interact with them. Just like getting them used to hand feeding. That a cool experience as well. They will get to the point where all I have to is open my hand and they eat out of it like little miniature swimming cows.

Andrew wears his Troph suit while in front of his fry, until they are 4 weeks old. Once the fish are social, he reverts back to human form.

I'm sure they'd rather see him in his Troph's suit than his birthday suit...lol...
