Definitely. As long as the water stays pristine and quality food is fed.

Everybody has their personal fav variants, beauty is in the eye of the beholder..."pop" factor too.

A blue background, white substrate, darker rocks are a popular combination - browse through pics on the website and look at the different variants. The type of lighting and the colour spectrum makes a big difference too. That's the beauty of the satellite +, you can experiment to see what makes your trophs "pop".

Part of the reason i choose that light. My list goes as follows for choices on Trophs.

1. Tropheus moorii Kasanga
2. Tropheus moorii Nkonde
3. Tropheus sp. Black Pemba
4. Tropheus moorii Murago
5. Tropheus duboisi
6. Tropheus sp. Black Kirschfleck AKA Red Bulu
7. Tropheus sp. Ikola
8. Tropheus moorii Ilangi

I must have misunderstood. Sorry about that.

I think that most will.

Ikola, Pemba, Kariza, Leuba, Duboisi and even Reds will look awesome!

I have found that Moorii need absolutely pristine water and the right comfort zone to show their best on a regular basis. Otherwise, they can just be kind of dull looking with an occasional male popping during spawning.

So if you do decide on a Moorii variant, play around with their setup to find the right "zone" for them...

This is just from my experience.

This is with everything done. All i am doing now is cycling the tank and then ill be adding fish when it is done. That is probably 6 weeks out but that is okay. I have waited 5 years to get these fish and i can wait 6 more weeks to make sure the tank is ready

Looks great!

Ya know, you could instantly seed that tank bby rinsing a few healthy eastablished sponge filters out in it. If you are throwing fry in there you woudn't have any issues. I've done it like this for years.
