Nice Doug!

They look awesome! They have some nice bands for sure. Hoping to get some good bunches out of those 2 WC I saved. Moved my first 12 fry to a 10 gallon about a week or so ago and the other female has been holding for over a week.

Wish me luck!

Awesome! Good to hear.

I had a small female RR that was getting pounded on and I had to put her in a net for a week to heal. When I let her back in I they started in on her again. one more try with removing all the rocks and she's been good since. Back to full color, fins and eating.

Good to hear Andrew....telling these stories of our experiences helps everyone in the long run.
By the way, that big block in the tank is Marinepure Cermedia. The 8X8X4 block does help remove some nitrate, as the depth of the bio media is enough for anaerobic bacteria to develop in its center.

BEAUTIFUL!! Pemba was the first troph i wanted, but couldnt locate any good quality ones. Hopefully the females will be just as nice if not better.
