Experienced keepers, willing to pay, proof of meds on hand and a proven record of being able to detect early and treat sickness & disease. At least until multiple stable colonies are regularly producing fry. Just my 2 cents worth...

Well to them it makes sense because they are the ones saying it.

Here's the funny thing about all of this.

Do these Buffoons realize that others are importing the Tanzanain Murago by the 100's!??? Literally????


THERE ARE FOUR TANKS!!!!! FULL!!!

No just more that we found on youtube that have been recently imported in the second quarter of this year. Or at least are being posted then.

They can be. Like most Tropheus they darken up in a dark environment. A Brighter environment, they will brighten up.

Group looks great Andrew. Looks like they're really settling in well for you. Unfortunate about their status in the wild but glad you're caring for them. Keep up the good work buddy
