Ikola was my first group of Tropheus when I started, they were F1 & sold the colony. After 6 months I already missed them so I said I'm gonna get a colony & it happened (came from Greg @ LAA). U really can't beat the color of these fish. There's something in them that really attracts, shall I say they have some type of uniqueness.
BTW nice group Andrew

Do you clean/bleach the rocks to keep them white?

And yes, those are very nice Ikola. Very consistent.

Good question John... I don't typically bleach them but recently have. But since having a 4ft Current LED Fixture on the tank the algae grows much less.

But when I did bleach them. I filled the utility tub with hottest water from tap after putting the rocks in there. Then dumped about 1 cup of bleach in the tub as the water was running. Thenlet it sit for a few hours until all organics were burned off. Then I drained and refilled the tub and added 3-4 times the needed amount of Seachem safe and let the rocks sit for a few more hours. I then pulled the rocks and let them air dry over night. They were good to go the next day. Didn't smell like anything but rock.
