I believe that Namansi reef like any and all tropheus show more or less color at various times dependent on a number of factors. Every group I have ever had has done this as well as every group I have ever seen (including B. Namansi Reef). That is why I keep my camera close by the tank. You never know when or why they will show their best colors, you just enjoy it when they do and hope that you can come close to accurately reproducing those colors on "film"

got them directly from africa


regarding the colouration, some of them are showing a good amount of yellow on their cheeks on the lower half of their bellies, and this is in a plain tank with no decoration. So I too do not agree that their colouration is pretty much brown, but I do admit their colouration is pretty drab as compared to many of the other variants, more like an acquired taste

those are Moshis, what did you expect? Even the so called 'small' Petros likes Trewas or Ikolas can easily reach 7-8 inch of they are kept in a proper tank.

I do regret that I could only afford a 4x2x2.5 for quarantine.. But there is no way they are going into the main tank with the others without being
1) conditioned to pellets and shrimp mix
2) treated for parasites

I made up for it by doing 70% water changes every 2 days, and I have overfiltred the tank.. As of today, I have not lost a single fish (after those that definately could not be salvaged upon arrival) so I think I'm doing a good job.. I believe crowding them like that actually helps with aggression. As of now they are still not taking pellets, but they are starting to go for the shrimp mix and freeze dried krill.. So I guess they will have to be in there for just awhile more..
