Default Some Wild Caught Tropheus...

Hope everyone is doing well!

Just wanted to share some Wild Caught Tropheus that I got from Greg.

All are doing well and are active. Should be separating them soon to encourage spawning after I beef them back up a bit.

It's a 110g 4' x 2'. LOVE this size.

Tropheus are amazing it them! If you are going to get a 4ft tank for a Colony of Tropheus, make it one of these for Sure! Slap an FX5 (or comparable) on it and you're good to go!

The last 2 Pembas Left (both female) and 6 Nkonde (3 pairs) are new and the last surviving trio of my Kasanga (old).

20-30 is perfect. The Extra 35 gallons above and beyond that of a 75g really makes a difference.
