Default F1 Tropheus Moori Ndole Bay Red

Here is a video i took last night about an hour after a water change. Wanted to take it right after the water change while they were super bright red, but the water was still a little cloudy. There are still lots of the substrate particles floating but the water is much clearer. Should have just waited until today for the water to be pristine but oh well. Also choose to view it in HD if possible.
Inhabitants include 8 WC Cyp. Jumbo Kigoma, 2 f1 Orange Comps, and 1 f1 Gold head Muzi Comp. in a 75g.

Thanks, they are all are around 2.5-3". I have had them since October 2013, so about 9 months now. I was about to sell them once, but glad I kept them. I just moved them about two weeks ago into the 75 froma 135. They seem to be adjusting well. They have a brilliant red on them when they are all fully colored up and school together. Of course the two dominant males stay dark.

Yeah I agree, thanks. This is my first go with Cyps and I'm hooked. All 4 females have spawned and I have 35-45 fry growing out. Also had one Ndole spawn with 3 fry growing out with the Cyp fry. I plan to move the Cyps to a 180 with my Troph Bulu Point and increase the group. I would prefer more wild caught, but If I cant locate any I will add some of the f1s to the group.

There should be about 23-24. When I recently moved them into the 75g, I think they were 25. One just died this week. It was a small one that seemed to be wasting away and barely eating for a few months now. I always noticed it was the runt of the group, but when I moved them to the 75 I noticed it would spit all food except mysis shrimp.

Thanks buddy! The rock is Basalt rock. Came across it at my local stone store. I was trying to find some rocks to match the bg and came across these. They came in 11- 13 in. pieces. I dropped them on the concrete wrapped in a plastic bag to break them in half. They were more expensive then what I'm use to paying for rocks, but I like them. Cool thing I learned is they are formed like that in nature and help raise & stabilize your ph.
