Thanks! Still not sure on variety actually LOL have to really decide very soon. Should be clearing up in the next day or so, and seeded media is in there and spreading the goodness. I'm feeding it to keep it up.

I'm currently building a net top with window screen. I've learned my lesson before with jumpers!

Got 42 Ilangi Yellow Nkamba Bay from Greg today. They came in great shape, already showing some good color.

Heres a few quick snaps of them.

Congratulations! You have the seeds for a great looking tank. I'd be great to to see pics as the tank matures and the juvies grow up.

Thanks all, right now credit goes to Greg for shipping nice fish comfortably haha.

Photography is a side hobby of mine, loved doing it with discus. Tropheus are a whole different beast to photograph I learned that in a couple of minutes, looking forward to the challenge. I work off a Canon 5D Mk II camera body and these were taken with the 24-105mm Lens. I have a 100mm macro I'd love to try but these things are so dang fast and move around so much it will be a tough task.

I used my speedlite flash above the tank to light the photo, the only way to do it IMO!
