Default My Duboisi "Halembe" with Moorii "Illangi"

Here's a short video of my 110 gallon which houses about 25 F1 duboisi "Halembe" and 15 domestic Moorii "Illangi".

Hoping to move the Illangi to their own tank this fall. They are trying to breed but the dubs won't allow them to.

These fish are all about 4 years old. The dubs are breeding constantly but I have to strip to have anything survive.

Thanks guys. I'm not doing the illangi any justice as they mostly just blend in with the dubs. The males show flashes of color but get driven out of the pots by the dub males.

I'm excited to see how the illangi color up once in their own tank. I was told they came from a colony brought in during the early 90's. I have no idea what generation they are but do think they're the real deal.

Very Nice! Looking forward to seeing them in their won tank.

Clean tank walls, White substrate, bright lighting and pristine water and you should see some amazing colors from them!

Agreed. They are in a pretty dark environment. I do allow green algae to grow on everything except the front glass. Water parameters are great since I've moved and put them on well water; much harder. I moved my small WC group of moops as well and had all 8 of my females holding at once. I let them spit in the tank and have about 30 fry growing out with the parents. Tried to take a vid but quality was too low to post.

Has anyone painted their background white? If that's a bad option I think I'll go with baby blue.

Oh Nice! Yeah that's interesting. I wonder why people say that RR don't spawn as much as other Moorii.

I'm not sure about the white. I've seen Neutral colors that look good. But yes a Baby or royal blue would look great!

I've been thinking about a light greenish blue color more recently...
