They are showing some nice yellows... They do seem pretty aggressive, just like my Illangi. Are the cyps a good dither fish? I'm putting my 15 Illangi into they're own 70 gallon soon and hoping to keep aggression down that way.

Thank you Danny, I received these from an importer who says they are a mix of various filial generations, possible F1's and F3/F4s.

Ad Konings says Ilangi are a hybrid of a Moori and a Sp. Red, but when the Ilangi were overfished, the Sp Red moved in, producing the more red/orange wild Ilangi's yet those wilds produced fry that grew up to be yellow. It seems the tank raised from those fish stayed quite yellow too Very happy with this group!

Thank you Puffer, and I'm rooting for your new group!

Flyn, let's keep comparing notes....I read your comment on moving the Ilangi in with Dubs, let me know how they do now that they are used to each other and should do well on their own again. I've had these for around 2 months. I had to remove the dom male for 2 weeks because he was beating the rest of them down. I added décor, put him back, now all is well.

2 females were holding, but as I stripped and put the 10 eggs into a DIY tumbler, they spilled out and were eaten....I was so mad! I bought a Cobalt tumbler in case I strip again. They are big enough though, to where letting them spit in-tank may work too.

Nice looking group although they are not f0 or f1, but the colours are comparable.

Thank you CCT, yes as I look at WC Ilangi YouTube's, I note that these are comparable. One female now into her 2nd week holding, happy for that.

I put my illangi in with my dubs years ago. Aggression is fine but breeding is minimal as the dubs are dominant and it's a 4 foot tank. They are going into their own 70 gallon once I move yet again. I'm still wondering if cyps are a good dither fish as I've never had them.

Yes, Cyps seem to make Tropheus a little more calm! They eat the Dainichi FX just fine, and a little pinch of frozen Mysis twice a week. Hoping your move is smooth!

I finally moved them into my new place yesterday. 14 adult Illangi, 5 juvie Illangi, and 7 juvie duboisi "Halembe". I'll probably throw in another 8-10 dubs to hopefully lower aggression.

A little worried as they've never been in their own tank since being an inch long.
