WOW!? No Offense to either of you, but are you sure that's a RR?

Maybe a Brichardi?

I received them wc from Greg I can't imagine it being a brichardi. The pic may not do it justice. In person you can see the redish blaze in the top and anal fin. I will try and upload another pic if she would stop movin to fast.

Not sure on nitrates honestly. I've moved twice in the last 45 days so these guys are stressed I'm sure. I was surprised to see them breeding really. I will try and find my fish stuff I'm still unpacking boxes.

Here is a video of the group.

Photobucket kind of changed the quality of the video sorry. I will try an upload to YouTube for a better quality.

Sure looks like a female, generally Tropheus females flag their colors down, until they feel secure enough (I guess individual preference)

I have a female wc bulu point with nice large spots that showed yellowish red or no color at all for almost a year. Initially i was upset with the quality, but realized that the fish was beautiful regardless of not being what we consider text book. Well lo and behold more than a year later her spots are now bright red most of time. So it is a possibility that her colors are subdued for some reason or she just might not be the most color fish.
