Default Tropheus Kabimba Canary Cheek

I finally got my colony up to 20. Thanks for the healthy and beautiful fish Greg! So I bought a separate 125 for these and spent all day Saturday painting, cleaning, and filling with water. I cleaned old media and traded out about 75% of my established bio balls from my Red Kachese tank and put it in "new" sump. I bought a used set up but can never trust others media, so I cleaned all of it lol. Well I let it run for two days and felt comfortable. I have never owned a test strip before and it's been working thus far. I added the 3m:9f I had already on Monday. Tuesday I got the other 8 from Greg (2m:6f) and after acclimating for about an hour, in they went. Here's a video of them the first few hours in the tank.

There's some shaking going on but these fish aren't in breeding condition. At least not the new ones. Right now I am treating with Epsom salt and metro because two of the new ones weren't eating. Before I left for work I fed metro flakes and one of the stubborn ones finally ate some so it's good she got to ingest it. Working on the other one. Won't be a problem at all. After they all eat, I will starve for a week to get them acclimated to eating pellets. Two weeks after they start eating pellets, a few females should be ready to breed. I'll post updates.

I have eshopps 150 with Mag 9.5, Eheim 2217, and Aqua Clear 110. Nothing special. Also have a Koralia 4. I'm not trying to over filter this tank like my other. It's in my bedroom and I don't need all the noise from the overflow.
