Neat video. I have never seen someone have so many Red's in one tank.

In the beginning of the video there is a fish (by the water mark on the tank) that looks like it is popping it's jaw. Is this a common trait for Petrochromis. I ask because I have seen the dominant male in my tank do this.

Cool video, thanks for posting.

yep, it's Andreas' tank. He is from one of the german troph forums. He has a group of 14/16 Reds in the tank.

Thanks!

Does it signify anything special?
Just trying to understand their behavior. They are amazing to watch (now that they are starting to get used to me).
