Hello Marcin,

you can try sending a PM to the photographers, asking if you can use their photos.

Anyway, you can use mine for the article, but no the not ones posted in here as they are of a too low resolution to be printed - send me a PM with your email address instead, and I'll send some far better photos :)

By the way, I'll have an article in the next "Tanganika Magazyn" as well :wink:

All the best, Thomas

I feed them microworm, baby brine shrimp, freeze-dried cyclop-eeze, golden pearl, crush NLS grow and crush spirulina flake. I feed them often but in small quantities!

Thanks!

Hi there,

The photos are beautiful. I saw last week three x. f. from Isanga in the tank of my friend. They are just fantastic. A yellow dorsal and the most exciting part is the side of the body. There's a yellow long patch from behind the gill to the tail. I just love them.

I've got a problem. I have a 7 group of X. f. Kekese. They are about 6-7 cms. There's a pair which separated and rules the whole 430 litre tank (7 C. leptosoma speckleback Moba are even in the acquarium). The situation lasts since about a month and they don't spawn, they don't do anything but chase all the other fish (not only other flavipinnis but even the Cyprichromis ones). There are some rocks and plants in the aquarium to divide it into lots of free places of sand.

Today I had enough and took out the pair and put them into a little tank which they are alone in. I would like you to give me advice what to do. Can anybody write me about these fish's behaviour, handling? I would be really grateful.

Thanks a lot.

Zoli

Whats the size of the little tank? You should only keep the pair in the 430 l. if you want them to breed on a regular basis. I've try to keep my pair with leptosoma Utinta and they stop breeding, they're now with Paracyprichromis Nigripinnis and start back breeding. But if I could have enough place I will give them a tank on their own!

Now the pair is in a 80l, but there's no other fish in the tank. The day before yesterday I saw them breeding. Yesterday night I saw 4 eggs on the sand. Today nothing. They ate them or took back in the mouth...

Hello,

Now the pair is in a 450l aquarium. They bred three times since they are there, but none of them was successful. Does anybody know, why? There are 8 Enantiopus Kilesa and 11 Cyprichromis leptosoma Malasa in the aquarium.

Thanks,

Zoli
