Hello everyone!

My name is Nardo, I live in the south of France and I registered on this forum to learn more about these beautiful fish are cichlids of Lake Malawi !

I have a 90 gallon tank with :
  • 1/1 Pseudotropheus saulosi Taiwan reef
  • 1/2 Pseudotropheus cyaneorhabdos Maingano
  • 1/1 Labidochromis joanjohnsonae Likoma Island
  • 1/2 Labidochromis caeruleus Lion's Cove
  • 1/1 Metriaclima estherae "big blotch" Minos reef
  • 1/2 Cynotilapia zebroides Cobue

Thank you Lisa! :)

Some question about my female Saulosi :

And now, the same fish: (this female has already incubated)

Colors are strange right?
Another question: the number of vertical bars on males seems to vary (5, 7...) is it normal ? Image

That is odd. Seems she's showing the start of male characteristics. I wouldn't say she's becoming male though. I've never seen a saulosi female do that before. Maybe others have experience with that??
