    I was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to adopt 3 Neolamprologus sexfasciatus from Jared a few weeks ago - :thumb: Jared! They're in good hands and are enjoying their stay...

    They're really awesome looking fish when they're coloured up and even though they're pretty small in comparison to some of my Neo. tretrocephalus' they manage to hold their ground.

    Two of them are constantly flaring up at one another in a way that only Neolamp's can - the way they expand their gill flaps to intimidate one another is impressive - I'm still trying to pull off a good shot of this to post.

    Thnx Abraham,

    They're a nice to watch when they show aggression to one another.

    Thnx R.C. Me 2...

    Very nice photos Pedro. I still like the blue shimmer on the golden Sexies. They have still got a lot of growing to do for you.
