Just recently moved my family and fish from California. I keep Malawi cichlids, and would like to get into salt one day. Hoping to meet fellow hobbyists :D

I edited your post for you. You just need to hit the Img button, then put the your image link in between Img tags. Edit your post to see what the code looks like.

Nice fish! Do you have any fry from that Chilumba male?

Your fish get an A+ from me. I can't say I've seen Cynotilapia zebroides, Chewere before, which is pretty damn cool. I thought I had kept most of those, but apparently not all of them!

What do you have fry from? I've just expanded my fish room and have some open space.

Here's one of mine I'm digging a lot. Labeotropheus trewavasae, Chilumba. The oh-so-rare red african cichlid.

Thank you so much! The Chewere are probably my favorite right now. I had to downsize a lot before my drive from California so currently i only have some salousi, cobue, and blue lip fry.

Awesome looking Trewavasae! Any fry? Im a big fan of Labeotropheus! Hoping to aquire some Fuelleborni Katale here soon :)

Beautiful fish. Clearly you know what you are doing.
Also keep blue lips. Males are quite territorial for monochromatic mbuna.
