As some of you already know, I recently converted my aquarium over from goldfish to African Cichlids. After years of having big fat goldfish just cruising back and forth, I now have 11 little speed demons in there running around like children on a playground.
I put in 3-Electric Blue Johanni (Melanochromis johannii), 2- Likoma Island Elongatus (Pseudotropheus elongatus), 1- Cobalt Blue (Maylandia callainos), 1 Auratus (Melanochromis auratus), 1 Bumblebee (Pseudotropheus crabro), and 3- Yellow Tail Acei (Pseudotropheus sp. "Acei").
Here are a few pics of the tank and its new inhabitants
First up is a shot of the tank itself. Its a 55 gallon and I custom made the stand myself (being a cabinetmaker does have its advantages hehe.)
Here is Likoma Island Elongatus (male)
Here is the female Likoma Island Elongatus
These next 2 are the Yellow Tail Acei (first pic is male 2nd is female)
The next 2 are Electric Blue Johannii (I believe that both of these are males)
And finally here is the Cobalt Blue (male)
