Thanks, yes one of my favorite things about them is the big powerful tail, especially on the males.

Thanks, yes they are a breeding pair. Those are leftover fry that learned to hide in the rockwork when they see the net lol. They are in a 125 gallon.

I also two 75 gallon tanks with fry from them, gonna grow out two more pairs.

Hard to get good pictures of the fry they don't like the camera light.

He's 14 inches

this little guy is starting to take over one of the grow out tanks and really asserting his dominance. He is a very beautiful well built little male.

second tank is heating up too.

these two are at it again

my white male turned on the second female and has spawned again with the remaining female. As of today all four of my Haitian cichlid pairs have fry or wigglers.
