Those are some nice young congos Feed them up on some live food and you'll have stunners in no time.

Also great photography skills, I have a wicked time trying to capture my congos.

Nice pics. Here's one I took with my 60D a while back. Having a fast lens or using flash above tank and/or extra light helps:

Beautiful fish! Lovely images as well. I can't wait till my guy matures. He was less than an inch a couple of months ago when I picked him up.

I would be feeding him live now except the local LFS are so lame they do not sell brine shrimp eggs. I am going to have to order online.
