Just read your entire thread. Very nice! You have done an incredible job, great craftsmenship, well thought out and ingenious I agree with some others that this is better designed than fish stores I've been in! I love the stain you went with. Great plan for the water changes. I hope this will accomplish for you exactly what you want...to retire from your main job. It will be sweet if it pays for itself quickly. 21K+ is a lot!

Congratulations and the great success to ya! I will have to look you up when we make our big move to Florida in a few years to order some fish! We travel to MS and head down to New Orleans every summer (visiting family) If we are ever in the area, I would love to see this place in person! How much is the admission charge again? LOL!

Great Thread!

Great Thread!
Why would anyone in their right mind move to Florida?

Another update. Female anchor island and female flavus mbuna released babies today. So now i have 2 groups of anchor island totaling 40 babies. Flavus had about 15 or so from what i can see. Pair of blue diamond discus laid eggs yesterday as well but they are young so who knows.

Honestly, I don't want to! I am a mountain girl and love snow! Not much snow in Florida We vacation to Florida every summer and have a blast, but I am totally ready to get back after 5 weeks. We are moving to Kissimmee.

Anyway...sorry for being waaaaaay off topic with this post OP!

thank you for the kind words sspark & flash

i got him from the pot luck "assorted africans" tank at the LFS. the majority of victorian sp. in my area are either zebra obliques or mislabeled as those.

he was a pale silvery looking thing when i first got him and one of the first cichlids in my tank...the most color he showed was a faint blush of yellow, i guess thats what made me feel he was different.

i'm still new to cichlids, so it made me very happy to see him color up. i know he looks big in the pic but he's still very small (2"). he's a tough fish, i just hope to see him grow to his full potential
