I have a Polypterus senegalus in there. His name is scar. He only has one eye because I had him in a growout tank when I first got him. I had a couple of 1.5" Pseudotropheus saluosi males that turned...

They have some nice color. Can't wait to see then when you get the camera troubles worked out (or you bribe them to sit still out in the open for longer than two seconds). I know how that goes.
