Thanks Marcel. That's what I needed to know. I'm not using brackish, I just figured anything that could handle that could take hard, alkaline water.
Brichardi, for those who aren't familiar with them, are a Lake Tanganyika cichlid and have an interesting reproductive pattern. A pair will claim a small patch of rock for a territory, and while not really agressive towards other fish, will drive other fish from their turf. The first spawn is usually pretty small, but when the fry mature, they aren't driven off. Instead they stay and help raise/guard larger, subsequent spawns. The parents will move out a little to expand the territory. With each batch, the parents expand the territory, the larger siblings move outward guarding an inner rim, and the youngest stay with the eggs.
They're not a flashy fish, but they are somewhat elegant in appearance. They're an old favorite of mine and I've missed having them around the last few years. Since I've added some tanks back to my collection, it was time to bring some back home. Also, they're a lot easier on plants than many cichlids.
