Blue and white actually.

I have a colony of Frontosa. Sweet fish

All the fish in my 125 are from Lake Tanganyika, looks like you mixed them up..

Yea :P the loaches/sharks aren't African, and the jewels mess up the Malawi bit, too. Frontosa's are definitely great fish, though. If only I had the money to set up an African tank...
