no, the blue fish is a blue ahli. but i have several empressi empresses?

i believe 2-3 males. hoping they get freaky with the females. i also have an electra couple that really dont care about eachother but the male is a new addition.

That's a nice electric blue! Kinda makes me miss mine.. He was the sole victim of a tank-wide ick infection (it actually wasn't the ick that got him, it was a secondary fungal infection).

Oh and sorry for derailing your thread so much with my avatar lol!

its not a derailment. just a brake from sw. all good by me.

thats a beautiful fish. there is one like it at the lfs. i want him bad. but we are trying to get more red in the tank.

i have a ob that is holding right now and its her second time. the mr. is a bicolor blue. in our little 25? gallon tank is her first 30 ish baby brood. i really dont know what we are going to do with them. sweety pie has some friends that have mentioned getting fish tanks. here's hoping.

we may have to loose a fish back to the store. we cant keep having hybrids, few people want them and he wont leave her alone like you said carey.

Man do I feel you on that. It could be really tough. I know there's some red Mbuna, but as far as haps and peacocks, it's really tough to find any. Most of what they call "red" is actually orange lol.

Case in point: the Ruby Red Peacock. I LOVE mine. But I don't think he's all that red, and I've never seen one that's truly red. And since everyone loves pictures, here you go lol

T5 is the diameter of the bulb - from my understanding you can actually have a PC-T5

T5ho is more efficient, you can put individual reflectors, and you can cram more bulbs in the same space as pc. I would go with t5ho for corals, but pc is good for fowlr.
