Acei, from little to huge!

I have some more video's to share.

The first one is tiny Acei, newly released: (little orange ones are newly released Red Zebras)
YouTube - Acei Fry New

This one is a couple of them 3 months later. They are about an inch now and already have attitude
YouTube - AceiKids

This is their 6.5 inch Papa. Also in this vid are his ladies. All my adult Acei are at least 6".
YouTube - AceiMaleBest

Here is a tank shot. Their sizes range from 4" to 6.5".
African Mbuna featured:
Red Zebra, Yellow Labs, Acei. Perlmutts and Hongi.
The black fish with red fins is a 6" Rainbow Shark.
YouTube - Mbuna Tank

Thanks people!

Spoon, I bet you can't wait till yours get that big, huh? They are so awesome now that they are big!

Here is a closer view of the tank. The whitish fish are my Perlmutts. They are really getting pretty!

LOL guys! I feed mine New Life Spectrum pellets. I feed my fry that too when they get used to eating. For the fry I put some pellets in a coffee grinder and grind it up to almost powder. Mine didn't seem to grow at all either and then I started using NLS and they exploded!

The one that surprised me was the male Acei. I bought him at about 4" and he seemed to grow 2.5" in a month! He was smaller than the girls in the begining and now is the biggest fish in the tank!

I have had all my big fish (except the male Acei) since June of last year, so it does take a bit for them to grow. The medium sized ones that are around 4" I have had for between 4 and 6 months. What gets people is not just their length, but how big and husky they are compared to most aquarium fish. That is why a 30 gallon is just not big enough for Mbuna in the long run. If you look at the first video, a 30 gallon would be about half as long as that tank. Can you imagine those big husky guys in a tank half that size??

Had to delete the one that they are nipping at my fingers. Because I named the file finger nipping all these X-rated videos were associated with it! Sheez! I renamed the file and uploaded it again.
Here it is without the x-rated crap. I love at the end how the Acei nibbles at me then burbs a big air bubble LOL
