My Lake Victorians

I am posting these to try and spur interest in cichlids from the "other" lake. Doesn't seem to be many people keeping them here, I think they are some nice looking fish and would like to get some more people to discuss em.

These are by no means show quality fish, and please don't bash me on the algae covered plants. This tank is about the fish, I am not sweating the algae anywhere but on the glass...

The Rock Kribs (Mwanza Gulf) are past juvie stage, around three inches, and the Astatotilapia Lat. are currently juveniles, about and inch and a half to two inches... the little male only colors up when the Rock Krib big boy is not in attack mode.

Fish look great. The Lake Victorian cichlids remind me alot of the apistos and south american cichlids.

Thats what I thought. They remind me of smaller, compact South Americans with much crazier colors, a little bigger than apistos. They are super easy to care for too like the S. Americans.

Here are a couple more. I currently have two female Rock Kribs holding.

Very nice pictures - I like the last one! Are they as aggressive as the Malawi cichlids?
