Malawi Blue Dolphins - Cyrtocara moorii

Picked up these guys today. After selling off my two emperor cichlids the tank seemed a little empty.

Thanks, I was REALLY stressed about the Emperors. I'm hoping to get some pics from the person that gave them the new home. These BDs are far more calm than I thought they would be. Everyone in the tank is getting along just great so far.

Anyone ever have these guys kill other fish on a daily basis? These are the only recent major change to the tank and suddenly I'm finding a dead fish every day. One of these has been killed as well.

Either the dolphins are the culprit or something has become super aggressive after removing the big emperors. I'm stumped. I never see it happen, usually I find a new dead fish in the morning and it is everything from small 2" to some of my larger 5-6" fish getting murdered.
