Multis !!!!!

Alright, so thanks to the f/s ad that Kristin (JustOneMore20) had on here a while back, I have been wanting multis ever since. I havent been able to find them anywhere around here for less than $30 and I refuse to pay that much for fish. Finally found some on craigslist, along with an AC20, 10g tank, black sand, lots of shells, light, heater, and a few other things. Best part is, im getting it all for $40! The fish alone are worth twice that much. Here are two pictures from the ad, ill have them tomorrow night so i can take some better pics of them set up here.

Haha, thanks Kristin, if you hadnt sold yours, i probably would have never known about them. Now, I do have a couple questions about them. I know with my mbuna, and the convicts i had before, i was unable to keep any plants in the tank because they either ate them, or just plain destroyed them. Are multis plant safe or will it be another rock only tank (with shells of course)?

I got my multis!!! Theyre acclimating now. I had to clean the tank big time, it was a mess. the guy knew what he was doing, just didnt have the time to clean them like he should. Anyways, a few more pwc's should get all the mess out, i got the worst part. Im simply amazed at how much flow the ac20 is putting out. Now i completely understand why everybody loves them so much. Ive got a billion shells and there are 8 adults and too many fry to count. Ill probably sell off some of the fry once they get a little bigger. there are two breeding colonies. 4 on one side of the tank, 4 on the other. kinda neat. pics will be posted soon

I saw that post a long time ago by JustOneMore20 and it also inspired me to get a little group of multies. They really are cool little fish and have so much personality once they stop being super nervous.
It was so sad when I first got them. I went to this fish store that was reputed to be really amazing, but when I said I wanted two boys and two girs he gave me two female multies and two juvenile fairy cichlids, woops. That didn't work very well for the day that I had the fairy cichlids. I eventually went back and got two more multies and they turned out to be a boy and a girl, so that made a nice little harem in my tank.
