Lamprologus Meleagris (pearlie occelatus) - YouTube
Not sure if I have three males vying for dominance or if there's a female in the mix. The smaller one (I'll call him #3) is actually younger from a different store so size can't be a determination.
The one that swims to the top of the tank (#2) in the video has been living up there for at least a month. No shell. Not sure why he was down at the big shell. The smallest one also usually hangs out at the very top level of rock. Not sure why he was down here either, but earlier he was hiding in the sand around the big shell. The seemingly more dominant one (#1) usually lives at the bottom, but not over here by the big shell. Not sure what he's doing over here either.

#2: Usually black checkered/striped with more pearls; blue eyelids; light pectoral fins; sometimes changes to pale coloring all over; 1.25"
