I found your thread regarding identification of your Livingstonii and thought I would share a couple pics of mine. He just really started to dawn his blue a couple of weeks ago.

mcass he is gorgeous!! i actually rehomed my male living & my male auratas.. i'm trying to achieve my 3-1 female-male ratio

isnt that how the livingstonii look when they are trying to breed? or is that just their maturity coloring? i thoughtttt breeding

i think i'm just gonna grab a few more mbuna females to achieve my propper ratio, UNLESS i can find a colorful female peacock/hap that i can get...?

CT pet stores stiiink in my area so its either $40 shipping from a website or driving almost to the next state

mouthy you under estimate your protege' hahaha

but i do call w/ the stores further out and they normally dont have anything i would be looking for or i just go cuz my boys are goin.. with the requesting fish, i have from my petland and they havent come through.. the only other i could really request from is the one where the owner doesnt care and i'd rather not even ask him lol

i think i posted somewhere else that my petland lady diiiiid say again that she was gonna try to find me some pretty peacocks or mbuna females on wednesday but who knows lol

i just grabbed 3 new 1.5-2inchers tonight.. theyre tiny but i'm hoping they survive & i got all 3 for $15 so i cant complain lol

got a:
female kenyi w/ amazing striping
HOPEFULLY female bumblebee cichlid
& one more i already forgot the name of LOL

the last 2 pics are my already unknown haha the dude told me its male species turns blue & this one who is 'likely' female will stay yellow w/ the white spread throughout .. anybody?? i know its not much to go on but take a peek

anyway, i'm happy!! but again, i just hope they survive -_-
