I have a group of 11 and they are really starting to show age differences. A group of 4 or 6 (I cannot count them bc they move too fast and hide) are now obviously older than the others. Just wondering how long it takes for them to mature. I got them last week and the oldest ones barely had the reddish hue on their gill covers. Now they're getting an obvious golden-pinkish hue all over. But the littlest ones are still grayish. Here is one from today versus almost the whole group last week. Sorry about cell phone pics. My regular camera has trouble focusing with the extreme closeups. (Any photography tips welcome - I have a Nikon Coolpix B500). They're getting a little bolder when I sit farther away from them. Exploring more of tank, chasing each other. I can't wait until I can move them out of quarantine!
My favorite part of the hobby is raising up my baby fish. What's everyone else breeding / growing out. Here's some of my little guys right now, let's see yours. Pictured are Pseudotropheus Acei and Saulosi and my Neolamprologus Multifasciatus. I have Electric Yellows, Snow Whites and Sulferheads coming soon.
