Approaching adulthood

26 01 2010

One of my juvenile Melanochromis dialeptos is changing from the juvenile colours seen here to his adult male colouration (which is midnight blue). He’s not quite there yet, and is currently a rather unattractive shade of brown:

My Pseudotropheus sp “Ndumbi Gold” are finally showing their adult colours. Out of my initial group of 11, 3 went blue quite quickly and began to bicker over who was top fish. I was able to find homes for 2 of them leaving me with the most dominant. I still have at least 3 other males in the group but they aren’t yet prepared to challenge the dominant male for his place and aren’t really a problem.
