I added a few tangs lately -

Still have the longola and ephippium petros.  I just added tembwe texas petros.

I alos have congo orange o. ventralis and mpimbwe "silver streak" o. ventralis. 

I recently added lamp. moorii and tetracanthus.  Very cool.  I ordered 6 and got three pairs - more than I need.

juli regani - I love that fish.  I picked up 6 bruisers - hopefully a pair will develop.

Finally, i grabbed some white calvus and a few pairs of gold head compressiceps.  These guys used to come in at 3 and 4 " for female and males.  Now they come in at 1.75 and 3".  We may be overfishing some fish.

210 with 23 Burundi Fronts.  This will eventually be a colony of 10 or so.  Most are around 4" with one big male at almost 7" and some others between 5 and 6".

90 with 22 Tropheus Ilangi about 1.5"  I think I'm in trouble......these little guys are addicting.

In the 125 "Community"  various Tangs with some Malawian and Victorian,  and a few loaches.

J. Transcriptus 'Kisse Pembe'
A. Compressiceps Gold
Cyprichromis Leptosoma (I bought these at an auction as Cape Kachese but I'm not sure if that is correct. Pam Chin told me that only Jumbos have been found there. Out of the five I started with the two males are blue with white tips and a black notch on the dorsal. This led me to believe the were Utinta. Not several of the offspring have yellow tails. I bought these to fill the upper area of the tank and they have become family favorites. The breeding is amazing)

These are my first Tangs and my first serious Cichlids. I think I'm hooked!
