-- On second thought, maybe they are not larger. But there is definitely something that draws attention to the eyes more.

Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things. Philippians 4:8

-- Beautiful photos as always, Russ. It seems, and tell me if you agree, that this variety has larger eyes in proportion to their bodies when compared to other variants.

A recent batch of F1 fry from Lil Blue in the tumbler prior to being moved to a floating nursery in a 10-gallon nursery tank.

Here are a few images of the females.

This is “Lil Blue” she is a good mom and currently has some F1 fry (fathered by Nyatzi) in a floating nursery.


Lil Blue is on the right in this next image


These next two images are of "Annie" another female. In the second image, she is tumbling eggs.

These next images are of my alpha male, Nyatzi. He is approximately 10-11 inches in length (25.4 to 27.94 cm) long.

I have wanted to get some updated pics of Mikula Group Nyatzi for quite some time. Lately, I have been spending a lot of time in front of this tank, with camera in hand, attempting to, finally, create an updated thread (using the remotely triggered overhead flash). I’m done! Here it is…. Mikula Group Nyatzi is a wild caught group of Cyphotilapia gibberosa - Zaire Blue Mikula (2m/5f) that I keep in a 125-gallon tank (473.18 liters). Nyatzi is the alpha male of this tank. Common questions are, “what are those rocks/boulders?” and “what kind of lighting do you use?” The answers are: are Arkansas Field Stone and all the light in these photos comes from the flash.

These first couple images are the left and right sides of this tank (left then right)
