Nice to see they're growing so well and loo great. Thanks for sharing the pics and glad you're liking them. We're getting ready to post some males for sale (male heavy species)............

Been a while since I shared some pics of these guys...I still think I have two males and one female as I have two bigger fish that at times both display and one much smaller fish that doesn't seem as colorful.  The dominant male continues to display in the tank to both of the other fish...waiting to see if any of his work will bring about a spawn...none yet.

I have a new macro lens that I took these shots with...they came out a little blurry because of the action of the fish but I'm liking the detail the lens gives
