The kiku's seem to really enjoy the extra space upgraded from 55 - 120 gal.
They are finally starting to show more of their adult reddish colouring.

Kiku's are Tropheus so the bare minimum tank recomended for them is a 4t 55 gal. Like most tropheus they are aggressive towards each other. That's why I upgraded from a 55 to a 120(plus I can get more of them:ezpi_wink1: )

Look at how many are from the Tropheus Moorii group. Nice pic of your kind there, too.

I really have to watch out what other type of tropheus if any, that I add to this group. Most of the tropheus moorii or any of the tropheus that have a lot of red in them will cross breed in a minute if allowed and I don't want that. I may not be able to find any more of these guys. So if I want to add more it might have to be something like these

Dad gum it sailor, you're going to get me into Tangs one way or another, aren't you? And since I already have kiddie pools full of algae covered stones, and liquid concrete coming out of my taps . . . .
I'm too polite to curse, Sailor, but if you keep posting those Tropheus shots . . .
