I had 4 duboise juvies years ago, before the internet and forums were available for info. As time passed 4 became 3, then 2, finally there was only one left. Looking back, I'm somewhat surprised that even the one survived to be traded off eventually. I didn't know they were veggie eaters, they were all raised on regular flakes. It wasn't the diet that did them in though, simply not enough of them.

So I guess I had better get a few more. How many is enough?

The minimum number generally recommended is 10, more is better.

I have 12 Tropheus Morii Kiku's and am hoping to get another 10 -12 more to add to the colony.

Pics of the new fish Sailor are a must once you get them into the tank with the others.

Sailor, those are a close second for me in my choice of Trophs. The orange flames are beautiful, but I sill don't think they hold a candle (pun intended) to the Lunangwa.

Are you having any luck tracking any Lunangwa down?

I have a couple wild caught colonies

Tropheus Duboisi Maswa
Tropheus sp. Red Moliro

and I am looking into getting some more varients, especially wild caughts as soon as I settle in Montreal this September.
