new pics-the large female auratus passed away of bloat awhile back, and sadly my favorite fish the demasoni got bloat as well...he always hid so it wasn't unusual to not see him but he must have been hoarding food (purely algae based) as he passed quickly.





To augment the tank I added three maylandia crabro “bumblebee cichlid” and one labidochromis textilis (often called exasperatus but this is the incorrect name)...the textilis is very camera shy.

Great pictures! I have one just like in the first picture. He's the smallest fish in my tank (though some of my Calvus are a close tie) and I named him penut hehe.
