I snapped a quick pic of one of the new Fronts earlier when I was
doing a water change, as you can see they have settled in and are
colouring up nicely..

Really nice looking front Brookfish! Really nice! They look like they have settled in well. And the calvus is looking really good too!

There are no marks on your glass!!!! What are you talking about, LOL?!?!

You want to see mark you should see my tank, I've never had to clean the algae off my glass while I had the Farlowella and the bristlenose, but since the went to the happy hunting ground, (and I haven't got the right tube in the light) every single day I have to clean the glass!!!! So between the algae and the kids, it's green with thick smudgy fingerprints all over it, even though I cleaned it yesterday(blush)

Saying there are marks on your glass will not make us think your photos are imperfect! Great job :]

Im definitely leaning towards the Calvus now. That's a beautiful specimine you have there in the second picture! Now that I know about those fish, I'll be looking for them my next visit to my lfs! They're kind of on the expensive side though.....probably wont be stocking 30 of them right off the bat LOL

Nice burundi!

Burundi seem to be the only Fronts available in these parts,
but i'm still loving them.
Thanks for all the comments guys!!

I have kept a couple of cichlids, but the ones I like don't appreciate my nasty water conditions out of my tap. I became exasperated with an RO unit I could not operate or understand, so I have just given it away. I have decided to keep hardier ones if at all.

I do love em though and appreciate other peoples photographs and successes. SO KEEP POSTING LOL:hmm3grin2orange:
