I received a shipment of 8 juvie L-134's today, they're around 2" long now. Same size the first group were when I received them last year, those make the new ones look really small. I figure when these new ones grow out I'll have a good breeding colony with stock from 2 different sources. Hopefully the older ones will start soon, they certainly look plump enough.
No fresh pics of the bigger ones, but here's 2 of the new little ones:
I think this one is working for eheim... The hoses will be moved shortly, just making sure the media is well established before I take down the hob filter and put a proper versa-top on the tank.

I discovered a very recent spawn of BN in the tank last night when I was getting it ready for the new arrivals today. Brown parents grown out from my brown trio that also produced some albino fry, and these fry were a mix of brown, albino, and calico. One or two look suspiciously like my super red fry when they're this same size, guess we'll see how they look as they grow a bit.
Bad pic, autofocus didn't quite catch the right aspect:

This one looks more like a calico, also found a few more of those in a 75 along with some rubt red peacock fry when I cleaned the tank:
