He colours up in the evening but he does go to bed at 10 ? I have gone to the tank at night and he's been missing and I have pulled the tank apart to find him sleeping....... mad. I have young growing on but they are so slow I would love more but I can't get them at the mo. I was hoping more would help to keep him coloured as I only have a pair and he is massive!

Just lost my WC Cyno. 'Luwino' male, and I agree that the female is one of the best colored of them all. She hasn't been all black, but she is still in mourning!
congrats on the spawn, slower they grow the better, I say. :good:
Awesome blaze on that male.
Mbuna, they're not just for breakfast anymore.

Importer has more, but fear all the good ones are gone by now. Might trade some Yellow Lab fry to my LFS and ask them to get one through Leif in Miami, he has a minimum $500 order that I cannot do myself.

I had a trio of minos reef but moved them on as the male was causing issues with my demasoni. I even tried a trio in a two foot tank and the females tore each other apart. Lovely fish indeed
