I have been looking for baby ilangi for months! I need them! I want a group of 6. Do you know where i can get some? do you have any? I have kept and bred several different variations of moorii, including chipimbi, polli, yellow kiesers, double cherry spots, and kachese. I will take very good care of them. I know what I'm doing.

    You can find them at big aquarium stores at relatively low prices.

I have the black variety of tropheus and they are really fun to watch swim and they even seem to play tag. Their swimming is odd, much like the fins of a dolphin they rise and fall. They are fast swimmers and sometimes can stir up the tank when cruising!
They are good parents, but caution is advised because the brooding females sometimes get harrassed. Other than that I find them peaceful and I keep them with other cichlids from Tanganika and Malowi. I feed mine normal flake food and add veggie flake food. I haven't had one bloat yet. My tank has an UG filter with a power flow in one tube. I siphon the gravel once a week which gives them a 25% water change which often seems to encourage them to spawn.
