Default My new F1 Moba fry. Thanks Ron.

Just put them in an hour ago. They are scared but I am sure they will come out soon. I replaced my burundi and kitumba fry with these.

switched out burundi:

turtle is tame. he doesn't bother fish at all and eats out of my hand. i've had him for a year with no issues. my burundi fry were never scared of him. in fact, they would even steal food out of his mouth.

That's pretty cool with the turtle. I hope he doesn't change his mind though. I love your tank as well.

Thanks! This turtle won't grow to be huge. I've seen tanks with fronts and turtles and they do well together.

That does look pretty cool but those fronts aren't quite as "bite size" as yours. I hope your fronts grow fast. lol Really sweat video!

The coloring on those fry is really nice. They will do well in your tank. Keep up with your water changes and feeding them good foods. I like using the cichlid buffer recipe as well. When I do my 50% weekly wc in my 180g tank, I add 1/2 cup of baking soda, 1/2 cup of Instant Ocean and 2/3 cup of Epsom salt. I add them to a pitcher and fill with tap water. The mixture will fizz up. Once my tank is filled with the new water I add the recipe directly to the tank. I can add it right next to my tumbler with eggs or DIY floating nurseries filled with baby fry without a problem.

Their momma, my wc black moba momma is getting ready to spawn again! She is a superstar.
