They are in a temporary tank until their 180g is finished. The alpha is around 13-14".

Is the alpha male a wild specimen? It has much deeper coloration.

They are all wild. Many times males (especially the alpha) tend to turn considerably darker then the rest of the group. My kitumba male is almost black, I'll see if I can find any pics.

Just love the big impressive alpha !
They only get better as they grow.
Got several males in my own wc group and they still get along even when females are dropping tubes. Sure hope it will stay that wat as they get older.

Those look great! The black sand really makes their sharp white bars pop.
