My juvenile Neolamprologus.boulenjeri group. These are just one of many shell dwelling species of cichlid from Lake Tanganyika.
Group currently ranges from 1"-1.25". At max size males will measure 2.5" whilst females will sit slightly under at 2".


Took these shots during a water change in their new tank.

Some pics of my dominant female and 2 males, after the water change.

Neolamprologus.boulenjeri group in their old setup. Can see a male developing his colours in the 3rd picture. Can't wait until they fully develope their adult colours! The dorsal, anal, and caudal fin will be golden yellow, the black splotches on their flanks with grow larger and bolder, gold yellow blush will develope on their faces as well as on the ridges of their eyes, and they'll have stunning blue iridescent facial markings.
