Shame on me, I have been treating my orange fin comps like the Rodney Dangerfield of my fish room. I probably have about 100 to 150 F1 Altolamprologus compressiceps (Chaitika orange fin) fry in one of my 55 gallon tanks. I decided to pull out a group of the larger ones (which are probably close to 2") and put them in a 10 gallon photography tank. They really are a great looking fish (or so I think 8) ). I guess, when they get to 2" I should probably stop calling them "fry" and start calling them "juvies." In any event, here are a few pics of them in the 10 gallon tank.

These two dudes where battling for the shell near the front of the tank which allowed me to get some nice shots of the battle...
Which is, precisely, why I placed that shell near the front of the tank :lol:
Altolamps are a very fun species to watch while they jockey for dominance.

I love the "namesake" orange fin

Take care,

This bad little dude was from one of my first ever orange fin comp fry batches a few years ago. I kept him out of hundreds to go in a front tank one day. After a few years, that day arrived. He's got some serious attitude which may end up getting him in trouble with my alpha male gibberosa.

Here's a couple new pics of him in the front tank and a couple posted before...

Image

Image

Here, alpha was gently nipping at the comps fins. Alpha leaves the calvus alone but he will get after this comp and I believe that is due to the bad a_ _ attitude this comp has...
