All Great pics Kevin. Picture number 3 is awesome. You did an excellent job of capturing both the male and female profile as well as the subtle color of the female. It's so hard to capture all the color on the males, but I see hints of the purple on and behind the head, and the blue and red on the flank in your pics. Very Impressive Photography.

A quick update.

The color is changing a bit as they get older.

Wow, great observation! Do egg spots change over time?

The first set of pictures is of the young adult dominant male. He was quite aggressive and so I sold him. The most recent pictures are of the older vic that became the dominant male after I removed the first one.

In other words, when comparing egg spots realize that they are not the same fish.

Thanks Kevin!
I started to research this and learned that leopards change their spots...over time. However, despite the incredible color morphs that some cichlids go through, I didn't find any information regarding egg spots so I assume this is a constant through their lifetime.
Needless to say, great photography and it is appreciated.

egg spots are not a fixed trait and within the same species males can have any number but 3-5 is the norm
also getting to know my camera (after almost 3 years) pictures taken with DSLR's in RAW format show colour you cant see with the naked eye. Kevin i just recently had lithochromis xanthopteryx pics show red on the flanks !!! but cant see it by eye.

I guess this is another fish that goes through another dramatic change as they mature, i remember seeing xris's 5"+ beast at his home which was a stunner. I must give these a go one day :P
