I started with tropheus so I have always been a huge fan of over filtration and lots of water movement.


I love them too, I have a colony in my 75g along with a few Vic hybrids and 3 PN's. They love to swim against the current, that's for sure!

I've always really liked tropheus, but for some reason have never got into them.

Stay away! Like all cichlids they are addicting! Jk they are great and I love my tropheus. They are by far my favorite fish to watch. Pantera is right, they will get about 8 inches from a powerhead and just school against it. The most active fish I have by far.

Lol I'm debating on it(have for some time now), if I did go through with it and get some, I would like to only pick out 1 species of tropheus and get a colony and just have them in something like a 75G. But I just dont know which one I would want to get. There all very nice.

PM Mike Dunagan, he has some real beauties and knows his tropheus.

The dom male of my colony was really hard on male rivals but since I have some Vics in there, he is much more subdued. He's not the boss in that tank. As juveniles, I can not think of a more fun fish....countless time I'm laughing out loud as to their antics in the tank. They must be on some kinda drug.....there's all goof balls, with several of my guys having very distinct personalities.

That being said, Victorians are my passion!

Always hated doing the maintenance when I had my salt tanks. No doubt an excellent type of filtration....just call me lazy?

not to bad if set up right. if you dont have easy access then it makes it a PITA and therefore not done very often. ease and handy access makes for lite work.
