I've got several tanks empty at the moment while I rearrange my office and my kids' move their bedrooms, etc. When I set them back up I am very tempted.... these pics remind me what I'm missing!

Very nice pics, So glad to see someone close is into Haps. Had them years ago in the early 90s then sources for them dried up for me. I just might have to convert a tank to them.

They really do look good! I need you to show me your secrets Laughing

Marks' gorgeous stock makes things easier, though. ThumbsUp

The fish look vibrant and healthy and the pix are excellent!
I do have a request, though. Those of us who do not know cichlids very well might find it beneficial if at least the first example of each different species was labeled with its name. Scientific names with the most used common name would be ideal!

I'm going to be asking everyone to do this from now on and I hope they will! It will be such a great resource and show up in web-wide searches.
cheers

I was hoping the idea you have could be used through the fish list area as well Ancistra'. I plan to go back and list each scientific name next to my common names. It would be great to add it to each picture too.

I completely agree...but I don't know anything about Africans:( so I don't know what they are. If a moderator wants to go in and label them, that's fine.

Mark, it was actually taken with a little point and shoot Sony digital camera.

As far as secrets go, my best recommendation is to never use a flash. The tank lighting lets in plenty of light for a photo op. The less background light the better, I usually take all my pics at night.
