I'm pretty siked as I'm picking up a male, later this week, to add to my Hap/Peacock set up.

Mixing species from different lakes is often discouraged, but I've learned this species works well with Haps/Peacocks.

It's often a matter of trial and error, so I'm crossing my fingers as this is a gorgeous, and not readily available, fish.

As soon as he quarantines and is added to the tank I'll use my newly acquired photography knowledge and post some images.

Wow Tracey, what an awesome find. Had to look that one up on Cichlid Forum, as I had not seen or heard of them. Great looking fish.

Looking forward to your pix, Tracey. From what I read, T. brauschi is not an aggressive species.

It should be a great option for a male tank. A nice looking fish that isn't too aggressive with other species. Apparently the males can be pretty aggressive with the females.
