Neolamporologus Brichardi

Brichardi are a species of cichlids from Lake Tanganyika. Beautiful fishes are characterized by tan colored body with flowing lyre shaped tail fins, blue eyes with matching shiny blue on the fin tips. The edge of the gill cover has a 'T' shaped black marking with a yellow blotch. Overall the fish looks stunning.
Recently I managed to get a group of six juveniles and managed to setup my three footer for a Tanganyikan setup.  The setup has to contain rock formations mainly vertically stacked, preferably till the water level. These fish are typical tanganyikans, prefer hard and alkaline water.

Few pictures of my about 1'' juveniles.
