More of my 55 front tank and my 30 gal
(pictures are bad, color gets a little weird and it gets all fuzzy in some of them)
so I now have

-8 7 stripe frontosa (4 to 3 inches in size)

-6 dolphin (5 to 4 inches and one 3 inch baby)

My dominate male front has made the cave on the left side of the tank HIS! he built up a "hill" of gravel in front of the cave and i think that is so cool (i see him moving rock to the top of it all the time) this picture has a red outline of the hill, it was FLAT there b4 he started doing his digging.
This is a picture of him inside of his cave, with flash. he has very nice stripes that did not show up in the picture :x
some more pictures of my other fronts (i didn't/can't get a picture of all 8 at one time, they are all over the tank and the only time they all come out is when i feed them)
and the right side of my tank...
the whole view...
and the dolphins(with flash)...
my breeding pair of dolphins, she has a mouthful in this picture(she is on top, father is on the bottom[my dominate dolphin cichlid])

and my 30gal green terror tank.

"Leo" is about 8 inches with this fins. I have put tiger barbs, and other things in with him just to have them disappear in a few days lol. it's all good tho, since i get all my fish for wholesale price from the store i work in(me and my boss are good buddies :D )
anyways here are some pics...

hrmmm..... where did he go?

also, i love comments. so leave one please. (even if it's bad i want to hear it)

and just to clear one thing up. i know how big my fish will get. a 90gal tank is planed for the fronts and the green terror will be moved to the 55.

idk what i will do with the dolphins, maby keep a few and get rid of a few :?

just have to get my money back from uncle sam at the end of the year and bigger tank here i come! lol

thanks here is a better picture of the frontosa

the green terror has been moved to a 75g and now has a JD tankmate and 2 smaller convicts as dither fish, the jack dempsey will feed right out of my hand, he is such a nice peaceful fish :D.

when the fronts get big i will remove one or two of the males(depending on how many males i end up with) and then put them in the 75 and move the GT and JD to the 55.

i do water changes every other day as to help with the growth of the fronts. they are getting bigger little by little :D
