Some top level or mid level swimmers like Leptosoma or Tropheus.

These guys are awesome. They can go with calvus, frontosa, leptosoma, nigripinni,etc. they can get along with most fish from lake tanganika actually. They require high PH and need some hiding holes to feel comfortable, shells and caves should do it. They are shy creatures and real slow to grow.

Look forward to seeing some pictures soon :D
Btw is this your birthday present or is this still coming? :lol:

cyps are great, they make the comps and other fish feel comfortable and that's when they start getting active! but if your cyps are holding strip them or when they spit them out, if the fry can fit in the comps mouth they can swallow them up sam! haha. can i see some pictures pretty please? i reckon fronnies and comps look mad together!
