Far out! I remember you getting first ones and posting about it. I have some wc Kisambala too. Other than the biggest male definately being tank boss, haven't had any promising activity with them. As I remember from old pics, you keep yours by themselves. Mine being in very busy troph/petro mixed tank is probably supressing that a little. Sure doesn't slow the trophs down. Congratulations, it's an significant accomplishment in my eyes.

You remember right but after the first fry My tank have problem with aggressions i bought many new wc giants but many about 15 was killed by the boss.
So for 2-3 months ago i get tired nd buy many diffrent petros so for some months My tank is mix-tank with giants, Moshi, kasumbe orange, longolas and polydon.
I have about 60 fish now and is vetter now nobody has been killed since that.

So the last spawn is in mix-tank and the male has problem to spot the female because Of all fishes so that good.

All species spawn so that good.
I even have 7 fry about 1 inch from kasumbe female with giants father.

That's the key right there Magnus! So many fish that the aggressive ones get confused by the amount of "targets" LOL

Congrats on the spawn and such a beautiful tank!

Here's Magnus' tank:



Very nice tank Magnus. I like the vibe, kind of like in my 280 gallon tank where the fish are calm except for the dominant male chasing everybody out of his corner.
