 Good  looking  set-up.The  background  is  very  appropriate  for  a  cichlid  setup.Just  an  observation  ,  the  tank  would  look  even  better  with  a  lighther  coloured  sand.  It  looks  a  bit  too  dark  at  this  moment,  but  that's  me  Smile

 Thanks  a  lot  Shameek  and  Sundar:  i  feed  them  Hikari  Cichlid  Gold  and  Hikari  Cichlid  Staple.
 
 @coolbin:  yep  the  lank  is  poorly  lit.  but  twice  they  have  splashed  water  and  did  some  damage  to  the  CFL.  so  this  time  it  is  just  an  ordinary  tube.  however  i  have  read  that  to  bring  the  best  colors  for  cichlid,  the  gravel  has  to  be  dark.
 
 @Kaushik:  trust  me  they  are  Goons,  every  fish  is  hardy  and  knows  to  handle  the  situation.  i  am  having  them  all  since  they  were  1-1.5  inch  and  added  them  all  at  a  time.this  was  around  18  months  back.....  no  casualty  in  the  old  batch.  however  new  additions  (just  2  in  the  past)  don't  survive  for  long.Also,  sometimes  i  feel  the  urge  to  change  the  collection(i  gave  away  8  of  them  to  LFS  for  selling  as  i  planned  to  get  Fronts).  but  after  seeing  their  condition  in  LFS  after  2-3  days.  i  got  them  all  back.  they  belong  here.  i  change  50%  water  every  week.  and  they  stay  cool.  funny  thing  is  that  when  you  read  about  Salvini,  most  websites  say  they  are  non  diggers  and  nice  for  plants.  whereas  mine  are  prolific  diggers.  just  see  what  they  did  to  the  vallisneria.  i  have  atleast  planted  them  10  times  over  the  past  30days(since  i  removed  the  vals  from  my  planted  tank)  and  every  time  they  they  dig  it  out  in  a  day).  i  removed  other  rocks  as  all  of  them  keep  digging  a  lot.

 trust  me  if  the  eggs  start  hatching  i'll  have  plenty  to  give.  specially  if  you  are  in  Bangalore,  you'll  definitely  get  it.  however  both  time  the  eggs  haven't  hatched.
