    Thank you. I hope the Red Empress turns out to be a male and I hope the Strawberry will color up nicely as it grows. :)

    I love Nimbochromis Venustus hope you end up with a male. They are awesome looking with the blue. I like red empress as well and you should know soon if it is a male or not.

    The Venustus is a mean little bugger. S/he's the dominant of the tank, that's for sure. The Empress has started to develop some blue on its cheeks. I'm not sure if that's common coloration for juveniles or if it is starting to get some adult coloration?

    I saw a couple blue specks which will most likely mean it is a male. Yes Venustus can get a bit dominant lol. I have about an 8inch male that rules the tank in one of my setups.
