Lepidiolamprologus hecqui with fry

One of the Lake Tanganyika communities in my fish room combines a small colony of Tropheus duboisi and a pair of Lepidiolamprolugus hecqui.  The L. hecqui is a really cool shell-dwelling lamp that does not get as large, or as nasty, as the more familiar Lepidiolamprologus species (L. kendalli, for example).  I started with six of them, but a pair quickly established their dominance and I had to remove the others.  This video is from the pair’s first spawn.  I will shoot a new clip soon to show how much they have grown in the past six months.
