Here is my cichlid tank. I love these fish! The pics aren't that good because I just used the photo-shot option on my camcorder.

Sub-dominant male lab with a cobalt blue.

Er... fifty-five gallons. Smile Did you mean dimensions? It contains 4 yellow labs, 5 red zebras, 5 cobalt blue zebras, and a syno catfish (someone want to tell me the full spelling of "syno?"). I was in a hurry when I posted that, so I will go back and put some captions on.

Looks vaguely like euterpus, the syno...but a better picture would be great! Smile Could also be a hybrid.... -_-

It isn't albino, the light is just reflecting off it real bad. The one you were refering to is a male red zebra. He has become very pale and his fins are distinctly blue. I assume you were talking about him in the big picture. If you look at the third pic from the bottom, you will see the light colored fish is the same one. There are no albinos in the tank, but albino zebras look quite a bit like that male zebra in the full tank photo, only with pink eyes.

Your synodontis is a Synodontis Ocellifer, and can grow upto 10", but usually reach about 8". Smile
