My Geo. Altifrons

I got these guys at the September meeting from George and they have quadrupled in size!!! I love them but they are going to force me into putting them into a bigger tank sooner than I expected. I feel bad cuz they are crammed in with my discus,blue rams,cories and a couple plecos. Im seriously thinking about selling my MALAWIS and putting these guys in my 125G and skipping buying a new tank all together. BTW the Geos had just eaten bloodworms so their bellies look really full.

Those guys look awesome. What type of pleco is that? Don't get rid of the Africans! We need to keep the Malawi force strong.

Im not fully decided on the Malawis. I love them and have grown most of them out from young. At the same time my Discus and Geos are growing by the minute. Im so torn..... Im going to go look at a 5 ft 120G this afternoon that a local fish store has had for a long time, im going to see if they want to make a deal. If not I may be banished from the Fraternal Order of Malawi Keepers. : (

Get a new tank. :-) Another 6 footer would be awesome! There are a lot of used tanks for sale out there. But if not, I will take on some of your nice Malawis. Good luck!

Awesome looking fish bro! I wanted some too, but then I figured I did not have enough tank space to have some.

Nice job Jose. They are growing like mad. You must really feed them well.
