    March 2008 Photo of the Month Winner : Chaitika

    The winner of the March 2008 Photo of the Month is
    Chaitika

    Specifics of the photograph

    The image was taken with a Nikon D70s with overhead flash. The fish in question is a wild caught female Tropheus Moori Kasakalawe. The tank is a 5.5 foot 120 gallon tank that houses a colony of 20 breeding T. Kasakalawe and a small group of petrochromis. It is also worthy to note that out of 5 breeding tropheus groups, she is the only female to actually care for her young after initial release. She typically looks after them for about 10-14 days post release, taking them in her mouth at the slightest hint of danger. It is a very natural behaviour in the lake, but not often seen in aquaria, and quite difficult to capture with a camera. It literally took me about 75 hours of sitting quietly in front of the tank before she would release them in front of me.
