The two rivals in fighting position. A male Cyrtocara moorii and the D. compressiceps.
The male in flying colors
Female D. compressiceps yawning. The size of the open mouth shows the predatory nature of the fish.
A bunch of Vallisneria gigantea was recently added in the tank to mimic the natural biotope of the D. compressiceps. It is only natural that the fish immediately chose this area as his "home"
