    Wont be selling at the moment.I would like to set up a proper breeding colony and breed enough so that everybody that loves this BEAUTIFUL AND TIMID Cichlid will be able to have some in their Aquarium.I have three Males in one tank and none has broken fins although they do seize each other up.What is nice is that the two most dominant males change dominancy every now and then.They dont spend the whole day chasing each other.
    I searched Across the whole of South Africa , phoning all suppliers and breeders for almost a year before finding the 4 fish I purchased.It is SAD that this fish should be so scarce.When they matured it turned out to be 3 Males and only one Female.The first spawn was 9 fry which I gave to a friend.I have about 24 that is about 40mm and hopefully they will start spawning in a few months time.Then I have about 45 that is 25mm.which should probably be ready for new homes in a few months time.I only managed to catch 5 with her last spawn which was about a week ago.She seem to spawn every 6 weeks.Will keep you posted.
