That even cooler if you are keeping a rare fish! I would love to eventually keep a rare fish in the wild and try and help it breed that is a goal in a few years ...


Pretty fish tho hope you get their boss colors some time tho would like to see that

Just again, thanks to everyone for being so complimentary.

jjjohnston8623, he was a wedding gift from my husband, we got married in January this year :blush:

look into the cares program: www.carespreservation.com/

I contacted them after doing some serious research into which kind of Victorian fish would be able to live in a mbuna community. They, in turn, put me into contact with reputable breeders, eventually, one of them had links to a petshop in South Africa (two hours away from home!). We can't individually import fish, because of extremely stringent import laws (well, actually, stringent quarrantine laws where they kill fish in their holding tanks due to ignorance and charge you a fortune for it), but this pet shop helped me.

Cebosound, some fish really like having their pictures taken. Others duck for cover when I bring out the camera. I'm just lucky he doesn't mind too much.

Bassetman, they're just gorgeous. From www.african-cichlid.com/Lutea.htm if I'm not mistaken? Are they yours?

Thanks!

I just wish he was doing better. I do believe they need females around to have their full colour. At least it is generally healthy, and no longer being pushed around :)
