I just had two of my females hatch a cloud each. I have Them transferred to my new improved fry brooder box . I hope for better survival with less hands-on maintenance. I had to move the 3/8" sand sifter babies to a holding pen to make room for thEse fry.

WOW, those are Gorgeous. I would be interested in 2 if there are any available. Beautiful fish. Would these go ok with 3 Kapampa Fronts once near adult size? Thanks in advance. Great pics by the way.

To answer your other questions:
Yes - I do sell them.
Yes - I do have some available now.
Yes - I do ship.

Beyond that, please shoot me PM (PMs are more appropriate - I want to respect the site rules).

Thank you,
Russ

One of the treats in a threads like this is to document the development of a group of fry through the years. In this case, one fish in particular "Butkas" (some may remember that old post). Butkas is/was a fiesty alpha in the making. I had my eye on him early and kept him for a grow out group.

I first got this idea with my first group of C. gibberosa Kapampa fry

He came from my very first group of fry a few years ago
Image

Image

Not long after this is when he first started to make an impression
Image

This is when I first began to pick him out. He was the boss of this rock and he posed for a lot of pictures trying to intimidate the other calvus who liked his rock.
Image

Image

Image

A little bit larger - he had an overdose of the gold lace on his fins
Image

Image

Here he is, he ended up taking some battle damage on his dorsal fin
Image

The gold lace ended up being his defining characteristic
Image

Here's his most recent pic. he is closing in on four inches now:
Image

Image

Here's his brother that I kept from the same group too (they both are in different tanks at this time)
Image

Hope you enjoyed the trip down memory lane....

Russ

Thanks for the ride Russ. Great pictures and a nice looking couple of fish. Is Butkas in the 300 gallon with the frontosa?
