He is a good looking fellow. Cool to have raised him from a fry. I really like the picture of him and your alpha front. As always Russ great pictures!!

Thanks JRD :D

Yah, I have been saving several orange fin comps and several calvus to add to some fronts one day (takes a lot of patience). As they got over 3" I started whittling them down to just a few.

My next project is some two inch Muzi gold head comps I have been growing out for the same purpose. I have a handful of Gold Head fry that may have the traits of their father (I hope so!!!!). This is one of the wild males that sired 1/2 of the Muzi fry. Wouldn't they look nice with some fronts?

I guess I'll leak some info that I have been keeping quite for a few months.... these fry groups pictured (calvus BCWP & Muzi gold head comp) are the last altolamp fry that I will be producing/raising. I no longer own the wild parents and the current owner of them has no desire to deal with altolamp fry.

All part of the downsizing that I have been doing this past year.

So, this is it folks. My efforts will shift to my Mikula gibbs.

Take care,
Russ

I remember you were down sizing I didn't think you had sold off all of your comps. Mikula will be fun and you have a great hand picked group it sounds like.
