Altolamprologus compressiceps (Muzi gold head)
It took about a year, but my wild Muzi gold head comps finally started to spawn. I did this with my calvus and folks seemed to like it; so, I thought I’d try it with my F1 Muzi gold head comp fry: a photo journal of their development.

The fry start to emerge from the spawning shell and move is busy chasing off any threats (11/4/11)

Altolamprologus compressiceps (Muzi gold head)
The two dominant males have each paired off with a female and they exclusively spawn with only that male. This is the beta male and he is my favorite. I’ve had a hard time getting good images of him as he is always moving when his fins are flared.

Thanks for the kudos guys :D

iandraco, it is hard to say at this point, if I had to guess, I would say the Gold Head Muzi comps should be of a shippable size (1.25") in May or June (I am trying to maximize growth rates). The Calvus BCWP are about 1.5 months behind the Muzis. For now, that is my best guess. As soon as I can clear out one of my 55 gallon tanks for the Muzis, their growth rate should increase. I am shooting for May :D

Thanks,
Russ

They are worth waiting for. All of your babies are still doing great here.

Hey Russ,

What species will you have for sale other than the gold heads?
