Anyone else have Vieja Cichlid’s?

Curious if anyone else has Vieja Cichlids? I’ve only seen one in local pet shops and I bought her

Paretroplus Menarambo

Offered up are my group of 8 Paretroplus Menarambo. These are a Malagasy(Madagascar) cichlid, and they are currently on the IUCN red list as critically endangered. The habitat and numbers of ciclids endemic to that region are in serious danger due to over fishing and environmental issues. The largest of these beauties is approximately 9" TL(pictured), and they can possibly get a few inches larger. M/F ratio is unknown, but I'm pretty confident that there are 2 females that have spawned. They have spawned multiple times, but I have had difficulty keeping the fry alive. Because of those difficulties and the fact that they are endangered, I feel it is critical that offspring should be saved from them to help preserve the species, so that is why I am posting them. So please only reply if you are willing to give the necessary effort to at least try to accomplish that goal. I can give advice as to when they have spawned and the minimal effort it takes to get them to. They are not overly aggressive, even when spawning, and are not picky eaters that require a specialty diet, just feed good quality pellet and flake foods. They will require a large tank, 6' long and 150g minimum, obviously bigger is better. Because they form a heirarchy that can cause problems if the group is broken up, they will be sold together. Even though I have shipped many fish up to about 4", I can only offer local cash pickup in Central NJ at this time because of their size. Shipping would only be an option if the buyer is willing and can pre-arrange something as far as packaging goes. Contact me with any questions. DSC_0020.JPG

CAS Update 1/25/2020

Shipping delay in effect until the weather overnight is forecasted to be above freezing. I may be able to ship to some closer by areas early in the week of January 27 if it does not drop below freezing to very late overnight.

The main event is on Saturday with a Marketplace (Vendors from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm) and Rare Fish Auction from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. For more details see https://capitalcichlids.org/bigfishdeal/I hope to see a large number of my customers at the marketplace on Saturday between 11:00 and 3:00 pm this year

I did not have a lot of time to check fish this week. There a large amount of other fish still available on https://cichlidsarespecial.com/

My plan for 2020 is to concentrate on breeding more and growing out of smaller sizes of better sellers. Slow sellers will move to the Special order lists which will only occur when I have sold enough fish to make room for more. I need your help to clear space. Please order fish when you can and especially try to purchase those on clearance so I can clear those tanks. The next special order list will likely occur around February 16 or 17 with fish come on February 25 so they will clear two-week quarantine in time to be available for delivery to the BFD on March 14.

Nimbochromis linni for Memorial Tank

Hello

I'm searching for Nimbochromis linni for a very special memorial tank in honor of my stepfather. He was one of the pioneers in the PNW in breeding African cichlids starting in 1971 in Washington State. He was known in the community for raising enormous bright colorful fish. Us kids all grew up with tanks everywhere in the house, even the bathrooms. Are livingroom had the 200 gallon tank with Nimbochromis linni we would talk and watch them and he would always say at the end linni are my absolute favorite cichlid. If anyone can point me in the direction of finding juveniles or adults would greatly appreciate it.

Cheers

Joseph and Family
