Large 5" Hertae pending.

Would love to sell the 4" male with a group of females as a group. These are interesting fish - in the wild they use their lips to suck their prey from the rocks. That irritates their lips, causing them to swell some (thus the cool big lips they get naturally). Dave Schumacher actually talked about them for a little while at our JRAS meeting the other week. I'm also honored that he uses my photo of one of my males on his site.

I'd love to clean up some space - will either sell these to local Richmond area people or can bring up to the BFD Friday night.

Adult Black Calvus proven pair (3+ years old)

XL A. koningsi "Blue Regal" ~6" (Pic is an older one when it was smaller)
I could pick out a couple of females if you'd like breeding trio.



(2) adult A. stuartgranti "Chipoka" that I've line bred for a ton of orange (pic is of sibling that I'm using to continue the line)

A few smaller (1.5 - 2") males/females from the above male. Males are showing color already.

Adult trio of Lethrinops sp. "Red Cap" Chirwa (male is 5" and females 4" - do a lot of sand sifting and breed pretty regularly)



(3) adult A. hansbaenschi in the 4"+ range (crummy cell phone pic)

View attachment 20487

Adult trio of Otopharynx lithobates (male 5", females 4" - spawn regularly)
Also have another male and subdominant male. Excuse the dirty glass, crappy pic.

View attachment 20488

Large male (6") and 3 females (4") of this hap that I can't identify. I'm guessing it's a Copadichromis sp. Excuse the dirty glass crappy pic.

Protomelas sp. "Hertae"
(1) 5" male (about when they start to color up)
(1) 4" male
A couple of females in the 3" range that I can sex

View attachment 20494

(They eventually color up to this)



A. jacobfreibergi "Tsano Rock" 1"-2" unsexed juvies
I also have an adult breeding quad I might part with. They are in a crummy tank for photographing right now, but the adult male looks like this (only a little bigger).



Several full color male P. steveni "Taiwan Reef" between 2.5-4".

Shoot me a PM if anything interests you and I can figure out a price. Looking forward to the convention again!
Hi for some reason can’t pm but if you can get back to me I’m interested in the chipoka maybe either the adult or a mix of the smaller ones
Thanks

Lane - are you staying the full weekend, or are you going home between friday and Sunday?

Definitely recommend Lane's fish, I've bought some great stuff from him in the past. His photography is even better.

OK, update on what is left:

3 adult A. hansbaenschi "Red Shoulder" males
2 large and 1 medium Taiwan Reef males (I can match with a couple females for a group)
Adult Black Calvus pair
Adult A. jacobfreibergi "Tsano Rock" 1M/3F quad

Are you coming up to the BFD? I am very tempted to go back to a ruby red peacock tank -- one boy and a few girls. Looks like you have a nice lineage.

Am I coming? They'd have to have a court order to keep me away.*




*Better than even chance that one is being arranged as we speak.

I've already seen a petition with 17,000 signatures trying for an injunction to keep him in virginia.

I'm starting a 75 gallon peacock tank I would be interested in seeing what you have left. I wasn't sure how to send you a PM so I could give you my contact info.
Thanks Tony
