CAS Update 10/10/2021


CCA Members

If you have any trouble with the links below, go to the website https://www.cichlidsarespecial.com/ click on livestock from the home page, then choose Aulonocara Peacocks. Malawi Haplochromines, or Malawi Mbuna. Next look for the fish you want by photo. Click on the name below the photo. Last click on the drop-down under the words Available Options. This will give you a list of what is left for that fish and how many are left.
For some unknown reason, the links do not always work on everyone’s device or computer. It may be a security thing on the receiver’s end. This is the way to get around it.

Please help me reduce stock. I need to reduce to the point that I will be able to breed and grow out my best fish only due to a decline in my wife’s health. Fish that I do not plan to continue to grow out are reduced 35 to 50%

CAS is now primarily a breeder of a few select African Cichlids. Our emphasis is on Quality over Quantity. Grab the ones we have available when they are posted.

New Quality Control Procedures:

Any fish showing signs of problems, that do not respond to treatment is now called.

All grow outs go throw a three-day deworming treatment when they reach 2-inches in size.

If my breeders fall too far behind and I have the money to do an order from my wholesaler, I will notify you by the newsletter of a rare chance to order fish directly from the wholesaler (Special Orders). Special orders will have a short time to be completed when available. All Special-Order fish will be quarantined and treated for two weeks including three days of deworming treatment before they are shipped or are available for pickup.
