    you may want to check with CCA members Jon Clarke or Matt Quinn, either may have what you are lookin for. Both have been very helpful to me when I have had questions or looking for certain fish

    I have a bunch of the leucistic HRP that are about 1".

    I need to breed more of the Rio Danli HRP. Sold them all except a few.

    Wild-type cons are really different than what you find in LFS. I keep several types with provenance back to the wild.

    Some other wild-type cons I currently have fry (1/2") for are:

    A. kanna "Rio Robalo" (Panama cons)
    A. siquia "Grenada, Nicaragua" (larger ones too)
    A. siquia "Rio Cubayo" (Costa Rica)
    A. nigrofasciatus "Rio Choluteca" (Honduras) - larger ones too
    A. siquia "Rio Claro Red Fin" (Honduras) - new fry

    ...and also Cryptoheros cutteri "Rio Jutiapa" (larger, sexable) and Cryptoheros myrnae (fry growing out) and Neetroplus nematopus (Lago Nicaragua) - larger...

    Probably others I'm forgetting.

    Whats the difference? The reason why i want hrps is because of their blue color. My female con has a really bright orange (almost red) belly and she has some on her fins too. Can i see pictures of the wild type cons u have?

    HRP from Rio Danli are the only really blue "con" type.

    type in the locations on MFK and I probably have pics / threads.

    Both of those are still fry...too small to sell.

    I have Rio Choluteca, Grenada, Leucistic (Platinum) HRPs and cutteri "Jutiapa" that are large enough to sell...

    Planning to be at the June CCA meeting?
