There are 22 WC Kitumbas in there, 6 males (12-14") and 16 females. To be honest, I don't really care about breeding right now. I moved to Montreal for school and the tank and the fish are in the trusted care of a close friend of mine.

I told him that if he wants to make a buck and sees them spawning ...they're his. For now, all I care is to grow them all. The emperors are 20"+, exhibiting courtship at least once a month, but the Kits are pretty much in their element in that tank, it's an 8'x3'x27" Tenecor. Plenty of room for everyone.

I want to keep this group for a long, long time ...trying to see if they can reach 18"

Wow. The Fronts look small compared to the Emperors.

If you ever want to sell that tank please contact me. I'll come to Montreal to get it.
