Default Gibberosa stocking advice needed :)

So I'm going to be settin up a tank soon and a breeding colony of 7 gibberosa , I cannot make up my mind upon which strain I would like to get! Something with a smallish nauchal hump(not too big not too small,still present) I have viewed Mikula an that is my fav so far , an suggestions on which gib is attractive would be appreciated!

Moba males have small hump. I think Kapamba males have small hump also. They are all very beautiful!

I have researched them before but so long ago , I will look them up again and see. I am also looking for a fish that has lots of colour to it but not as much colour as a blue Zaire!

I have alot of nice Zaires in stock, I have to go with the Kapampa I have right now, good size and deep deep blues, hard to beat, but all Zaires are king.

Most of my Mikula have come from Greg (Little Africa Aquatics). The other six fish in Naytazi's tank and four in Tau's tank have come from Greg. Two thumbs up to LAA for deiovering some HOT Zaire gibbs

Now the real trick will be to get Greg to ship to South Africa for Jordan
