Default Holding Female Already? 5 Days After Arrival!?







So these fish arrived late Thursday. Actually early Friday morning after a shipping mix up. I got home today and it looks like a fish with a mouthful!

I will defer to those on this board with a ton more experience than me. Any opinion is appreciated.

She looked gravid and her tube was kind of dropped but I was more concerned she was in poor health than breeding shape.

Could I be that lucky?

Congrats, UnclePeter. You've got a holding female. Doubtful in collecting any fry though.
Beautiful Kigoma you have there. I wonder if this is the name variant as the Bagwe because they look the same to me.

Excellent

Im not planning on stripping this soon so we will see what happens. I have luck letting my trophs spit in the tank.

Great sign of things to come!

Ill post a video of the entire group shortly.

Heres the colony. I have not been able to id the males with certainty yet but I believe the male that spawned may be on the right of the tank.

7 WC fish 2/5 in a 125. FX6 and an AC110 with prefilter caribsea cichlid sand.
