Default WC Kapampas

These are a WC Kapampa group that I'm thinking about buying. The picture quality isn't great, but I could really use some help from the pros on judging the quality the best they can from the photos I have. Any opinion appreciated good or bad. The males have sunken bellies from what I can tell and the seller says they came in worse then that and he's been slowly filling them out.







Thanks,
Jeff

Other than being a little on the thin side, nI think they look pretty good. The fins and trailers all look really good and long.

Your fish are unreal. Males are sick and getting some serious ridge/hump. Those first two pics of the females are awesome. Beautiful shape, mask and fins. Looks like a top group.

Thanks guys for the input. Does anybody else want to make a comment to help me out before I take the plunge? They also aren't in the best ratio, 4M/3F. I'm hoping I could sell two males and with all your help locate 5 WC females for the group giving me a 2m/8f ratio for my 225 gallon. any thoughts?

The Kaps look really nice. Since the group is male heavy, the price should reflect that. To find an additional 5 wc Kap females is going to be tough.
It realy depends on how badly you want them..........Good luck!

Thanks everybody. finding additional WC females is going to be tough. But as everybody here should know when it comes to Cyphos patience is the key. I think they are a steal at $700 and I'm thinking I'll be taking them.

The girls look legit but the guys will will need a bit more TLC. Regardless though, the price is quite nice.

Patience pays off...It took me 2 years to get back a good group of WC mobas. Best of luck
