Default new mpimbwes

Well i couldnt wait for my smaller ones to grow so i sold the 8 (4") for $200.
I got this new group ranging from 6-8" and the ratio is 1m6f for $20 each.
it was such a great deal i couldnt let it pass.
A week or so after settling down, 2 of the females spawn within days of each other
with about 10 of so eggs each. unfortunately i loss half the eggs from the calvus.
the frys are about 3 weeks old and are doing well.

heres some pics of the new group.


this is where he does his breeding dance with the females. right behind the rocks.




heres my 12+ mabilibili. unfortunately hes being to aggresive and chasing the new group and interupting the breeding. he is now in the divider and will have to go soon. i really hate to sell this guy but i dont want to mix the line. i will definitely miss this one.

i paid 20-40 bucks for my smaller ones few months ago, so yes awesome deal it is.
i would've paid $40 each for these ones but the owner needed the room for incoming
mobas. he had 10 but i dont have the room for all of them.

the 12" mabilibili and 5" calvus are now gone and went to a very good home.
but they will be missed, thats for sure.

i will post pics of the frys soon.

Some people have all the luck. Also that's an awesome 12" mabilibili. Whoever got it must also have a lucky charm
