Thanks Jordan. There are a lot of beautiful Cyphos on this site but, LOL, I a biased as I am sure everyone Cypho keeper is of their own alphas :-)

The story about Nyatzi is... I've repeated this before,.... Nyatzi and Tau were part of the personal all star group of my friend and long time importer. He has since retired, but, before retiring, he sifted his own all star group from many imports and hundreds of Mikula pieces. Now, my buddy had been importing since the early days when TR first started sending Kapampa to the states and is (or was) one of the most knowledgeable people in the hobby. He said of Nyatzi, "he is one of the top three males I have ever seen come in from the lake."

So, when some health issues made maintenance difficult, I got the first call when he decided to sell off his all star group. I was not even in the market for a wild caught group of Cyphos; however, I knew the history of the group and I made the impulse purchase :-)

Now you may understand why, after Tau beat up Nyazti in an alpha - beta battle in the 240, that I started up a new 125 for Nyatzi and got some new hot wild Mikula females for him from Greg. My only regret is the fin damage Nyazti sustained from the beating Tau gave him.

And, that's th rest of the story.

Former Emperor of all things Mikula
