Thanks guys

As mentioned above, this guy was one of the first batches of F1 Altolamprologus calvus (Black Congo White Pearl) that my wild group ever produced. He is a few years old by now.





And here is the latest generation of F1 Altolamp fry in the fish room. This is a 55 gallon tank and I have been using it to grow out the latest F1 batches of A. calvus BCWP fry and F1 A. compressiceps Muzi gold head fry. There was 70 more in there a few weeks ago that I shipped a southern state. My best guess, they are approx. to 1

Russ, All I can say is that - one look at those frys and even a layman will conclude that they are A+ class. Very good quality parents. BTW do you strip your Calvus & Altos too or do you let them hold. As usual, nice photography

They're substrate/cave spawners so no holding Jay.

Jai,

This is one of the F0 females. They lay their eggs in the shell and at a later date you will see free swimming fry at the mouth of the shell
