Default F1 Kapampa update

I recently moved from NW Ohio down to Cincinnati. My beloved Kap's and friends spent 4 days in a 55 gallon tote. Everyone survived to ordeal while I was moving house, starting a new job and trying to get the tank set back up again. Sadly most of the Kap's lost their trailers in the cramped space, but they should grow back in time. Here's a short vid now that they ate settling back into their 125gal. Hope you enjoy.

Nice fish, glad everything went well. I have Dolphins with my fronts too and think they make great tank mates.

Great looking group! Yeah, the trailers grow back but might take a little time.

Good looking group.

Agree, trailers grow back given the chance.

That link worked! Nice fish. I had some wild caught Kapampas a few years ago. I bought them as a breeding group but never spawned for me so I eventually sold them. My wild caught Mpimbwes are at least sporadically producing, so I wish you the same good luck if you are hoping for fry.

I have heard that Kap's can be one of the more difficult variants to breed. I don't know how or why that would be TBH. My F1's were bred in captivity here in the USA but they're my 1st gibb's and are only 2.5 yrs old so still a long way off breeding age.
