I think there's still a few of us die hards that still check in pretty often but yeah, the forum has been super slow the last few months. Hope it picks back up again!

Nanook....I've got a nice little batch of lupota growing out for you when you're ready. They'll look pretty awesome in that 375 gallon "pond" you have rolling. lol

I just need to plumb this baby up with a couple friends who have been busy boating and camping with their families, hopefully in the next few weeks they will free up. They're very good at thinking out tank builds and I value their input. I bought an FX6 in addition to the huge wet dry filter. Now to find rocks for aqua scaping.

Looking forward to getting your lupota! Glad there are breeders like you out there.

I have nine Kaps about 8 inches in length. They are currently sharing my 265 gallon with three tropheus Moliro, and these are about 4 inches in length. The Kaps are quiet and peaceful, the others like to nip at a fun every now and then. I have also had yellow labs in there but too much commotion. I want them to be relaxed and so far have removed the labs and one Moliro...eventually I will catch the remaining two. My main focus is also the Kaps.

The forum might be quiet, but it is specific to the information I am looking for.

Thx again Fisher...did you sell the larger Chumbu & Lupota fry you had recently? I know someone looking for larger than the usual 1" fry.

How did I miss the 2nd video? In a hurry I guess. Still a nice tank.

My experience with dolphins is they can get pushy when they get some size to them, unless there's another fish that intimidates them into minding their manners. The other fish I'd keep an eye on is the trets. Good looking fish and looks like they're good citizens in the video, but they can get aggressive/nippy.
