    For Cyps, I am looking for something colorful and interesting. If I have to order them in (have them shipped), I am probably leaning towards Kitumba.

    Only thing I have fry of at this time are N. Cylindercus at roughly 3/4" and smaller (they might be closer to 1/2" - I know they are what I consider to small to sell).

    i have jumbo aqua fin chimba & black bee now. i have a bunch more mpibwe black bee & moba inbound. i mainly do larger jumbos so they don't get eaten by the gibs. my smallest are around 2.5" and the largest are 5.5". some of them are coloring up nicely, but i think they are still maturing. heads & bodies haven't started to show much yet, but they will.

    Great looking tank. The Gibs look great, I am assuming some type of Zaire Blue, possible Moba? I am keeping Mpimbwe Gibs.

    thanks!

    for gibs, you're right: i have kitumba, moba & lupota. they do have a LOT of color! love 'em. i also have an unidentified rescue front (almost all black, probably 15yrs old) and a rescue kigoma. they are both full grown and were in a 30gal tank with no substrate and no aquascape. much happier now! all in all, i have fifteen gibs/fronts ranging from 2" baby lupota to 13.5" 'big daddy'.

    i will take more pics when my next batch of guests arrive. i should have a dozen black bee on the 8th, half a dozen paracyps (3"-4"!!), half a dozen moba cyps and four enantiopus kilesa. at that point, i may be a little bit past 'fully stocked'. as everyone grows up, i'll probably have to divest a little bit. we shall see.

    Hello Frank,

    I have a wild breeding group that I got in Sept. They are 4 or 5 Wild Cyprichromis leptosoma blue Mpulungu (at least 1 male, need to see if I can find the other male).

    Cheers,

    Pierre
