Well my altolamp friends,.... for the first time, in close to ten years, I am now "officially" Altolamp-less. :(

As some of you may already know, I sold off my wild caughts some time ago. Those three wild caught groups (calvus BCWP, orange fin comps & Muzi gold heads comps) gave me, easily, 1000+ F1 fry which many of you have swimming in your tanks today (I would love to see some of those pics :wink: ). Recently, I sold off my last two F1 Altolamp growout groups. They are still one of my favorite species but I just needed to make room for some new interests (we all know how that goes). All of your participation has made this a great thread. Where else can you go to see so many pics of great looking altos in one place?

I am remastering some of my old favorite pictures for a project that I am working on (more about that later). I just wanted to share a few of these pics as I collect them for the project. Here's a couple pics of my favorite altolamp EVER! This was one of my breeding wild caught Muzi gold head comps. This dude was a stud. Please forgive this prideful statement (we are all proud of our fish)... he was a magnificent specimen and I miss him.

Please feel free to keep this thread going with pics of your altolamps - love them all! I'll add a few more later..........

Cheers,
Russ

So sorry to hear you have no altolamps Razzo, I find myself in the same position since I lost my wild caught Inkfins and sold all the babies. I miss them terribly.

I wish I had some of those goldhead babies!

Guys & Gals,

It's my pleasure to bump this thread as it was one of my all time favorites. I have been Altolamp-less for a while and this this afternoon, Lord willing, that will be changing with the arrival of a new group of wild Black calvus :) You know I'll be posting some pics :D

Of all the fish-pic threads I've ever viewed, this one takes the cake!

Great work! Makes me jealous having never dipped my toes into the Alto world and being an absolute buffoon with a camera!

They are such a fascinating species. Not only do they look cool - their behaviors are even cooler. Hope you get a chance to enjoy them soon!

Not sure where to post this: here or a new thread. I guess, I'll post here because you all have seen me go from multiple groups of altolamps to altolamp-less. I am now back into Altolamps; so, this is the thread to announce my return :D

***********************************
Very excited to have altolamps again! I broke down and ordered a wild group of Altolamprologus calvus (Black Congo Calvus) from Greg at Little Africa Aquatics (2m/3f). So happy with them! They are still very shy and hard to photograph without feeding them, based on past groups of altolamps, I trust this will improve. Pics are a few days old. They have since started getting much darker (which I like). I'll add more photos as they become less shy; but, here's a few early pics for starters...

sharing my 5 years old 5x2.5x2.5 approximately 235 gallon Tangan community tanks consist mainly of Alto Comp (Pardon the Congo Tetres Non-Tangan, they are mainly to diverse the aggression) and amateur photos taken with iPhone.
