Blue Zaire Moba

Postby O.CELIK #7 » Sun Jan 09, 2011 10:19 am

Cyphotilapia Blue Zaire Moba was the passion of my hobby for 11 years. I always wanted to feed some of them. Now after 11 years thanks to a friend I have some baby Mobas. They are 35 days old and they have many more years to live and I'll their photos to this topic.

Parents of my fishes was cought at the Zaire Lake Tanganyika. They have ''F0 Wild Fish'' certficate and they are 8 years old..

All the same of group. But 4 of them is significantly larger than others. I'm guessing that they are male.
