Hi Guys,

My WC Breeding Colony of C. Gibberosa Zaire Kapampa arrived last week (2m & 6f). They are all doing very well and I am pretty excited as you can imagine. Below are some pics from the first week. Hope you like, Russ

nice score, Razzo. it's hard to believe you've only had them for a week. they look like they've owned your tank for a while already. care to pm your source? and their value? 8)

Thank you for the compliments - I really appreciate them! I am very excited to say the least. My new WC Colony are the parents of the fry/juvies that I have been posting pictures of (see pic of one of the fry below). I was stunned when my breeder/friend told me they were for sale. I was not even in the market for WC fontosa but I figured I had to jump on this colony as they are very beautiful and the fry they produce are (IMHO) stunning. As most of you know, they no longer collect WC Kapmapa anymore for various reasons so, I figured this colony would be a good investment too. They were very good breeders for my friend. Lord willing, they will continue to breed for me. I really enjoy frontosa, I can see it being really hard to give up/sell the first batch of fry.

Thanks again.

Take care,
Russ

Me too. That is probably the biggest feature that attracted me to the Kapampa... the contrast created by the darker black pigment that they have.

Thanks,
Russ
