Cyphotilapia gibberosa (Mikula)

Little trip down memory lane. Few of my favorite pics from my F0 Mikula breeding groups. I am enjoying this trip down memory lane...

Honorable mention to Tsididi who snuck in a successful spawn under Tau's nose after I moved him to the 240 :lol:

How can you not enjoy that trip down memory lane. Do you still maintain any semblance of the group.

As always I enjoyed both your pics and advice so it's nice to stroll down memory lane!

That was a beautiful colony. I remember reading a lot of your posts on another site. I have had my group for 6 years now and still love them. Beauty, low maintenance, peaceful fish.

Hey smitty,

No, I got out of the hobby completely when we moved from Indiana to SW Florida about four years ago. The only cichlids I play with now are ones I catch while fishing in the local canals down here. Been having a blast with the Peacock Bass.

Thanks Dee. I had a lot of photos out on the web. Many of them were ranked pretty high on Google. Then I messed around with my Flickr account and deleted most of them :o

I regret that.

Thought I'd start putting few of my old favorites back up.

Cheers,
Russ

Yep, that old site went through some hard times. It's implosion was inevitable. Too bad.

Definitely peaceful fish. I put a couch in front of my breeding groups and would chill out and just watch them.

Gorgeous fish and photos. Funny enough, your photos inspired me to seek on some Mikula... which I finally managed to get some two years ago. I've been in the cichlid hobby since around 1980, but never kept frontosa. But I've got a group now, in a 220 gallon aquarium, and love them.

I miss your a Mikula, and mine. Remember when we were the first few to have them? Good times!
