The C.A.R.E.S. Preservation Program • Pseudotropheus saulosi

The purpose of the C.A.R.E.S. Preservation Program is to encourage hobbyists worldwide to devote tank space to one or more species-at-risk, while forming an information network between aquarists, scientists and conservationists. Hosted by C.A.R.E.S. speaker Klaus Steinhaus

I thought some members might be interested to know that Stuart M Grant Fish farm has engaged in a captive breeding program, of Pseudotropheus saulosi, for the purpose of reintroduction to Taiwan(ee) Reef. The numbers of wild specimens is quite low, hopefully this protects the species in the wild

Awesome news!
Too many fish to choose from, too few tanks!

I've been working with these guys since 06' and I'm glad to hear this. I'm designing a species only tank for them over the next few months and will continue selective breeding of the species.

Do you know how to get offspring certified? I have a few juveniles who I am pretty sure are purebred, but I haven't heard back from the ACA.

Just saw a presentation by Larry Johnson at our clubs March meeting and he showed a video he shot of the 2014 release of the fish. About 50 if I recall. This was his 14th trip to the lake. By his account they are doing ok.

I've been out of the hobby for several years and I'm so surprised at this turn of events! I have a 125 that is destined to become Africans. I'd love to make it saulosi if I could find pure specimens. Is anyone within driving distance of Chattanooga, Tenn?

Members would not be looking at this forum if they wanted to sell saulosi...they would look at Classifieds. If you want to acquire CARES fish you work with your local fish club...you go to them, and IME it takes some tracking down.

There are tank raised saulosi on the lists now from reputable dealers who I would trust to provide pure fish. PM me if you need the info.
