The dub fry my friend gets from his kingoma are striped at first for 2-3 weeks and then get thier spots. I'm just saying I'm thinking they should be spotted by now or soon. :wink: Oh you meant 24 days from when you fish did the "Honky Tonk" not after being spit. They will be spotted soon enough.
Yes the photo was taken 24 days after the fish had spawned. And they are definitely Tropheus duboisi "Maswa". :lol: The black stripes grow wider and eventually they look like they're covered in polka-dots. Most people prefer the juvenile forms to the black velvet adult coloration and are disappointed when they lose the "spots". IMO they look equally cool!
