For those that have read my forums and haved followed my posts I've been in a desperate search to find Demasoni to set them up with my Yellow Labs. The only problem was finding them as it seems that no one in Southern Cali has them or if they do want almost $30 a fish (Hollywood Price) and cash isn't that flexible for the amount needed necessarry, so options were very narrow. It was almost to the point where I was going to give up and just settle for another fish with the same blue coloring, even though I wouldn't be as happy. But luckily so many people have been reading my posts and adds and helped me the best way they could and someone gave me an actual reference to a local breeder that carried them. So yesterday (Thursday) I went out to get see if it were true, and finally the search is over I was able to get 11 Demasoni, and will be adding 2 labs 2day. I have some pics here to share and I'll continue to post updates as I heard they breed very fast and quite easy. Thanks to all that gave help, suggestions, and support I really appreciated it. Enjoy the pics....

Hey YellowLab,

I hope I'm as lucky as you. I've been trying to find a local breeder in Nashville, TN. There are not really any fish clubs out here. I tried one club but their website is not very active so I haven't even got an e-mail response from the site moderator.

I'm glad you were able to find a breeder in your area.

I am new to the forum, I have 4 Demasoni 1 Male and 3 Females. I also have a 10g and 20g baby tank with a total of about 40 fry. I don't strip the eggs from the mothers and they seem to do good that way. I also put the females in a breeders net so they are not messed with. Thought i'd share this info.

pdub, I had the same experience with my fish club. Sometimes the organizers are very long time fishkeepers and may not be as "into" the internet as we are. Just go to a meeting! They have auctions every month, and if you spread the word you are into Demasoni, they will being some to the auctions.

Mine are doing great! They're very active and have colored up nicely. The alpha male looks great. His colors are very deep and he's pretty big. They get along great with my 7 yellow labs.

Yea so is mines actually I think I have two they both have deep colors than the rest and they're always chasing each other. But at the same time they're still little and most of still look white lol so I'm waiting for them to get bigger. Very entertaining though

I have a question.....I know Demasoni are aggressive and can hold their own but does this mean that aggression is shown to other tankmates or just within the colony? And if so around what size does this tend to take place? Just so I'm prepared.

Can be both but mostly within the colony. Newborn fry show aggression, but it usually doesn't become a problem until sexual maturity...starting around 1.5".

I'd go with a black background. You can either paint it on (the outside, of course :wink: ) or pick up a piece of corrugated plastic (for signs) and spray paint it. I like the corrugated plastic because I can paint one side one colour and the other side another colour and switch it up!

Dark green would be great for the other side...
