Thank you! I hope these fish are indeed of the father pictured above. The seller seemed very honest and seemed to take pride in his fish, so I hope to see them color up in a nice gold. If not, they are still beautiful to meMr Chromedome said:Assuming that the last photo is the father, those are Cichlasoma boliviense, not Andinoacara sapayensis. There were a number of individual collections a few years ago, and this species has been well distributed in the US. It is related to the Port Cichlids, but are popular because they have some color.
Yes, Ken was great to deal with. I also got from him the Australoheros sp local red ciebal that I posted a thread about. Good to hear a good word about him. I even asked him specifically about where he collected this Gold Acara and he remembered specifically, which is a cool little fact for me to know.Auballagh said:Fishfarmusa? Hah! That's Ken Davis' outfit.
Kinda surprised he whiffed on that one. The man has been doing this at a high level for a number of years. Oh well, if those youngn's grow out like the one you have pictured? Whew... those are gonna be some very nice fish.
