yes, it sure is. I have not seen alot of people keeping mikula, could they be one of the ones your referring to ? I thought they had been around a long time ago and then went out of favor and are coming back, but dont quote me on that.

Mikula are new.
only 1 person in USA has them.
Kalumba where the new ones about 2 years ago.

The other 5 tembwe, moliro, kitumba, moba and kapampa have been around for awhile now.

Can't be true I know of a Guy here in CO that has a group of them. Unless we are thinking of the same person :D
I know a guy in PA with them.

I have confirmation from an importer that they are getting in two Gibberosa varients from the Congo. One varient is "Mikula" and the other will be a pleasant suprise to most. These fish will arrive in the states in early July.

Most already know that Kapampa's are coming in.
Steve, I hope you will forgive me for being a little playful :wink:

This is exciting news! Wild fish are coming in from the Congo again and from collection points that we haven't seen fish from in a long time. That is awesome :dancing: It will be nice to see more Mikula in the states and hopefully we can get some great looking F1 fry in the future as folks begin the breed them. It will be interesting to see how well this "new" and very beautiful varient does.

Steve, are you going to be getting some more Mikula from the upcoming import?

Congrats. Did you buy the fry from somebody or do you have a breeding colony of Mikula yourself. Either way, congrats :thumb:
