My understanding is that they exist in waters that are protected by conservaton efforts as well as by crocs! I don't think you can get wild caughts legitimately.danumber1stunnar said:yeah i figured that i will order me some wild caughts eventually
My longola are doing great. And yes they put out plenty of fry.geoff_tropheus said:Tank how are your REd Fins? Still making fry?
Did you actually get your Bulu's to have fry?
2-3 years? I will go.....Longstocking said:I asked Konings about them last Saturday.
He said... that he has never seen one in the wild ( the picture in his book was taken by someone else ) . He thinks they are found FAR south of bulu point and at 90 feet or so ( The Bulu Point location is WRONG ) . If you know anything about diving you would know you can't spend a long time at 90 feet. Basically... you have about 20 min to go down to depth and catch the buggers ! Deep diving is dangerous... especially working with nets.
I think I've decided that in about 2-3 years I'm going to take 2 weeks and go looking for these fish Any divers want to join me ? :wink:
they were on a list in which a local breeder i buy from ordered from in a africa order they were going for 150 each landed and i really did not want to invest that much money so i ordered 12 wc black comps. and figured i would try to buy some fry now i am thinking i should have bought i also saw them on african cichlids aquaculture for 60 a piece plus all import fees freight broker etc i even send them a picture of one to mkae sure we were talking about the same fish only thing is that you have to order at least 10 boxes of fish from themgeoff_tropheus said:They can still be had. You got to find a personal diver to go and collect them.
They are solitaire animals and in deep water very expensive to go and collect. This endeavor requires lots of time and lots of patience that most do not have anymore.
Their true locations are a mystery, and highly rumored to be in Tanzanian Wildlife parks that are very protected or in locations that require serious bribe money to travel near or enter.
