F2 Aulonocara sp. "Chitande Type Masinje"

I'll give some locals first crack at these before they go to Aquamania next month.

They are anywhere from 1" to 2.5". I can take a pretty good guess at sexing them (some are pretty obvious like the male in that picture). For those confused by the "F" convention, that's generations from wild caught. So these that I'm selling are grandchildren of parents caught wild from Lake Malawi.

Here's some info about this particular peacock variety: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

My experience is that they are pretty peaceful compared to many other Africans and will do fine in a tank that isn't enormous. I've kept my breeding group in a 40 breeder along with a few other fish. They seem to max out at no bigger than 5".

I was looking for $7 each which seemed to be fine for some of the CCA members who were very interested. Shoot me a message if you want in. I can arrange to meet so you don't have to drive all the way out to Powhatan.

Thanks.
