Here are a few photos I took last week of various stock tanks and a few breeders. Please don't hesitate to review the stock list at my webpage at http://www.tangledupincichlids.com F1 juveniles are available from my wild H. bartoni colony. Can't get enough great photos of these wild Suriname peacock bass. TUIC is the exclusive importer of wild Nicaraguan cichlids. F1 adolescent size and young adults that were hatched and raised here are available in various sizes and colors from wild xanthic/colored adults. These are F1 juveniles from the only wild white pair of A. labiatus in the US. Wild parental 'dad' pictured below. Juveniles from 'nano' pairs such as the one pictured above are now available. I think the male is discussing dinner with a Petenia and deppi with whom he shares a tank. A 'nematopus condo' found in one of my grow out tanks of F1 Nicaraguan 'neets'. Beautifully colored grow outs of H. capintis 'Escondido' are available up to 4-4.5" sizes. Above is a pair of 'marbled' or 'calico' convicts which is currently producing high quality juveniles. Did you know that TUIC introduced and originally distributed this attractive little sport back @ 1996? Above photos feature F1 adolescent and young adults of A. sagittae that were hatched and raised here. This species was imported exclusively by TUIC and is endemic to only one crator lake in Nicaragua - Lago Xiloa. Interestingly, A. sagittae and A. xiloaensis (also endemic to same lake) are the only Amphilopohus species in which actual blue color can be seen on xanthic/colored individuals. F1 A. xiloaensis examples can be seen directly below this caption. These two marble motoros are extremely well conditioned and accept all forms of prepared foods including pellets. Sorry the clown loaches are not for sale The above pair of colorful T. 'Mixteco gold' are larger examples of the F1 adolescent stock now available. Good stock available of boldly patterned grow out jaguar cichlids. Young V. synspilus already displaying strong color are available. The Madagascar 'small spot polleni' are a very showy and hardy cichlid. Pictured above are chunky grow outs. The above young pair of wild undescribed oscars known in the trade as 'Orinoco oscar' are available to a prospective breeder. Immediately below is a photo of what this attractive oscar looks like as a juvenile. Need a larger growing, cichlid-hardly pleco? The 'royal watermelon pleco' or L330 is an excellent and remarkably attractive choice. There are many other unique and attractive plecos on hand that can add interest as well as serve important funtion in small to large tanks. I could not remember the origin of this gorgeous wild male severum when I uploaded the photo. Now I do. It's from Rio Inirida! A real monster fish from Indonesia.
