Paretroplus menarambo: A Year in Review

Post by Jim Cumming » Sat Jan 11, 2014 1:45 pm

In December of 2012, my pair of Pinstriped Damba spawned for the first time. Here is a summary of the development of the spawn over the past year into beautiful young adults. I have kept about 20 to grow out ... my next generation. This species along with virtually every other damba species is critically endangered in their native Madagascar and on the brink of extinction.

Absolutely gorgeous. Not much to add apart from the fact that I agree they are amazing fish. Hope you've found someone interested in the fry?
Cheers
