Paratheraps breidohri (photos)

Here's a little update I would like to share of some P. breidohri I've been keeping for a few months. There's no particular theme to the look of the tank, but it's nice to see these two fish cruising around it. 8)

I like them.

Once, I think in 1988 or so, I had a male as beautifull as these.

Are they wild caught?

Thanks Bas, they are nice, I like the subtle pastel colouration they display. 8)

I'm not 100% sure of their provence, however the vendor said the parents were picked up from the ACA show sometime ago, possibly from Mo Devlin's pair??

Lee they look great. I have been trying to get a group of 4-6 for some time. A buddy of mine had several for me recently but said he could not get in touch with me so he let them go. Mo had and awesome male. Unfortunately he does not have him anymore. Hopefully it will not be long before I get some.

They're really cool fish, but need a bit of time to develop, you won't be disappointed. BTW, these came from Dan at 'Cichlids of the Americas'. :D
