Just seeing if they are around at all in the US. I had a beautiful F1 pair a few years back and would love some again.
Current stock-2 F1 Breeding pairs of Chuco Micropthalmus, F1 Theraps Lentiginosum (2 breeding pairs), Theraps Coeruleus (1 breeding pair), 7 5-8" F0 Ornatum "Rio Choco", 2 Beani "White" and about 400 Micropthalmus fry!

I think interest in this species is growing with every passing year. Would love to get some too.

They seem to be around in europe but I don't hear much about them here. Biggest loss I've ever had was losing that pair!

I wonder why it is so difficult to get collecting permits for Panama? Once in Panama, getting to where this species lives is very easy.
